Virginia Resident Tuition Scholarship

VCU is pleased to offer undergraduate Virginia residents a one-time tuition scholarship to offset the 3% tuition increase in the 2022-2023 academic year. This tuition scholarship effectively keeps a zero percent tuition increase for undergraduate Virginia residents for the fourth consecutive academic year.

How it works:

Undergraduate Virginia residents will receive a tuition scholarship credit on their billing statement for tuition cost differences between the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 academic year. Students will automatically be considered for the tuition scholarship based upon enrollment at VCU. No application is necessary.

Example 1: 

An undergraduate Virginia resident student taking 1-14 credit hours:

  • Fall 2021 was charged $417 per credit hour
  • Fall 2022 will be charged $430 per credit hour
  • A tuition scholarship will reduce the tuition cost of the billing statement by $13 per credit hour ($430 - $417 = $13)
  • In this example, a student enrolled in 14 credit hours for fall 2022 will receive a tuition scholarship in the amount of $182 ($13 x 14 credit hours = $182)

Example 2:

An undergraduate Virginia resident student taking 15 credit hours

  • Fall 2021 was charged $6,047
  • Fall 2022 will be charged $6,236
  • A tuition scholarship will reduce the tuition cost of the billing statement by $189 ($6,236 - $6,047 = $189)
  • In this example, a student enrolled in 15 credit hours for fall 2022 will receive a tuition scholarship in the amount of $189.
