WVROCKS Information

Finding classes to take that fit into the schedule of the adult learner can be difficult. In an effort to make college more accessible to all West Virginians, the Higher Education Policy Commission (HEPC), with assistance from WVNET, developed a web portal, the West Virginia Remote Online Collaborative Knowledge System (WVROCKS). WVROCKS is designed to be a collaborative effort between all West Virginia higher education institutions who offer the Regents Bachelor of Arts and Board of Governors degree. The majority of the courses are 100% online. A handful of courses blend both limited face-to- face meetings with asynchronous (online) activities. All courses are offered in an eight-week time frame. With five starts dates a year, it is possible for students taking classes on the portal to complete fifteen hours of course credit per year by taking one course at a time.
