Brigette Minney has also joined the Keyser team as a coordinator and will be working with Jeanette to assist students who reach out to the Hub. Please welcome both of them to their new positions! 

David Shoemaker has been promoted to assistant director within Student Financial Services, where he will be part of the leadership team administering financial aid and scholarship offers, disbursement, and reconciliation for the University.

Brian Bollinger is an example of the WVU Hub’s collaboration across campuses. Brian has been working four days per week at the Keyser Hub and one day per week at the Morgantown Hub. His outreach work includes presenting to first-year classes about what the WVU Hub offers and visiting area high schools to assist with FAFSA completion.

The WVU Hub is the University’s one-stop shop for all things financial aid, billing, student accounts, and more. We are proud of our staff as they serve all students at all campuses while maintaining a unified, cross-trained team that continues the same outstanding tradition of support.

In addition to the Keyser WVU Hub location, remember to direct students and families to the WVU Hub’s contact webpage where they can submit an online ticket for assistance, set up a virtual appointment, and find information on locations at all WVU campuses.
