Financial Aid

Virginia Military Institute considers its financial aid program as an investment in cadets and their futures. The Financial Aid Office is committed to helping determine the best options to pay for education. We work to find solutions to provide assistance to cadets who without such aid would be unable to attend and to provide aid to cadets with superior academic abilities.

We are here to help find the best solution for you, your situation, and your needs.  If you can't find what you're looking for, you can always contact us for assistance.
