Estimated Graduate Cost of Attendance

2022-2023 Academic Year

Graduate Living Expenses

The following estimated expenses apply to students in any graduate program. The living expenses estimates used in the cost of attendance 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.

Student Health Insurance: All students at the University of Virginia who are charged the comprehensive fee with their tuition are required to have health insurance that is at least comparable to the plan offered by the University. If a student’s health insurance does not meet the comparable plan criteria, the student will automatically be enrolled in the UVA student health plan and charged the premium. Upon request, a student's budget may be increased to cover the cost of health insurance. 

The Aetna Student Health Plan will provide coverage for all subscribers from August 1, 2022 until July 31, 2023. The annual cost of the plan is $3,309.
