WVC 18 B- 1 - 8
§18B-1-8. Student rights when institutional affiliations or
governance structures change.
(a) When a conflict exists between academic program
requirements at an institution to be consolidated, merged,
separated from, or administratively linked to another state
institution of higher education, the requirements of the
institution at which the student initially enrolled prevail. A
student may not be required to earn additional credits toward the
degree pursued, or to take additional courses, that were not
included in the program of study at the time the student declared
that major at the enrolling institution.
(b) A student enrolled in an institution to be consolidated,
merged, separated from, or administratively linked to another state
institution of higher education shall continue to receive any
state-funded student financial aid for which he or she would
otherwise be eligible.
