Financial Aid

Virginia Military Institute considers its financial aid program an investment in its cadets' futures and works to provide assistance to students who without such aid would be unable to attend and provide aid to cadets with superior academic abilities.

Affording VMI

VMI is one of just a handful of colleges that made the cut for Money Magazine’s “The 15 Colleges Where Studying Liberal Arts Pays Big.”

At VMI we make your education dollars go further. For students at VMI who receive financial aid, the average return on investment for Humanities BAs is $649,000 over 20 years after graduation.

Types of Aid

Calculate Net Price

The Net Price Calculator measures the financial strength of your family and uses other facts you provide to estimate the amount of grants, scholarships and other financial aid that is likely to be available to you.

Your "net price" is the difference between that amount and the cost of attendance.
