Programs for Virginians

In addition to the University's merit scholarships and need-based financial aid, students from Virginia may take advantage of these programs:

  • Richmond’s Promise to Virginia provides a financial aid package equal to full-time tuition and standard room and board (without loans) for Virginia residents who:
    • qualify for admission to Richmond as first-year students;
    • have a total annual family income of $60,000 or less;
      • includes taxable and untaxed income
      • includes income of student, parent(s) and partner (if applicable)
      • for students whose parents are divorced or separated, includes income of student, custodial parent, custodial parent’s spouse or partner (if applicable), and noncustodial parent
    • qualify for need-based financial aid based on Richmond’s need analysis formula;
    • are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents; and
    • are domiciliary residents of Virginia. (Both the student and the student’s parent must be domiciliary residents of Virginia; for students whose parents are divorced or separated, the custodial parent must be a domiciliary resident of Virginia.)
  • All Virginia residents are eligible to receive the annual Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (VTAG) from the Commonwealth of Virginia. The estimated amount for the 2015-16 school year is $3,100. The application must be submitted by July 31, 2015. Note: for dependent students under the age of 24, residency status is generally determined based on the parent(s) state of legal residence.
