About VCU’s Office of Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid provides a variety of services to help students afford higher education via grants, scholarships, work-study employment and loans. The Office of Financial Aid administers and distributes funds from federal, state, institutional and private sources. One-on-one appointments are available to students, their parents, faculty and staff. Financial aid funds are applied first to the student’s university bill. Refunds are generated when financial aid exceeds university charges.

VCU uses all available funds to help students gain access to a college education. Eligibility for financial aid varies depending on a student’s academic and financial circumstances. In most cases, each student will qualify for some form of financial assistance.
