2016 Summer Session Fees  

NOTICE:  Tuition and fees are based upon appropriations by the General Assembly. These appropriations are subject to state revenue collections and may be reduced or increased by the Governor. The VMI Board of Visitors approves tuition and fees at their May meeting applicable to the following summer and regular sessions, but reserves the right to adjust tuition and fees at any time during the year. Students shall be dismissed from the Summer Session (and, in the case of cadets, from the Institute) for failure to pay tuition and fees or any other financial obligation to the Institute as required. In addition, the Institute reserves the right to hold grades, credits, transcripts, and diplomas until all financial obligations to the Institute have been satisfied.

All fees for the first session must be paid by 3:00 p.m. on May 18th. All fees for the second session must be paid by 3:00 p.m. on June 24th.

VMI will not bill parents or students. VMI accepts payment for Summer Session tuition and fees by cash, check, E-check, or credit card (MasterCard, Discovery, and American Express only). If a credit card is used a 2.25% convenience fee will be assessed.
