VCU’s Student Financial Services is made up of the Student Financial Management Center, Office of Financial Aid and Student Accounting.
Student Financial Management Center
The Student Financial Management Center serves as a central hub for financial outreach, literacy and management to VCU students, parents and families. SFMC's goal is to provide personalized experiences on matters concerning financial wellness, as well as managing debt, budgeting and planning for the future. Contact our financial counselors for questions related to financial planning, billing, financial aid and more.
Office of Financial Aid
The Office of Financial Aid provides a variety of services to help students afford higher education via grants, scholarships, work-study employment and loans. The Office of Financial Aid administers and distributes funds from federal, state, institutional and private fund sources. We also offer one-on-one appointments for students, their parents, faculty and staff.
