VMI cadet deposits from the regular session will apply to the summer session and are refundable upon graduation or termination of the cadetship.

Tuition and fees are 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 consequently reserves the right to adjust tuition and fees 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 tution 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.  

The cost of books varies according to the course and instructor, but on the average the cost for books for the summer program is approximately $150.00. An estimate for weekend meals in Lexington is $30 per weekend. Students who bring cars on the VMI Post will be required to pay a vehicle registration fee of $40.

Do not remit fees with the application. You will be billed prior to Registration Day (June 29).
