Estimated Undergraduate Cost of Attendance, 2016-2017

Each year Student Financial Services establishes standard estimates to help families determine their financial needs for the year, and for financial aid awarding purposes. This page contains estimates of the Cost of Attendance for one year (Fall and Spring semesters) at the University of Virginia, including tuition and fees, room, board, personal expenses and travel. To see a breakout of the Comprehensive Fee fee components for 2016-2017, please click here.

Upon request, a student's budget may be increased to cover the cost of health insurance.  The allowable amount for 2016-17 is $2,735.

The following information pertains to undergradute students only. For estimated Costs of Attendance for graduate students, please click here.

 

Undergraduate Living Expenses

The following estimated expenses apply to students in any undergraduate program. They are listed as "Living Expenses" in the subsequent estimated Cost of Attendance tables for each program. Please note that independent undergraduate student budgets differ by the inclusion of a health insurance amount for the year.

The personal expenses estimates shown below reflect modest and restrained expense allowances for University of Virginia students.  Some students will spend more than the estimated amounts while others will spend less, depending on individual lifestyles and circumstances.  Eligibility for financial aid, however, is based on the standard estimated allowance, not on individual preferences and spending habits.
