Fees

Do not remit fees with the application. You will be billed prior to Registration Day. VMI accepts payment for tuition and fees by cash, check, E-check, or credit card (MasterCard, Discovery, and American Express only). If a credit card is used, a 2.25% convenience fee will be assessed.

The cost of books varies according to the course and instructor, but on the average the cost for books for the summer program is approximately $150.00. An estimate for weekend meals in Lexington is $30 per weekend. Students who bring cars on the VMI Post will be required to pay a vehicle registration fee of $40.
