MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia University has postponed the deadline to pay some fall charges to Sept. 1.

The July eBills had been due on Aug. 1, the school said in a news release. The change was made after a phased return for students was announced this week.

The phased return will mean fewer students on the Morgantown campus for in-person classes, with plans to return more students as the semester continues, the release said.

Classes on the Morgantown campus will begin Aug. 26, a week later than planned originally. Classes on the Beckley and Keyser campuses will begin Aug. 19. Residence hall move-in will also be delayed a week, to Aug. 22.

The changes are in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Free COVID-19 tests will be required for students taking classes on campus or using resources on campus.
