Summer BOOST is a program designed to help currently enrolled students at WVU Tech increase their cumulative GPA and earn course credit during the summer term. This program will provide students with resources that will help in academic success. Upon completion of the program, with a C or better in each course, students are eligible for a summer stipend. In-state students can earn up to 30% of university tuition. Out-of-state students can earn up to 40% of university tuition. Students must be enrolled in a regular Summer term course (between May 13th and August 2nd, 2024).
Maymester 2024 course sections are not supported through this program.
Classes must be offered by WVU Tech or online through another WVU campus.

NOTE:  The information on this site is for WVU Tech Students ONLY. If you are a student of Potomac State or WVU Morgantown, please go to their BOOST website for details

Participants must meet ONE of the following eligibility requirements:

  • Cumulative GPA below 2.5
  • Re-attempting an eligible D/F repeat or withdrawn course in the Summer term, or
  • Merit-based or need-based aid recipients needing to reach the completion and GPA  benchmark requirements for scholarship eligibility


The tuition stipend for Summer BOOST participants is equivalent to 30% of university tuition for in-state students and 40% for out-of-state students for the Summer 2024 term. Other charges such as college tuition and university fees are not calculated in the tuition stipend once the program is completed.

 The following actions are required for tuition stipend consideration:

  • Earn a C or better in attempted courses in the Summer 2024 term
  • Utilize one of the following academic resources during each Summer term they are enrolled:
  • Complete the academic resource assessment (this will be emailed to students' MIX account) during each Summer term.
  • Enroll in at least one course at WVU Tech for the Fall 2024 term.
Students completing the requirements for the stipend will receive their payment approximately two weeks  AFTER final grades are released in August. Once it is processed the stipend will be credited to the student account.


Students can raise their cumulative GPA (CGPA) by retaking courses where a higher grade is desired. By focusing on just these classes, students can have an opportunity to earn the CGPA needed to start the next school year in good academic standing or  maintain the PROMISE and/or Institutional Scholarships and need-based aid. By taking a summer course, eligible students can stay on track.

Other benefits include:

  • Students can take part in smaller, more intensive classes.
  • Students can utilize tutoring and online workshops to help improve academic performance.
  • Students on academic suspension can potentially raise their CGPA sufficiently to return to WVU Tech for the upcoming Fall term.
  • Students who earn a C or better in each attempted course and complete the academic resource requirement (including assessment), are eligible for a tuition stipend to be applied as a credit to the student account.


  • Student must pay Summer tuition before courses begin.
  • Courses during Summer sessions are typically either 3 or 6 weeks long. It is your responsibility to check the times and dates for courses when registering.
  • Summer BOOST program decisions will be emailed on rolling basis starting around May 6th.
  • Stipends will not be credited to student accounts until approximately TWO weeks after final grades are released in August.
