Estimated Undergraduate Cost of Attendance

2021-2022 Academic Year

Follow this link to access the Estimated Undergraduate Cost of Attendance for 2020-2021

On April 13, 2021, the University's Board of Visitors approved tuition and fees rates for the 2021-2022 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. 

For students new to the Aetna Student Health Plan, the rate is $3,148 for coverage from August 1, 2021 until July 31, 2022.  For students who currently have coverage from last year's plan that runs through August 14, 2021, the new year rate is $3,027 for coverage from August 15, 2021 until July 31, 2022. Starting with the 2022-2023 academic year, the plan will provide coverage for all subscribers from August 1, 2022 until July 31, 2023.

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.
