A Private Education Made Affordable
Richmond is among only 1 percent of institutions in the U.S. with both a "need-blind" admission policy and a guarantee to meet 100 percent of demonstrated need for traditional undergraduate applicants. Forty percent of undergraduates are eligible for need-based aid, with an average aid package of $44,770. Plus, all first-year applicants are considered for merit-based aid, including full-tuition scholarships and a variety of interest-based programs.
Richmond ScholarsThe Richmond Scholars program awards the University's most prestigious academic scholarships. Given to 45 incoming undergraduate students, these awards range from full tuition to full tuition plus room and meals. All first-year applicants for undergraduate admission who apply by Dec. 1 are considered automatically.
Richmond's Promise to Virginia
For Virginia undergraduate students with an annual parental income of $60,000 or less, the University will provide a full financial aid package equal to tuition, room, and meal plan, with no loans. Students must apply for first-year admission to qualify.
