Enrollment & Aid

At Virginia Wesleyan University, we are proud to be a liberal arts institution. Our faculty are outstanding. Our classes are small. And regardless of major, students learn to think creatively, solve problems effectively, and communicate clearly—desirable skills sought by employers and graduate school admission committees.

Financial Aid

Virginia Wesleyan believes that no student should be denied the opportunity to attend because of limited financial resources. VWU offers a multi-faceted plan of affordability that includes freezing tuition, a renewable merit scholarship program, an expanded Work & Learn Program for student employment, and affordable out-of-semester 12-month course options.
