The UMW Board of Visitors has set tuition and fees for the 2024-25 academic year.

The University of Mary Washington Board of Visitors has set tuition and fees for the 2024-25 academic year, as approved at their quarterly meeting in April.

Tuition will increase by 2% for undergraduate and graduate students. The auxiliary comprehensive fee at UMW will increase by 3%. This decision follows several years of keeping undergraduate in-state tuition flat, but a small increase, still below the rate of inflation, is needed to support state-mandated compensation actions for faculty and staff and the continued success of academic programs and the campus experience.

UMW stands out among Virginia schools, known for smaller class sizes, dedicated faculty who work side- by-side with students, and a smaller price point that still encompasses this personalized approach.  Starting this fall, UMW will offer a tuition promise for Pell-eligible Virginia students, closing any gap in tuition funding for in-state students who qualify for Federal Pell Grants. Pell-eligibility is determined when students and their families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). UMW encourages families with an annual gross income (AGI) of $100,000 or less to complete the application process and add UMW to their list as an affordable option. Read more.
