Mid-Year Academy

This information is being provided to all students returning to WVU and have been placed on academic probation. Students who achieved below a 2.0 overall GPA in Spring 2023 have been placed on academic probation and must participate in Mid-Year Academy. Mid-Year Academy (MYA) is designed to assist you in achieving academic success this fall so that you are empowered to work toward improving your GPA and eventually removing your academic probation status.

All the required MYA activities discussed below need to be completed by the time classes start on Wednesday, August 16.

Please note that if you have been processed to change your major to something outside the College of Applied Human Sciences (CAHS), your Mid-Year Academy will be with that college and you should contact that specific college for their required next steps. If you have not yet been processed for a major change, then you must complete the MYA activities for CAHS. If you are unsure of your major change status, or if you are not returning to WVU in the spring, please contact

Do you need to take less classes than you registered for? Do you need to repeat courses under the University’s D/F repeat policy?
