<p>Affordability is a top priority at Virginia Wesleyan University. VWU offers a multi-faceted plan of affordability that includes freezing tuition for the fifth consecutive year, a renewable merit scholarship program, an expanded <a href="https://www.vwu.edu/campus-life/work-and-learn/&quot; target="_blank">Work &amp; Learn Program</a> for student employment, and affordable out-of-semester 12-month course options.</p>

<p>We offer aid through a variety of means such as merit scholarships, need-based grants, non need-based grants, state and federal funds, and the Visit and FAFSA grants. We know finances are a crucial part of the college decision, so we encourage prospective students and families to connect one-on-one with a financial aid counselor to learn more about the financial aid process, understand your award package, request changes to your award, and much more. </p>
