2019-20 TUITION ASSISTANCE GRANT PROGRAM APPLICATION
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS
This document contains important information for all students participating in the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (VTAG) program administered by the
institutions and the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). It also provides details on the eligibility requirements, application deadlines,
and criteria for award distributions. Please read this document carefully.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION
VTAG is a non need-based grant for Virginia residents attending a participating Virginia private college or university. Funds for this grant have been
appropriated by the state legislature since 1973. While the maximum award is authorized each biennium, the amount is not guaranteed and can vary
annually. The exact amount of each academic years award is determined by the available funding and the total number of eligible applicants. If funding
is insucient to fully award all students, it is possible that the spring award will be adjusted and some students will receive no award. The college nancial
aid oce will have the most current information about the expected maximum award. See below for the categories and prioritization of awards.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS
Students must meet all the eligibility requirements set forth by the General Assembly, Sections 23.1-628 through 635 of the Code of Virginia and in the
VTAG regulations, 8 VAC 40-71. All requirements are not specied in this application. The basic eligibility requirements are:
Domiciled resident of Virginia for at least one year prior to receiving VTAG or dependent of certain military personnel.
[A student who is in Virginia primarily to attend college is not considered to be a domiciled resident.]
Enrolled as a full-time student at an eligible institution in an eligible degree program.
[For specics on “full-time” or “eligible degree program,” please contact your institution’s nancial aid oce.]
A completed VTAG application submitted to your institution’s nancial aid oce.
APPLICATION DEADLINES AND AWARD DISTRIBUTION CRITERIA
Conditions for reduction of the award amount and eligibility are described in program regulations. If funds are not sucient to make full VTAG awards to
all eligible students, a priority system is used to determine the size of the awards. Students in the rst categories must receive full funding before subse-
quent categories can be considered; however, categories 1 and 2 are combined and will receive the same award amount.
Priority System:
Category 1: Returning students who received a VTAG award in the previous fiscal year. This category includes transfer students who received
a VTAG award in the previous fiscal year at another institution.
Category 2: New and re-admit students who are eligible for fall or fall and spring term awards and who apply for the VTAG program by July
31, 2019. This category also includes returning and transfer students determined to be eligible in the previous fiscal year, but not awarded.
Category 3: New and re-admit students who are eligible for fall or fall and spring term awards and who apply for the VTAG program between
and including August 1 and September 14, 2019.
Category 4: All students eligible for spring term awards only (except those who received the award in the previous fiscal year), and who
apply by December 1, 2019.
After the March verication of actual spring term enrollments, SCHEV will determine the nal award amounts for category 1 and 2 applicants.
If necessary, the spring amount will be adjusted. Awards, if any, for category 3 and 4 applicants cannot be determined until mid-spring.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Total support cannot exceed two years for an associate program, no more than four years for undergraduate programs, and no more than three years for
all post-undergraduate programs except for medicine and pharmacy, which allow a maximum of four years. Recipients of the awards have the responsi-
bility to notify, in writing, the institutions they attend of any name or permanent address changes.
The institutions and SCHEV do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, or disability when making award decisions
or reviewing appeals; any information requested for these items is for statistical purposes only.
Public Law 93-579, referred to as the Federal Privacy Act, requires that any federal, state, or local agency that requests an individual to disclose his Social
Security number inform the individual by which statutory or other authority the number is solicited, whether that disclosure is mandatory or voluntary,
and what uses could be made of it. SCHEV, as required by published regulations, requests each applicant for its student aid programs to submit a Social
Security number on a voluntary basis. The Council uses a student’s Social Security number for unique identication purposes in the application and
reporting processes.
