State Council of Higher Education for Virginia
This award waives the cost of tuition and fees at participating Virginia public institutions.
The number of awards offered varies annually and is dependent on the number of qualified applicants.
Eligible senior citizens may take courses at participating Virginia Public Institutions without paying tuition or required fees, except for course materials, under certain conditions. If the senior citizen has taxable income of not more than $15,000 in the preceding year, the individual may take a course for academic credit free of tuition and fees, except for fees established for the purpose of paying for course materials, such as laboratory fees. A senior citizen, regardless of income level, may audit a course that is given for academic credit or take a noncredit course free of tuition and fees, except for fees established for the purpose of paying for course materials, such as laboratory fees. Each participating institution will determine all aspects of the student's eligibility. Students should contact their institution for additional details.
