Affordability & Financial Aid

As graduating high schoolers and their parents make final decisions about college, many will place affordability and value near the top of their list. Through its financial aid program, the University of Virginia strives to remove barriers to attending UVA. Watch this video for an introduction to UVA affordability, and visit for more details.

At UVA, we believe the accessibility and affordability of a quality education should be based on a student鈥檚 academic performance, talent and character 鈥 not on their ability to pay.

  • We help talented students pursue their dreams. Students are offered admission based on their intellect, academic achievements and extracurricular involvement, regardless of their 铿乶ancial situation or ability to pay.
  • We meet 100% of 铿乶ancial need. UVA meets the demonstrated 铿乶ancial need for all in-state and out-of-state students applying by the annual March 1st deadline, through a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study and need-based loans.
  • Manageable loans. UVA is committed to limiting need-based loans for students with 铿乶ancial need, so they graduate with less debt.
