  • Virginia Alternative State Aid Applications 
    (VASA)

    Who should complete the VASA application? 

    Virginians who are nonimmigrants, undocumented, have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status or are otherwise ineligible to file the FAFSA and would like to be considered for state financial aid.

    Additional VASA eligibility requirements can be found here: https://schev.edu/index/tuition-aid/vasa/

    The VASA application provides access only to state and to some institutional financial aid programs. The VASA application does not provide access to federal student aid.

    In-State Tuition Information
    With the goal of being known as "America's Most Veteran-Friendly State," Virginia provides many unique state benefits to supplement and expand on federal benefits for military families. The information here is designed to help military personnel and their families understand and utilize the educational benefits and resources available in the Commonwealth. In most cases, the student's point of contact for these financial benefits is the institution's domicile or admissions office.
