Room and Board are required since all cadets live in barracks and are provided 21 meals per week.

The Auxiliary Fee covers the cadet’s share of the costs of medical services, cadet facilities and activities, athletics, and other services.

The Quartermaster Charge covers haircuts and the issuing, tailoring, laundering, and pressing of uniforms. Cadet uniforms are state property and must be returned to the Institute. Qualified cadets enrolled or under contract in the ROTC program receive a uniform allowance directly from the Federal Government which helps defray the cost of cadet uniforms.

The Security Deposit covers property damages, lost property, and unpaid obligations to VMI. The deposit shall equal $200 at the beginning of each academic year; accordingly, any shortfall shall be billed to the cadet at the beginning of each year. VMI returns this deposit, less any deductions for damages or unpaid obligations and without interest, upon the graduation of the cadet or the termination of the cadetship. This deposit is not the same as the Reservation Fee.

A LATE FEE of $100 or 10% of the unpaid balance, if less, will be assessed for failure to pay tuition and fees as required.

OTHER COSTS payable by the cadet include textbooks, supplies, automobile registration, and non-issue clothing. The cadet must pay for such items with cash, check, or bank credit card at the time of purchase.

Cadets will be dismissed from the Institute for failure to pay tuition and fees or any other financial obligation to the Institute as required. In addition, the Institute reserves the right to hold grades, credits, transcripts and diplomas until all financial obligations to the Institute are satisfied. Cadets must satisfy all financial obligations to the Institute for the past semesters or terms before they will be allowed to register for any succeeding semester or term.
