Admissions & Aid



The NSF S-STEM Program at UVa-Wise supports low-income and academically talented students majoring in Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, or Environmental Sciences in the Department of Natural Sciences at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise.


UVa-Wise offers students a high-caliber liberal arts education, a prestigious University of Virginia degree, and an idyllic rural learning environment complete with small classes, close-knit communities, and one-on-one faculty attention.


Note that we didn’t mention debt. That’s because our graduates have some of the lowest in the country.
