Virginia Wesleyan Freezes Tuition for 2020-21
Virginia Wesleyan University has frozen tuition for the third straight year. Full-time students will pay the same rate of tuition in the 2020-21 academic year as they have the past two years, thanks to another freeze on tuition approved by the Board of Trustees, said VWU President Scott D. Miller.

"We recognize that higher education is a substantial investment for students and their families," Dr. Miller said. "At their recent fall meeting, our Trustees reaffirmed the importance of affordability and access to quality higher education. It is essential for us to work with our students and their families to make that possible."

Virginia Wesleyan has adopted a wide variety of measures to remain affordable and financially support students. In addition to capping tuition and fees at their current level for three years in a row, the University has established an on-campus student work program; launched the Batten Honors College, which fully or partially funds 40 new academically talented students each year; widened access to early- and dual-enrollment programs; made January term affordable; added online summer courses and expanded institutional grants and scholarshipsMore
