Welcome!

Welcome to the Office of University Scholarships and Financial Aid (USFA) web site!  Our web site is a good source of information that will guide you through the financial aid process.

FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act)

We will not release your financial aid or billing information to anyone, including your parents, without a FERPA pass code.  After you have accepted the admissions offer, you may set up this code by logging in to the Hokie Spa and selecting "FERPA."

Use our Financial Aid Estimator to help you estimate your eligibility.

Federal Work Study (FWS) is a program that provides part-time employment opportunities to eligible students to help meet the cost of education.

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships and Fellowships are managed by the Graduate School and can be in support of general administrative duties, teaching assignments, or research projects

Grants are awarded based on the student's financial need. Like scholarships, grants do not have to be repaid.

Virginia Tech offers several types of loans from the federal government based on the financial need of the student.

Scholarships are similar to grants but they are awarded based on student qualifications and usually include an application process. Scholarships do not have to be repaid. 

Waivers

Waivers are similar to grants in that they do not have to be repaid, however, they can only be applied to Virginia Tech tuition and fees charges
