Types of Aid

University of Virginia students who receive financial aid must reapply each year. Undergraduate students who complete the FAFSA and CSS Profile, as well as meet enrollment and satisfactory academic progress standards, and who apply on time are considered for all forms of financial aid, including Federal and University scholarships, grants, and loans. For more information, please click a type of aid in the left menu.

There is some jargon when it comes to financial aid, and it can be confusing at times.  We've provided a glossary of some of the more common financial aid terms to help you out. Follow this link for a Spanish-language version of the glossary, and follow this link for a Simplified Chinese version of the glossary.


Non Need-based Financial Aid

Students who wish to apply for non-need based financial aid should file the FAFSA. Our office will then offer non-need based loans to their SIS account.
