Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant

The Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (VTAG), funded by the Commonwealth of Virginia, provides grant assistance to degree-seeking undergraduate students who are Virginia residents and who enroll full-time during the regular academic year.

  • Full-time status requires at least 3.5 units per term for undergraduate students.
  • For dependent students under the age of 24, residency status is generally determined based on the state of legal residence of the parent(s).

The VTAG amount is set anually by the General Assembly and is $5,125 for the 2024-25 academic year. 

The VTAG application for the 2024-25 academic year must be submitted to the Office of Financial Aid by September 15, 2024. VTAG applications submitted after this deadline will only be considered if funding is available for late applications. VTAG applications are not accepted after December 1, 2024. Students who are currently receiving VTAG at the University of Richmond do not need to submit another application in subsequent years.
