VIU Student Family Discount


Virginia International University offers a 5% tuition discount per semester for immediate family members studying concurrently and on a full-time basis at VIU. The discount is valid as long as the immediate family members (which are defined as parents, children, brothers, sisters, and spouses) are enrolled and paying tuition. The discount is applied to the tuition of both students.

The students must be enrolled on a full-time basis to be eligible for this discount. A student is considered to be full-time when enrolled as follows: 20 hours in the ESL program, 12 credits in an undergraduate degree or certificate program, 9 credit hours in a graduate degree or certificate program, or a combination of these as considered full-time by the Registrar’s Office. This discount will also apply to the tuition charged for additional enrolled courses in the same semester.


The deadline to apply for this discount is the last day of add/drop in every semester. Applications received after this deadline will be considered for the next semester.

To be considered for this discount, the student(s) must complete the Application for Family Discount form and submit it, along with proof of relationship as immediate family, to the Accounting Office for approval.
