A Student Recruiter will assist you in taking your next step and becoming a part of our New River family!

If you have submitted an Application for Admission and have questions or need assistance, please call the Office of Admissions on the campus you plan to attend. During peak enrollment times, please allow 24-48 hours for your call to be returned (July-August and November-January). You will receive an admit letter (addressed to your mailing address on your application) within 5-10 business days from processing your application detailing any outstanding requirements you have to be fully admitted.  If you require immediate assistance, please call the Office of Enrollment Services, 304-929-6720. If you would like to share how we can improve or discuss a complaint, please call the Director of Enrollment Services, (304) 929-5480.

The campus selected on the Application for Admission is where the Admission file will be housed, financial aid funds will be distributed (if eligible), and registration for classes will occur. The mailing address on the Application is where any official college correspondence will be mailed. Please make sure to update your address or telephone information if it changes at anytime with the Registrar's office, visit online FORMS or in person at the Registrar's Office at the Raleigh Co. campus. The Office of Admissions on any other campus may assist on behalf of the Registrar's Office.  An applicant should receive an admit letter within 5-10 business days from the time we receive and process the application. One week prior to the close of registration, if a personal email address is provided you will receive notification by email as well.

New Students are seen in the Office of Admissions initially before being assigned to a faculty advisor. The faculty advisor will work with the student to assist in advising and registration after the first schedule is prepared, during a period called "current student registration".

New students are seen by appointment for advising and registration and walk-ins may be worked in when our schedule permits (example: a cancellation occurs). Otherwise we will ask that you scheule an appointment for registration so that we may devote our time and attention to working with you. A future student is always welcome to stop by and pick up an application and get information on the steps to enrollment. You may also want to schedule a Career Assessment with the Student Success Center if you are not sure of what you would like to pursue or what major you will chose. New student registration begins after the designated specific current student registration period ends each semester (see Academic Calendar). 

Fully admitted students (complete admission file) will be allowed to register during the first phase, priority registration. Information will be posted on Facebook and under our Orientation link regarding registration and postcards are mailed announcing registration dates. Please call to schedule your appointment once you are notified of your admission status and have completed your mandatory online student Orientation. You may also email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your name, campus, and telephone numbers to reach you before 4 p.m. and we will call you back with appointment choices.

Online orientation is open several weeks prior to the beginning of new student registration and is a requirement in order to register for classes. For more information, visit Student Orientation

Students must be of junior or senior status to enroll. Students will be able to register for these classes on site at the high school when a representative from New River schedules an enrollment visit. The date will be announced at the high school in advance and registration for these courses may not take place on the local college campus.

College classes are also offered for high school students on New River campuses. 

Current junior or senior high school students may take college courses on our New River College campus with permission and may register on campus when new students are permitted to register for classes (after current student registration ends- see Academic Calendar).

 

High School students, to include those who complete graduation requirements early, are not eligible to receive Financial Aid until the Fall semester following graduation. Students are responsible for all tuition, fees and textbook costs if enrolling prior to this time.

  • Students must have junior or senior status
  • Must have an overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or higher
  • Students must submit an Application for Admission each term

Student Services

Welcome to New River Community and Technical College! To help you have a successful college experience, we offer services to assist you at four campuses in Beckley/Beaver, Princeton, Lewisburg and Summersville.  Services are also provided at our Advanced Technology Center location in Ghent, WV. We try to accommodate your busy schedule with services at each location everyday and evening hours as advertised. Our professional staff will assist you with admission to the college, career assessment, paying for college (financial aid opportunities), academic advising and class scheduling, career planning and placement, as well as placement testing and free tutoring.

In addition to our classes and academic services, New River Community and Technical College is offering a growing selection of student services in which to participate outside the classroom. From various areas on each campus for students to hang out to our Student Government Association, we offer students the opportunity to get more from their college experience outside of the classroom.

We are also open to starting new services for students, so if there’s nothing to your liking on your campus, suggest something! It’s never too late to start a new student organization or club at the college if there’s enough support around it. Don’t forget, we are always open to new ideas and suggestions from students in general, so don’t be afraid to tell us any ideas you might have to improve the college. We are here for you. Let us know what you need to make your college experience a great one!
