Grading Response to Covid19 Pandemic
In order to accommodate the unique learning environment during the current pandemic, West Virginia University has implemented a process to allow students to change their grading mode from the standard ‘A through F’, to a High Pass (HP), Pass (P), and Fail (F) option.
- High Pass (HP):
- Awarded for students who would have earned an A, B, or C under standard grade mode
- Systematically works as a C in term of utilization towards progressing in a course sequence as a prerequisite. (e.g. Students will need an HP in MATH 155 to take MATH 156)
- Does not impact GPA
- Pass (P):
- Awarded to students who would have earned a D under standard grade mode.
- Meets degree requirements (such as GEF) that only require a passing grade to complete.
- Does not impact GPA
- Fail (F)
- Functionally operates as the same as an F in the A-F grade mode.
- Does impact GPA
General Transfer Credit Information
Transfer Credit Database
To identify how evaluated coursework transfers to WVU, please reference the transfer credit database (downloading and installing the launcher is required) .
If you are having difficulties opening the database, you may access the established equivalencies in the following Excel spreadsheet.
Institutions and courses that are not found within the database simply have not been evaluate d at this point. Coursework may be evaluated using WVU's Transfer Equivalency Review Request (TERR) system.
Requesting Coursework to be Evaluated
Courses may be evaluated and added to the WVU Transfer Credit Database by utilizing the Transfer Equivalency Review Request (TERR) system . In most cases, the review process takes 5 to 10 business days.
The WVU Office of the Registrar is able to determine certain equivalencies at the 100/1000 (freshman) and 200/2000 (sophomore) level. If you have 5 or more courses at or below the 200/2000 level, please utilize the following spreadsheet and email email@example.com the list for an initial review. You will be notified of our findings, and if further review through TERR is necessary.
Please review the requirements for submitting a request as incomplete requests will cause a delay in evaluation.
Course Coding of Transferable Credit

University utilizes unique numbering for the various types of credit brought to
WVU. The following legend explains the codes utilized by WVU, and when they may
|xTC||Utilized to designate coursework taken from a transfer institution that was
found to not have a direct equivalent at WVU. The preceding number (x) indicates
the level the course was taken as at the previous institution. The assigned
subject code is determined by the content matter covered.
