2021-22 Tuition and Fees Report

SCHEV Report: Most public colleges and universities hold down tuition and fees again in 2021-22

Tuition and mandatory fees for academic year 2021-22 at Virginia’s public higher education institutions remain largely unchanged from last year for the majority of in-state undergraduate students as a result of institutions’ boards being more sensitive to the economic status of students and parents resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, according to the annual Tuition & Fees Report from the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV).

"Leaders across higher education are breathing a collective sigh of relief this summer after arguably the most challenging year of their careers during the pandemic. With high vaccination rates, plummeting COVID cases and deaths, and near-full re-openings across the states, U.S. higher education seems poised to rebound this coming academic year. But despite the generally optimistic outlook relative to a receding pandemic, there remain many reasons why this coming year might actually be harder on higher ed than the past year,"  reports Forbes.

Workforce Credential Grant works

Editorial: Virginia’s New Economy Workforce Credential Grant Program is proving its worth

"Five years ago, state lawmakers acted in bipartisan fashion to help workers find affordable pathways to good paying, high-demand jobs, and employers to find the skilled pool of talent that they need for these positions. In a public health crisis, Virginia’s New Economy Workforce Credential Grant Program is paying off," writes the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
