Virginia School Personnel
(A reduced tuition rate for school personnel employed full-time in grades K-12 in Virginia Schools)

The reduced tuition rate is applicable only to the in-state portion of tuition. For example, Virginia School Personnel who reside outside of Virginia would receive the reduced tuition rate on the in-state portion of the tuition and the student would be responsible for the full amount of the additional out-of-state tuition charge.

To receive the Virginia School Personnel reduced tuition rate, please
complete the form on the Graduate School's website. Full-time employment in a Virginia school must be verified by the school system and the form returned to the Graduate School for processing. Submission of the form is required each academic year to receive the reduced tuition rate (Fall Semester through Summer sessions).
