Costs of Attendance

RICHMOND CAMPUS

Full-time students are eligible to apply for on-campus or subsidized housing. Housing rates vary according to size and location. Apartment and dormitory charges should be paid promptly on the first day of each month. A housing deposit of $50 for new students is required to hold the dorm room or apartment. A damage deposit equal to one month’s rent is required at time of move-in. A key deposit of $25 per key is collected at move-in.

On-campus housing charges are less than Richmond-area standard market rates and include basic utilities.

Dormitory rates range from $400 to $475 per month, depending on size and location.

Only expenses of the student can be used for determining federal loan eligibility. Higher allowances are generally used to determine institutional aid, especially for married students.
