After Attending NSO

After attending NSO, there are still a few items you need to complete before starting class on August 16!

1) Tell us about your experience!

Thank you for attending New Student Orientation. How did you enjoy your day? After attending NSO you will be emailed a survey. Provide some feedback about your experience and you could win a $25 Barnes & Noble Bookstore gift card!

2) Make sure you are covered — it’s required!

All WVU domestic students enrolled in six or more credit hours are required to carry health insurance coverage. Any student who is already covered by another approved health insurance plan may complete the  insurance waiver application to opt out of the WVU plan. This waiver is currently open and is due August 22, 2017.

Students without an approved waiver on file will be automatically enrolled in the WVU Aetna student health insurance plan, at a cost of $912 per term.

3) Choose or change your dining plan

All students living in WVU residence halls are required to have a dining plan, and the deadline to choose a Dining Plan is August 16, 2017. After this deadline, students who have not selected a plan will be automatically assigned the Blue Plan. If you are commuting, you have the option of purchasing a non-resident plan. Already picked your dining plan? If you need to change, there is no cost to do so prior to the August 16 deadline.

4) Pay your bill

Please note: your fall bill will not reflect the cost of tuition and fees until after you register for classes at New Student Orientation. Tuition will be available on July 6, 2017, and payment is due July 26, 2017 (less displayed financial aid). You can pay online through your WVU Portal.

5) Expecting a refund?

Authorized Financial Aid will disburse to student accounts on August 6, 2017. If you are expecting a refund from your financial aid, make sure you indicate your refund preferences with our refund partner, Tuition Management Systems.

Students are highly encouraged to establish a preference for Direct Deposit in order to receive their refund in a timely manner.

Establish Your Refund Preferences

For those who have signed up for Direct Deposit, refunds will be available on August 11, 2017 and will continue through the following weeks as funds are processed to student accounts. To determine the amount that will be due after financial aid disburses, subtract the authorized aid from the amount due in  STAR.

6) Reserve your textbooks

You can order and pay for your books and supplies online by following these steps:
  • Go to STAR. 
  • Select STAR Information System Login and enter your WVU Login credentials. 
  • Inside STAR, select the Student Services and Housing tab.
  • Select Registration Menu. 
  • Select WVU Bookstore.
  • Select a term from the drop down menu to order your books.
A shopping cart with your book order (based on the classes for which you are registered) will be created on the WVU Bookstore website. During the checkout process, you can choose pick-up or home delivery and pay by credit card, Mountie Bounty, PayPal or your remaining Financial Aid*. You can change or cancel the order any time before your order is delivered.
