RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Starting next year, Virginia families that
earn $60,000 a year or less will be eligible for free room, board and
tuition at the University of Richmond. Right now that program is only
available to students whose families earn $40,000 a year or less.
“We know that many families are seeking to secure a quality college
education for their children within a challenging economic environment,”
Nanci Tessier, vice president for enrollment management, said in a
statement. “By broadening the income parameters of this program, we can
expand the reach of the University of Richmond to become a destination
for more talented students from middle-class Virginian families.”
Undergraduate students pay $55,000 a year to attend Richmond, according to the university’s website. Tuition is $45,000 with room and board making up the additional $10,000.
University spokesman Brian Eckert said the school does not consider a
potential student’s ability to pay when deciding whether or not that
student should be admitted. He said once a student is accepted, the
university works with the student to help meet the financial need.
