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 for the 2022-23 academic year was $4,500.

The VTAG application for the 2023-24 academic year must be submitted to the Office of Financial Aid by July 31, 2023. VTAG applications submitted after the July 31, 2023 deadline will only be considered if funding is available for late applications. VTAG applications are not accepted after December 1, 2023. Students who are currently receiving VTAG at the University of Richmond do not need to submit another application in subsequent years.
