Financial Aid

We're committed to making education affordable and accessible to all students.

Our tuition plan is different from what you're likely to find at other online universities. Here, the tuition you pay will stay the same during your journey, and there are no fees. 

To help you cover your costs, a variety of scholarships, grants, loans and part-time work study are available. The University also accepts transfer credits and credit by exam, which help reduce the number of credit hours you need to take to graduate.

Complete your FAFSA

When applying for most types of federal and state funds, students must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The preferred method to complete this application is electronically by visiting www.fafsa.ed.gov. Please ensure to include the VSU school code (001599) prior to submitting the application.

If you will be attending FALL 2022, SPRING 2023, and/or SUMMER 2023 be sure to complete the 2022/2023 FAFSA.
