Fall 2024 financial aid packaging update for new students:
 VCU is estimating to offer fall 2024 new student financial aid packaging by the end of April 2024 for those students who completed a 2024-2025 FAFSA. This tentative time-frame is subject to change. This update is based upon Department of Education program changes to the 2024-2025 FAFSA and vendor software updates and testing necessary to begin financial aid packaging.
