Tuition & Financial Aid

Earning a degree costs money. The School of Professional & Continuing Studies offers a valuable University of Richmond education at competitive rates for graduate studies, undergraduate studies, and professional development for educators.

Tuition, Fees and Refunds

Parking permits are inexpensive ($60 per year) and allow parking in several convenient lots on campus. Many faculty and staff lots are open for commuter parking after 6:00 p.m. on weekdays, increasing the number of lots available for Professional & Continuing Studies students.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

Degree-seeking students may qualify for financial aid and/or SPCS scholarships and can utilize the University of Richmond’s Financial Aid Office. Merit-based scholarships, need-based aid, Virginia Tuition Assistant Grant (VTAG) and loans are some of the resources available to qualified applicants. And the University’s installment plan allows you to spread tuition payments over several months.

Note: The website of the University Controller provides the University’s authoritative schedule of fees and refunds in addition to information about payment options and our installment payment plan.
