The University of Virginia Board of Visitors will consider 2021-22 tuition and fees for UVA and UVA’s College at Wise during a March 5 meeting, with a workshop and public comment period scheduled for Feb. 17 to gather feedback.

The board will consider a proposal to increase undergraduate tuition within a range of zero to 3.1%. The proposal assumes that unrestricted state appropriations will remain at essentially the same level specified in the 2020-22 Appropriation Act. If the General Assembly makes changes to UVA’s appropriation, adjustments to tuition rates may be proposed this summer.

The board previously approved increases to some fees, including a mandatory $75 non-Education & General fee associated with the expansion of Student Health and Wellness Services and a 1.5% increase in mandatory non-Education & General fees to meet operating cost increases.

The Feb. 17 workshop and public comment will be held over Zoom from noon to 1 p.m. to solicit feedback for the March meeting. Individuals may provide comments to the board on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is open; those who wish to speak at the meeting must register by emailing and including their name, contact information and affiliation with the University or community. Registered speakers will receive a Zoom link on the day of the meeting.

Written comments concerning tuition and fees will also be accepted and may be submitted via email to
