Affording UVA
“At first I didn't think that UVA was within reach, but there were a lot of different resources and people that helped me.”

By the Numbers

Financial Aid

At UVA, we believe the accessibility and affordability of a quality education should be based on a student’s academic performance, talent and character – not on their ability to pay.

  • We help talented students pursue their dreams. Students are offered admission based on their intellect, academic achievements and extracurricular involvement, regardless of their financial situation or ability to pay.
  • We meet 100% of financial need. UVA meets the demonstrated financial need for all in-state and out-of-state students applying by the annual March 1st deadline, through a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study and need-based loans.
  • Manageable loans. UVA is committed to limiting need-based loans for students with financial need, so they graduate with less debt.
