Estimated Undergraduate Cost of Attendance

2022-2023 Academic Year

On December 10, 2021, the University's Board of Visitors approved tuition and fees rates for the 2022-2023 academic year. The cost of attendance information below pertains to undergraduate students only.

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 only) at the University of Virginia, including tuition and fees, housing, dining, books and supplies, personal expenses, and travel. All values are in US dollars.

The information on this page assumes a student who is living in Charlottesville and is being charged the full comprehensive fee.

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.

Coverage in the UVA student health plan runs from August 1, 2022 until July 31, 2023. The annual rate for the 2022-2023 academic year is $3,309. 

Please note that if you leave the University for any reason and return in a later semester, you will be subject to the tuition and fee rates established by the Board of Visitors for the academic year in which you return, based upon your academic level upon your return. Your school of enrollment can confirm your academic level at the time of your return to the University.

Undergraduate Living Expenses

The following estimated expenses apply to students in any undergraduate program. They are listed as "Additional Categories" 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 choices and circumstances.  Eligibility for financial aid, however, is based on the standard estimated allowance, not on individual preferences and spending habits.
