Residency Requirement

After you drop below half-time enrollment1 or withdraw from college, the post-enrollment obligation (residency requirement) you agreed to when signing the promissory note begins.

Your residency must be verified three times (at the beginning, middle and end) during the two years after the grace period to prevent the grant from converting to a loan.

1  Students cannot start verifying their residency in West Virginia while still receiving a WV Invests Grant award.
