Cost Calculators

Richmond is among only 1 percent of institutions in the U.S. with both a "need-blind" admission policy for U.S. citizens and permanent residents and a guarantee to meet 100 percent of demonstrated need for all admitted students. Plus, all first-year applicants are considered for merit-based aid, including full-tuition, housing and food scholarships. Nearly 40 percent of undergraduates are eligible for need-based aid, and approximately two-thirds receive some type of aid.

Below are two tools you can use to estimate the cost of attending Richmond: MyinTuition, which is a quick reference tool for general estimates, and the Net Price Calculator, which provides a more in-depth assessment. Both provide, based on information you enter, an estimate of need-based grants/scholarships, student loans, and work-study. Neither tool can provide an estimate of eligibility for Richmond’s merit scholarships, which may significantly reduce the cost to attend. Richmond’s Office of Financial Aid will determine the final aid offer based on your actual financial aid application.


Richmond has partnered with MyinTuition, an online tool that provides students and their families quick access to the information they need to make decisions about college affordability. Based on six basic financial questions, MyinTuition provides an estimate of your cost to attend Richmond. Visit Richmond’s MyinTuition app, answer six questions, and receive your cost estimate.

Answers are anonymous, and the tool does not save any personally identifiable information.

Net Price Calculator

For a deeper dive and a more detailed estimate, Richmond's Net Price Calculator is designed to give you an indication of the amount and types of financial aid for which you might qualify if you were a college freshman attending the University of Richmond full-time. As you use this tool, keep in mind there are many factors that go into assessing the estimated price you receive, and each school assesses financial aid eligibility differently.

The calculator assesses the financial situation of your family using the information you provide and then estimates the amount of grants, scholarships, and other financial aid that is likely to be available to you. Your “net price” is the difference between the Cost of Attendance and the estimated amount of grants and scholarships.
