Virginia Guaranteed Assistance Program

The purpose of the Virginia Guaranteed Assistance Program (VGAP) is to provide an incentive to financially needy students now attending elementary and secondary school in Virginia to raise their expectations and their academic performance and to consider higher education an achievable objective in their future. The law requires that the awards to undergraduates be proportional to need so that the students with the greatest need receive the largest awards.


In order to be eligible for an award, a student must:
1. Be admitted into a Virginia public two or four year college or university;
2. Be enrolled full-time in an approved degree, certificate, or diploma program;
3. Be a domiciliary resident of Virginia as defined by the Code of Virginia §23-7.4;
4. Be a citizen or eligible non-citizen of the U.S.;
5. Demonstrate financial need as determined by the institution;
6. Graduate from a Virginia high school (students who obtain a GED or complete home schooling are not eligible);
7. Have at least a cumulative high school grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent); and
8. Be classified as a dependent student for federal financial aid purposes.

To apply, please contact the financial aid office of the college or university you plan to attend for application process and deadlines.
