Types of Aid

University of Virginia students who receive financial aid must reapply each year. Undergraduate students who complete the FAFSA and University Financial Aid Application (in SIS), as well as meet enrollment and satisfactory academic progress standards, are considered for many forms of financial aid, including Federal and University scholarships, grants, and loans.

Non Need-based Financial Aid

Students who wish to apply for non-need based financial aid must first file the FAFSA. In addition to being considered for Pell Grants, Direct Unsubsidized Loans, and Direct PLUS (Parent PLUS) loans, they may also be considered for certain merit scholarships. In general, however, merit scholarships are not administered by Student Financial Services.
