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.

In accordance with the Senior Citizens Higher Education Act of 1974, qualifying senior citizens are not required to pay tuition.
