Financial Aid Information
Departmental Financial Aid The Graduate School of Commerce offers a range of financial aid for graduate students,
including fellowships based on need, academic merit, and GMAT scores. Research assistantships are also offered, which entail
working a pre-determined number of hours each semester for a faculty member. Teaching assistantships, awarded based on academic
merit and an interview, offer tuition remission, a discount on books, and a stipend. Please note: Due to the cohort driven,
executive format of the McIntire Graduate Programs, the School does not honor the University of Virginia Tuition Waiver program
for University employees.
Loans In addition to the fellowships and assistantships, prospective students may apply for financial assistance through the
Office of Financial Aid to Students. All awards from federal loan or employment funds are need- based. To apply for assistance, submit a
University financial aid application to the Office of Financial Aid to Students by March 31. For further information or applications,
contact the Office of Financial Aid to Students, P.O. Box 9021, University of
Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia 22906, (434) 982-6000.
Veterans' Benefits The Office of the University Registrar is the
University liaison with the Veterans Administration in
matters concerning educational benefits available to veterans and war orphans under the provisions of Chapters 34 and 35 of Title 38
USC (Cold War G.I. Bill). This office provides information and furnishes application forms on request. Please address inquiries
regarding educational benefits available through the Veterans Administration to the Registrar's Office, Carruthers Hall, (434) 924-4138.
Tuition Waiver Program Due to the cohort driven executive format of the MS degree programs, tuition waiver programs are not
applicable to the Graduate School of Commerce.
