Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

2.41 Average Rating
Virginia Western has great tuition prices, and I feel it has been worth it in order to work towards getting my Associates Degree. I think it is very reasonable and great for people who are not able to afford the outrageous prices at other universities.
Stephanie from Roanoke, VA
Definatley. So far I've only had one class that I felt as though I wasn't getting my money's worth and that was a Psycology class. I'm sure the rest of the Psy program has good teachers, I must've just gotten a bad one. But in all my Comm Design classes, I feel as though I'm getting more than what I paid for. Not only do the professors teach you what you need to know for the class, but they're out there making money doing what they're teaching you, so they can tell you exactly what it's like.
Chelsea from Roanoke, VA
From quality to services offered to class size, it can't be beat!
Tara from Troutville, VA
Really affordable! And Payment plans!
David from Vinton, VA
haven't been to this school, but it already seems to me like a very good idea. It sounds like it's basically college without all the financial upset.
