Undergraduate Cost of Attendance (COA)


The Cost-of-Attendance Budget represents the estimated cost to attend Virginia Tech for one academic year.

The tuition, fees, and room and board components of the estimated cost of attendance represent the average amount of charges that will reflect on a student’s billing statement. There can be differences between your actual charges and these estimates based on fees specific to certain colleges or majors and individual choices of residence hall, meal plan, and lab fees required for certain courses. 

The books and supplies, transportation, and personal components of the estimated cost of attendance are variable, out-of-pocket expenses that are not included on the student’s billing statement. These charges will vary by student. Loan fees are the average amount of loan fees incurred by all students for Federal Direct Loan funds during the previous academic year.
