Tuition & Costs

For more than a decade, U.S. News and World Report has named UVa-Wise among the top three public national liberal arts colleges whose students graduate with a low average student loan debt.

Our new “State of the ARC” tuition program offers in-state tuition for all students living within the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) territory—from New York to Mississippi. We’re also proud to offer competitive financial aid offers for anyone with demonstrated financial need. Making college more affordable for more students is all a part of our commitment to uplift our region through the power of education.
