Tuition, Fees, Housing & Dining

 

Tuition & Fees

 
University tuition and fees, listed below, consist of tuition and required fees, as well as a student activities fee. Students enrolled for three or fewer regular credits, or research credits only, are assessed partial required fees and student activities fees. Students paying only the partial required fees do not receive student access to athletic events. The student activities fee subsidizes activities approved by the Student Council, such as publications, club sports, and service organizations. In addition, students enrolled in the Graduate Schools of Arts and Sciences, Architecture, Business, Education, Engineering, Law, and Nursing are required to pay special school fees. Tuition is based on the studentís residency classification (i.e., either Virginia or out-of-state). University tuition and fees are subject to change.

Variable Charge Schools

TOP
 
University students enrolled in variable charge graduate schools are assessed tuition and fees based on their residency status, school of enrollment, and enrollment credits. For tuition and fee assessment purposes, enrollment credits are classified as either regular credit, non-topical research, or audit.

Students enrolled for regular credits, or regular credits plus non-topical research and/or audit credits, are assessed tuition and fees based only on the number of regular credits.

Students enrolled for non-topical credits, or non-topical research credits plus audit hours, are assessed tuition and fees under the classification of ďresearch.Ē

For information on course classification and academic requirements, contact the appropriate school.

Waiver of Tuition and/or Fees The following qualified individuals may request a waiver of a portion or all of the tuition and fees associated with attendance at the University of Virginia. This waiver must be requested each semester from the Student Accounts section of Student Financial Services. Individuals who waive their fees relinquish entitlement to use the facility or activity that the fees support, and their student identification cards are deactivated accordingly.

Employee Waiver Program University of Virginia full-time salaried faculty (9- or 12-month), ROTC faculty, full-time staff, and health care professionals who have been employed for one year or more may request the waiver of tuition and fees for enrollment in one course per semester. The waiver must be requested prior to the end of the registration period for that semester.

This waiver policy (760.800) is not applicable to non-credit or audited courses, non-topical research credits, books, or study material costs.

The course for which the waiver is obtained must be completed with a passing grade or better. Otherwise, the University must be reimbursed for the waived charges within 30 days of the issuance of grades. Students must pay all charges incurred if they withdraw from a course.

Fee Waiver Full-time faculty and staff of the University of Virginia and the UVa Health System may also waive all required fees associated with attendance at the University in accordance with the Universityís Tuition Waiver Policy.

Faculty Spouse The spouse of a full-time University faculty member may elect to waive the athletics and/or student health components of the required fees.

 

 

Combined Degree Programs Tuition & Fees

TOP
 
J.D.-M.B.A. Program During enrollment in this program, the student is treated as a regularly matriculated student at the school in which he or she is in residence. The student thus pays the School of Law tuition and fees while in residence at the School of Law, and the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration tuition and fees while in residence at Darden.

J.D.-M.A. Program During enrollment in this program, the student is treated as regularly matriculated at the school in which the student is in residence. The student thus pays the School of Law tuition and fees while in residence at the School of Law, and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences tuition and fees while in residence at that school.

 

 

Payment

TOP
 
Fall and Spring Semester Registration Registration is completed by using ISIS each semester. Instructions for registering are available in the Course Offering Directory and online at www.virginia.edu/registrar. Upon completion of the registration process, an individual is classified as a registered student. Not attending classes does not alter the registration status or the assessment of tuition and fees. Once registered for a semester, a student may terminate registration only through official withdrawal from the University.

Payment and Late Payment The final date for payment of student account bills for University charges is printed on the bill mailed to the student. The payment due date for the fall semester is August 13, 2003; for the spring semester, it is usually in the first week of January. Failure to receive a bill does not waive the requirement for payment when due. Any student who fails to pay the amount due by the specified payment due date is charged as follows:

Late fee $50
Late fee for TAs, RAs, and Veterans $10

Students are billed for late fees after registration. Payment of tuition and fees by a check that is returned from the bank as non-negotiable will incur a late fee if the repayment is not received by the published deadlines. A $20 service charge will also be assessed. Checks returned for non-sufficient or uncollected funds are immediately redeposited by our bank. Postdated checks should not be submitted; each check is immediately processed for payment regardless of its date.

The University does not accept credit card payments for tuition, fees, or housing and dining charges.

Dropping CoursesóDeadline for Financial Credit For students enrolled in variable charge graduate schools to receive full financial credit for dropped courses, the course must be dropped by the end of the sixth week of the school term and the student must remain enrolled in at least one course at the University. The definition of the sixth school week corresponds to the definition set forth in the withdrawal refund schedule. This drop date is used only for determining financial credit and does not bear any correlation to the dates set forth by the schools for dropping courses without academic penalty.

 

 

Installment Payment Plan

TOP
 
In conjunction with a private vendor, the University has developed an installment plan. For an annual fee of $60, tuition, fees, housing, and dining charges may be paid in monthly installments. The final date to enroll in the payment plan is July 31, 2003. For complete details, contact Tuition Management Systems at 800-722-4867 or www.afford.com.
 

 

Withdrawal from the University

TOP
 
Tuition and Fees Students who withdraw from the University are charged a percentage of the tuition and fees based on the school week within which the withdrawal occurs. A school week is defined as the period beginning on Monday and ending on the succeeding Sunday; the first school week of a semester is defined as that week within which the University registration concludes. The effective date of withdrawal is determined by the dean of the school in which the student is enrolled and is recorded on the official withdrawal form that the student must complete as part of the withdrawal process. The schedule for allocation of tuition and fees between amounts charged and amounts credited is listed below. This schedule is subject to change.

School
Week
Percent
Charged
Percent
Credited
1 20 80
2 20 80
3 30 70
4 40 60
5 50 50
6 60 40
7 100 00

Any refunds owed to the student as a result of withdrawal will first be offset against any other amounts owed to the University.

Students who receive financial aid and withdraw prior to the completion of 61% of the enrollment period must repay Title IV funds (i.e., PLUS, Perkins, Subsidized, and Unsubsidized Loans; Pell, SEOG, HETAP, and CSAP Grants) to their sources. To determine what percentage of aid the student has earned, and what percentage must be returned, the financial aid office will divide the number of days the student attended by the number of days in the enrollment period. Additional details are available at the Student Financial Services.

Residence Hall Rent No refund of residence hall rent will be made in the event of withdrawal after the fifth class day of the semester. Upon vacating student housing facilities, the room key must be returned to the student accommodation office. The date the room key is returned to the student accommodation office is the effective termination date of the student housing contract.

 

 

Other Fees & Special Charges

TOP
 
Damage to University Property The student or students responsible are charged at the cost of repair or replacement.

I.D. Replacement Fee A fee of $15 is charged to replace a lost, stolen, or damaged student I.D. card. Payment must be made at the time of replacement.

Return Check Service Fee The University assesses a $20 service fee for all checks returned by the bank as non-negotiable. Checks are redeposited by the bank before they are returned to the University.

Diploma Fees Lost or damaged diplomas may be replaced upon payment of a $25 replacement fee plus a mailing fee. Duplicate diplomas are available upon payment of a $50 duplicate fee plus a mailing fee.

Transcript Fee A fee of $4 is charged for each transcript of a studentís record. Payment must accompany the request.

Late Registration Fee Students who register within two weeks after the prescribed final registration period are assessed a $25 late fee. Students who register more than two weeks after the prescribed registration period are assessed a $50 fee.

Late Payment Fee Any student who fails to make payment by the payment due date specified on the bill is assessed a $50 fee.

Non-Resident Fee Students are charged a fee of $102.00 for each semester they are on an approved leave of absence or each semester they are not enrolled for courses in a resident school but wish to maintain their matriculated status in the school. Students who are not engaged in any course work during the semester in which they expect to graduate must pay the non-resident fee.

 

 

Failure to Pay University Financial Obligations

TOP
 
Enrolled students may be suspended from the University for past due obligations. Suspension includes dropping of courses and prevention from course enrollment for future terms. Current students have their debts offset against any credit balances and other proceeds, such as loan checks. Current and former students have a financial hold placed on their academic transcript. Past due obligations are reported to the state for offset against state income tax refunds, state vendor payments, and lottery winnings, and may be reported to credit bureaus, referred to third party collection agencies or the State Attorney General, or litigated. Debtors may be assessed collection costs up to fifty percent of their debt.
 

 

General Payment Policies

TOP
 
Payment by Final Registration Students are expected to satisfy all outstanding obligations to the University before they are permitted to complete final registration. If outstanding obligations are not satisfied, courses are dropped after the final registration period.

Direct Loans The University subscribes to the federal governmentís Direct Loan Program. Further information on direct loans is available in chapter 3.

University Awarded Loans Proceeds from University awarded loans (e.g., Perkins, health professions, nursing, or institutional loans) are not distributed by check, but are applied directly to the studentís tuition account. Undergraduates must be registered for at least twelve credits, and graduates for the number of credits specified on the loan application, to be eligible to receive credit from these loan proceeds.

Credit Balances Credit balances resulting from a scholarship, fellowship, or University awarded loan are refunded by U.S. mail to arrive on or about October 1 in the fall and February 1 in the spring, unless direct deposit is in effect.

Credit balances resulting from the installment payment plan are refunded in mid-November for the fall semester and mid-April for the spring semester.

Credit balances resulting from overpayment may first be offset against any other past due amounts owed to the University.

Credit balances of less than $5 are not refunded unless requested. The University offers direct deposit of credit balance refunds to studentsí bank accounts. Sign-up forms can be obtained from the payroll office or from the online UVa Forms Directory at uvaforms.virginia.edu/cgi-local/formsDir.cgi.

Direct deposit of credit balances is optional. If not chosen, checks are still issued; however, creation of checks is a slower process than direct deposit.

Bills Are Mailed as Follows:
Graduate Students: prior to fall registration, bills are mailed to the home address. After registration, bills are mailed to the local address.

Home and Local Addresses Student Financial Services uses the home and local addresses that are on file with the Office of the University Registrar. It is the studentís responsibility to maintain current addresses with the university registrar. Failure to update addresses on a timely basis may result in misdirected refund checks and bills.

Special Billing Addresses Students may establish a billing address through Student Financial Services. Once established, this address overrides the university registrarís addresses for billing purposes. This address may be deleted each each year prior to the mailing of Fall Bills in August.

Taxability of Scholarships and Fellowships The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax code permits the exclusion of scholarships or fellowships from income up to the amount used for the payment of course-related expenses (i.e., tuition, fees, books, supplies, and equipment). The IRS does not consider the cost of room and board to be course-related. Stipends or living allowances paid as part of a scholarship or fellowship are considered taxable income. The University is required to withhold taxes on such payments only to nonresident alien recipients not claiming treaty benefits. However, all recipients are required to report their scholarships and fellowships to the IRS by filing a yearly tax return and to pay the requisite taxes. These provisions apply to all scholarship and fellowship recipients of domestic source grants, regardless of whether the recipient is an undergraduate, graduate student, citizen, or nonresident alien. Students should retain receipts for tax deductible items. The University cannot provide tax counsel.

 

 

Auditing Courses

TOP
 
Students currently enrolled for regular or non-topical research courses are not charged for audited courses. However, individuals not currently enrolled who wish to audit courses at the University must do so through the School of Continuing and Professional Studies and are subject to their rate schedule.
 

 

Estimated Personal Expenses

TOP
 
Students should prepare and keep within a budget in order to develop the ability to utilize their resources effectively while living within their means. Instruction in the handling of checks and checking accounts is recommended prior to enrollment.

While the amount of money spent in meeting personal expenses at the University depends largely upon the resources and tastes of the student, the estimates given in Chapter 3 are a helpful guide in the preparation of a budget. These estimates do not include expenses for clothing, travel, memberships in organizations, or recreation and entertainment. A reasonable allowance should be made for these items.

The University requires that all students carry year-round hospitalization insurance. This cost should also be included in a studentís estimate of expenses.

 

 

Additional Expenses

TOP
 
School of Engineering and Applied Science First-year students in this school have an additional expense of approximately $30 for drawing instruments. An inexpensive hand-held electronic calculator with scientific functions (priced about $30 to $100) is also useful.

School of Architecture Students in this school have an additional expense of approximately $120 for supplies.

School of Nursing See Chapter 13 for a detailed explanation of personal expenses.

 

 

Veterans' Benefits

TOP
 
The Office of the University Registrar is the University liaison with the Veterans Administration in matters concerning educational benefits available to veterans under the provisions of Chapters 30, 31, 32, 34, 35 and 1606. (War Orphansí benefits are handled through the scholarships/fellowships office in Student Financial Services, P.O. Box 400204, Charlottesville, VA, 22904-4204: 434-243-8860).

Benefit information and application forms can be found on the VA Website: www.gibill.va.gov/. Inquiries regarding how to start up VA benefits during enrollment at the University and certification procedures should be directed to: Office of the University Registrar, P.O. Box 400203, Charlottesville, VA, 22904-4203: (434) 924-4138 or e-mail: certify@virginia.edu.

 

 

Senior Citizens

TOP
 
In compliance with the Senior Citizens Higher Education Act, the University waives tuition and required fees for courses on a space-available basis. To be eligible, a person must be at least 60 years old, have been legally domiciled in Virginia at least one year before the semester begins, and must gain admission to the University.

To qualify as a full-time or part-time student for credit, the senior citizenís taxable income (for federal income tax purposes) the year prior to enrollment must not have exceeded $10,000.

There is no income requirement if the senior citizen wants to audit a course offered for credit or to enroll in a non-credit course. No more than three courses per semester may be taken on this basis, but there is no limit to the number of semesters a senior citizen may be enrolled. Instructors have the option of determining whether students may or may not take their courses on an audit basis. Those who have completed 75 percent of their degree requirements may enroll for courses at the same time as tuition-paying students, rather than waiting until regular registration is completed.

 

 

Classification as an In-State Student

TOP
 
Eligibility for in-state educational privileges, including in-state tuition rates, is governed by Section 23-7.4 et. seq. of the Code of Virginia.

Applicants for admission apply for in-state status by completing the Application for Virginia In-State Educational Privileges, and returning it with the admission application.

Currently enrolled students apply for changes in residency status through the Committee on Virginia Status, P.O. Box 400160, Charlottesville, VA 22904-4203. Applications must be received prior to the first day of class of the semester for which in-state privileges are sought.

Students classified as non-residents in current degree programs should contact the Committee on Virginia Status if they are considering applying for admission to other degree programs.

 

 

University Housing

TOP
 
The housing of students has been a prime consideration of the University since its founding. The University has two main goals in providing students with housing accommodations on Grounds. The first is to furnish students with a variety of housing arrangements at a reasonable cost. The second is to provide an environment in which each student may achieve the maximum realization of his or her potential intellectually, socially, and physically. Attributes such as self-discipline, concern for the rights of others, mental and social maturity, and respect for public and private property are expected to be fostered in group residence situations.

As a part of the University's orientation and advisory system, all students entering any of the undergraduate schools directly from secondary school are required to live in one of the residence houses during their first year. After the first year in residence a student who wishes to live in University housing must enter the reapplication process. Upperclass housing is available in residence halls and apartments and these spaces are awarded through the room selection process. On-Grounds housing is readily available.

Room Reservations After the entering undergraduate student has been admitted to the University and has returned the housing application to the accommodations office, space is reserved.

The application serves as the studentís housing agreement with the University. The student will be notified of the room assignment before the beginning of the session.

Room rent is charged by the semester and is due and payable upon receipt of a bill from Student Financial Services. All rental charges are subject to change.

All correspondence regarding University-owned accommodations for single students should be addressed to Accommodations, P.O. Box 400735, Charlottesville, VA 22904-4735: (434) 924-6873; Fax: (434) 924-3758; housing@virginia.edu.

Privately Owned Accommodations

TOP
 
Students wishing to obtain housing off Grounds should consult the local apartment locator services: www.brac.com or www.offgrounds.com.
 

 

Housing Regulations

TOP
 
All students entering any of the undergraduate schools directly from secondary school are required to live in one of the residence houses during their first two regular semesters at the University. Upon request, the Director of Accommodations may authorize exceptions to this residence requirement in cases involving students who will live at home with their families. Married or single parent students who will establish their homes at the University should also request exemption.

Upperclass and graduate students may live in University accommodations on Grounds, in fraternity or sorority houses, or in privately owned accommodations.

All rooms in University facilities are rented subject to the University Housing Terms and Conditions of Residence. This includes billing students for facility damages. When specific responsibility for damage cannot be determined, all costs are divided equally among the residents of that unit.

Students are strongly encouraged to obtain personal property insurance as the University is not responsible for damage to residentsí property.

The following University housing rental charges are for the 2003-2003 session and are subject to change. For current rate information, contact (434) 924-6873.

Dining Services and Facilities

TOP
 
Dining Services provides students numerous opportunities for meals and snacks from dining rooms, food courts, snack bars, convenience stores, and carts around Grounds. The dining rooms serve three meals on weekdays, as well as brunch and dinner on weekends, while the a la carte locations are open from early morning until late at night to offer a wide variety of dining options. Dining Services facilities are accessible to students with disabilities.

The University student identification card is the studentís entry into the dining rooms. It allows students to use the meals and Plus Dollars in their meal plans, and tells them the current balances. If the card is lost or stolen, the card office must be notified immediately at 924-4508 to deactivate the card. A separate card is issued to students in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies.

Information about Dining Services is mailed to students in early summer, after having received notification of admission to the University. If additional information is needed, please contact Dining Services, P.O. Box 400312, Charlottesville, VA 22904-4312, Attn: Board Plan Coordinator; (434) 982-5140; Fax: (434) 982-4995; dining@virginia.edu.

 

 

Meal Program Options

TOP
 
Please note that the following descriptions of the meal programs do not include all relevant terms and conditions of the contract. Please refer to the dining services brochure and the Annual Meal Plan Contract for complete details regarding meal programs, as well as nutrition counseling, non-meat menus, Meals to Go, and other options.

Believing that a well-balanced diet is essential for good health, the University requires that all first-year undergraduate students participate in either the Unlimited, the Plus 15, or the Plus 13 meal program during the first semester. Second-semester first-year students may also participate in the Plus 10 plan with $395 Plus Dollars.

The Unlimited Plan provides complete access to the dining rooms for meals or snacks during regular hours of operation. There are no limits to the number of meals that may be eaten during the day or week. This program permits the student to fit his or her meals into the most demanding schedule.

The Plus 15, Plus 13, Plus 10, and Upper-class 10 meal programs allow the student any 15, 13, or 10 of the available meals during the week.

The Semester Plans are available to upperclass students, provide either 100, 80, or 50 meals per semester, and are especially convenient for students who live off Grounds or who eat some meals in their residence.

Meal Plan Changes

TOP
 
Meal programs are purchased for the academic year and are priced to take into consideration that some meals will be missed. For this reason, refunds will not be made for missed meals. Students may exercise a ďsemester optionĒ by January 20 2003, which permits a change or cancellation of the meal program for the second semester. Semester options to cancel may not be exercised by Residential College students, or first year students.

Students may revise their meal plan choice twice during the year. All changes must be made by letter or by filling out an Intent to Change Form at the Dining Services Administrative Office.

Changes for fall semester must be requested by September 2, 2002.

Spring change requests must be made by January 20, 2003. Spring semester changes are accepted between December 1, 2002 through the January 20 deadline. They are not reflected on the bursarís bill until after final registration in January.

There is no fee for changing meal plans; however a $50 administrative fee is applied to all cancellations except for December graduation and Study Abroad students.

Meal plan contracts are annual contracts.
