Ensuring an Excellent Education is Affordable
We were founded as a public university, open to all who have the talent and ability to move society forward. For that reason, we are committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated need for every admitted student. In fact, UVA is one of only two public universities in the nation to offer both a need-blind admission process and a commitment to cover 100% of a student’s demonstrated financial need—a commitment that goes back to the reasons we were founded.
