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.

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

 

Graduate Living Expenses

The following estimated expenses apply to students in any graduate program. They are listed as "Living Expenses" in the subsequent estimated Cost of Attendance tables for each program. 

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.
