Virginia International University offers several creative solutions to assist students in planning for the challenges involved with paying for their education. Federal financial aid is one of the solutions which is granted from the U.S. Department of Education. It helps eligible students pay for higher education expenses and it can be used to cover expenses such as tuition, fees, room and board, books, school supplies, and transportation. The Office of Financial Aid is available to counsel prospective and current students on the types of aid available and to help them through the application and funding process.
In order to be eligible to receive federal financial aid at Virginia International University, both new and currently enrolled students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and comply with all federal, state, and VIU regulations and policies regarding financial aid. Virginia International University Federal Title IV School code for the FAFSA is 041440. Priority consideration for all sources of financial aid is given to those students whose financial aid applications are on file with the Financial Aid Office by the deadline of that given semester/session. To meet this priority filing date, students should file the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1st, of each year. The FAFSA is filed online at www.fafsa.gov.
