UVa. Board Approves Increasing Tuition Rates

April 23, 2014

The University of Virginia Board of Visitors on Wednesday approved undergraduate tuition rates for the 2014-15 academic year.

Tuition and all mandatory fees for first-year undergraduate Virginia residents entering in August will increase by 4.3 percent, while the rate for out-of-state students is increasing by 5.9 percent.

The total cost of attendance for a first-year Virginia resident – which includes tuition and fees, room and board, and estimated expenses for books and travel expenditures – will increase by $949 to $27,417.

Revenue from the new rates will be used for compensating faculty and staff, as well as funding priorities of the Cornerstone Plan.

The Board of Visitors also approved 2014-15 rates for the University of Virginia’s College at Wise. Tuition and fees for in-state first-year students at UVa.-Wise will increase by 4.2 percent, while out-of-state rates will increase by 4 percent.

The school is currently in a code red while law enforcement investigates the report of a suspicious person in the immediate area. All students and staff are safe.
