BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Virginia Tech tuition is going up, but there is some relief for students from the Commonwealth.

The executive committee of the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors approved tuition and fees in Richmond Tuesday.

Committee members okayed a three-percent tuition increase for all undergraduate and graduate students.

But to continue to keep tuition affordable for families in Virginia, there is some good news.

“What we’ve also decided to do is to create a one-time, one-year scholarship that will be three percent of tuition, so essentially, Virginia in-state undergraduate students will have no tuition increase for next year,” said Mark Owczarski, Assistant Vice President of University Relations.

After adding tuition, mandatory fees and room and board costs, the total cost for next academic year for a Virginia undergraduate student living on campus will be around $25,000 after the one-time tuition mitigation scholarship.
