When you are looking for college, you want to find the right fit. Sometimes the best option is closer than you think. Here you will benefit from the advantages of a large university on a smaller campus setting. 

Potomac State College, located on the WVU Keyser campus and part of the WVU system, is known for its small size and tradition of academic excellence. For over 1,300 students, we are a home away from home. And our metro tuition provides a significant savings for residents of one of our metro counties.
