VMCAS Application Fees and Fee Waivers

Fees 

VMCAS charges $220 for the first program you apply to and $120 for each additional program. 

Some programs may have an additional supplemental fee; contact your programs to learn if they require this and how to pay it.

Supplemental Applications and Fees

Individual schools may require supplemental applications and/or fees that should be sent directly to the school. Review each program's requirements for additional information and instructions. 

To determine if your school requires a supplemental application, refer to the College Descriptor Pages.

Fee Waiver Program

VMCAS will offer income-based, McNair Scholars merit-based, and military merit-based fee waivers starting on May 12, 2021, when you can submit your applications to programs. A limited number of fee waivers are provided to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Each fee waiver covers only the initial application fee of $220, so if you wish to apply to additional programs, you are responsible for the remaining balance. If you received a fee waiver or fee reimbursement during a previous cycle, you may still apply for another in the next cycle. 

More information will be available on May 12, 2021.

Letter of Explanation

If you don't qualify for an income-based, McNair Scholars merit-based, and military merit-based fee waiver through VMCAS, you can submit a letter explaining what method of financial support you have and/or why you cannot obtain or provide any of the documents for a VMCAS fee waiver.

More information will be available on May 12, 2021.
