The Board of Visitors is committed to making VCU a place where inclusion powers innovation so that all students succeed. The board works to ensure that academic, research, community and financial goals are met and that students, faculty, staff and alumni can explore, create, learn and serve."

– H. Benson Dendy III, Rector

VCU officials have presented the proposed fiscal year 2022-2023 (July 1, 2022 thru June 30, 2023) tuition and fees to the Board of Visitors. The board reviewed tuition projections for the 2022-2023 academic year, ranging from 3 percent to 6 percent for undergraduate students, along with a 3 percent to 6 percent tuition increase for graduate students. The board is considering the administration's recommendation of 3% to 6% for Undergraduate and Graduate, 2% for Medicine First Professional, 2% for Pharmacy First Professional and 0% for Dentistry First Professional.

Under the recommended range, typical in-state undergraduate students enrolled in 15 credits per semester would pay $15,641 at 3 percent to $16,017 at a 6 percent increase in tuition and mandatory fees in the 2022-23 academic year, an increase of $523 to $899. Out-of-state undergraduate students’ tuition and mandatory fees would be set at $37,587 to $38,573, an increase of $1,131 to 2,117. The recommendation for total mandatory fees is an increase of $145 from $3,024 to $3,169 for residents and a $145 increase from $3,714 to $3,859 for nonresidents.
