VCU Admissions and Aid

At VCU, we don’t have an “average” student.

Admissions & Aid

There is no typical here — and definitely no cookie-cutter formula for being a good fit.

What helps? A love for city living. A desire to meet people different from yourself. And a hunger to chase every opportunity.

At VCU students are encouraged to conduct research, start businesses and serve the community — all before they graduate.

We provide top-ranked academic programs, research opportunities and an urban setting so you can live and learn in the real world.

Tuition & Aid

We know money matters. For many, it’s a big factor in the school you choose. That’s why we work with students to find scholarships, grants and loans that ease the burden of paying for college.

2017-18 TUITION AND FEES*

$13,624 in-state tuition

$33,656 out-of-state tuition

$15,203 average financial aid package**

*Base tuition and fees only
**For full-time undergraduates

Bring your passion. Bring your talent. Bring your drive.
