Emory & Henry College administers the VTAG program for residents of the Commonwealth of Virginia who attend Emory & Henry College. This program is available to students attending certain private colleges in Virginia such as Emory & Henry.
The VTAG is awarded solely on the basis of Virginia residency and applies only toward full-time tuition. Students normally must be Virginia residents for a minimum of one year to qualify; however, for dependent students residency is based on the residency of their parent(s). Students should apply by July 31 for fall funding. The VTAG application may be downloaded or requested from the CSA Office. Virginia Tuition Assistance Grants will be applied to tuition charges before any Emory & Henry institutional aid is applied.
Award amounts are estimated and subject to change during the academic year by the State Council for Higher Education in Virginia based on annual budget levels and the number of eligible students statewide during that academic year. Any budget shortfalls that arise at the state level will be passed to the student. Students should continue to apply between July 31 and December 1, but funding is not guaranteed by SCHEV.
Students are limited to eight semesters of the VTAG award as an undergraduate student. Any student withdrawing before the census date of a term will lose VTAG funding, but retain eligibility for future terms. Any student withdrawing after the census date will receive a prorated amount of VTAG for that term, but loses a semester of eligibility regardless of amount.
