UVA to freeze undergraduate tuition for next academic year

Tuition for undergraduate study at the University of Virginia for the next academic year will remain the same as the current year, according to UVA Today and the Cavalier Daily.  President Jim Ryan told the Board of Visitors that UVA has lost a lot of revenues and had a lot of unexpected costs due to the pandemic that may total up to $140 million. 

“If there were ever a year not to raise undergraduate tuition it is also this year given the pandemic and the financial hardship facing a lot of our our students and their families,” Ryan said. 

Following the vote from the Board of Visitors, graduate tuition will increase by up to 6.4 percent and fees will increased by $114 in part to help support the cost of the new student wellness center. Room and board will increase by 2.3 percent and 2.7 percent respectively.
