More than YOU might expect

At West Virginia University Potomac State College, you can take control of your future and discover the career you’ve always wanted (or even the one you never knew existed).

WVU Keyser Campus is known for its small class sizes, student-centered focus and entrepreneurial spirit – for more than 1,400 students, we are a home away from home.

We offer a 100-year academic tradition with more than 50 two-year degree programs that students can go onto complete at WVU Morgantown or WVU Beckley. We also offer six career-technical degree programs in areas such as Criminal Justice and Sustainable Agriculture Entrepreneurship (SAGE).  Or students might choose to stay at PSC for all four years of their academic careers to earn a bachelor of applied science degree in one of our six offerings including: Business Management, Computer Information Systems, Criminal Justice, Nursing (BSN) Coming Fall 2018, Regents Bachelor of Arts, and SAGE.

Potomac State touts six residence halls, 11 competitive sports teams and tons of student activities – all in a beautiful mountain setting.

And all at a cost that ranks among the lowest in the country for a four-year institution.
