Maintaining and Enhancing McIntire’s Position as a World Leader in Business Education – McIntire’s Undergraduate Tuition Model

The University of Virginia’s Board of Visitors has approved a plan enacting a two-step raise in differential tuition for undergraduate students who will enter McIntire in fall 2018. Under the Board-approved plan, in-state and out-of-state students entering the McIntire School for the 2018-2019 academic year will be assessed an additional $2,500 in differential tuition beyond McIntire’s current tuition. For the 2019-2020 academic year and beyond, another $2,500 will be added. Students in the Class of 2019 will not be charged the additional increase.

Differential tuition generates a necessary revenue stream critical to the maintenance and enhancement of McIntire’s position as a world leader in business education. The acclaimed and innovative undergraduate program is frequently recognized for its quality and value, having most recently been the only public institution to appear in the top five American undergraduate business programs by Poets&Quant s for Undergrads.

McIntire and the University remain committed to helping low- and middle-income students navigate the increasing costs of higher education, meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need. Students with demonstrated financial need should see no increase costs associated with pursuing a McIntire education. Also, beginning in the 2018-2019 academic school year, McIntire will invite incoming third-year applicants to apply for over $300,000 worth of scholarship funding. Scholarships will be awarded to students across the two-year period that they attend McIntire, with financial need as a significant consideration for selection. Consequently, despite the increase in total tuition cost, students receiving private funding through McIntire may ultimately pay less, as direct assistance from the School often reduces overall loan burden. The McIntire Office of Undergraduate Admission will inform applicants to the McIntire School of the application process and timeline.

Students with specific questions or concerns about tuition or the scholarship process are encouraged to contact the McIntire Office of Undergraduate Admission.
