RICHMOND —Tuition and mandatory fees for academic year 2019-20 at Virginia’s public higher education institutions remain unchanged from last year for the majority of in-state undergraduate students as a result of additional state investment, according to a new report from the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). Institutions were able to curtail tuition increases because of a significant state investment in a Tuition Moderation Fund and related general fund increases. The last time institutions did not increase tuition and mandatory Educational & General (E&G) fees for in-state undergraduate students occurred nearly 20 years ago, which also followed action by the General Assembly and the Governor.

The 2019-20 Tuition and Fees Report, a summary and downloadable charts are available at www.schev.edu/2019TutitionandFeesReport.


Media resources — including links to downloadable high-resolution photos and logos, news advisories and releases — are available at www.schev.edu/media.

The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia is the state’s coordinating agency for higher education.
