Costs, Aid, Scholarships

Tuition and Fees are just a starting point. Visit the Office of Financial Aid to see ways those costs may be lowered. 

You’ll find information about loans, grants, cadet employment opportunities, and scholarships, and you’ll find a net price calculator that will help you evaluate your family’s financial situation and give you an estimate of what the actual annual cost of VMI may be.
