Located in the heart of an astonishing mountain playground, Mountain State University, a
premier private institution, gives our students a quality education that leads to rewarding
employment. Offering over 90 degree concentrations from certificates to graduate degrees, MSU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association. Formerly The College of West Virginia, the institution adopted its new name on August 28, 2001.
Serving over 3000 students yearly, our commitment to a flexible learning environment has led us to develop distance learning opportunities tailored to students with other work and family responsibilities. Innovative programs and responding to the needs of students are the keys to Mountain State University's success. Our curriculum is focused on real-world skills and knowledge, not just theory. "Opportunities as high as our mountains, Mountain State University."
