RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Students at two of Virginia’s largest universities will have to pay more this upcoming school year.
The Executive Committees of the Board of Visitors at Virginia Tech and Radford University have both voted to increase tuition and mandatory fees for the 2022-2023 school year.
The tuition increase at Virginia Tech will be 3% for both in-state and out-of-state students in both undergraduate and graduate programs. However, there will be a one-time scholarship for all in-state undergraduate students which will fully offset the increase.
