Prospective Undergraduates

The University of Richmond prides itself on having some of the best financial aid resources anywhere—and helping students and their families understand the aid process.

Richmond promises to meet 100% of demonstrated need for every admitted student—and we don't consider financial need when making admission decisions for U.S. citizens and permanent residents who enter as first year students. Learn more about our need-based aid program, Richmond in Reach. Also, use our quick cost estimator, MyinTuition, to see how affordable Richmond may be for you. 

All first-year applicants—regardless of need-based aid eligibility—are considered for merit-based aid, including full-tuition scholarships and a variety of interest-based programs.

And there are other sources of financial aid available to help students and their families meet educational expenses.

Helpful Hint!

Check your Spider Portal for updates on the status of both your admissions and financial aid applications. Incomplete applications can result in missed deadlines!
