Access MBU 

As part of our commitment to access and affordability, we’re offering zero-cost tuition to all FAFSA-eligible Virginia students with families who make less than $60,000 annually through our Access MBU program. This means that if you qualify, you won’t have to pay anything out-of-pocket toward tuition.

At MBU, we believe in the potential of our students and strive to remove barriers to achieving a college education. Our career-focused academics and dynamic extracurricular experiences will help you level up your skills and confidence. Plus, we have dedicated professional advisors and life success coaches to help you move easily from college to career.

Here’s how Access MBU works: 

  • You must be a legal Virginia resident and a new, full-time undergraduate student (residential or commuter) enrolling for the upcoming fall semester. 
  • Families with income below $60,000/year qualify. Your eligibility will be confirmed when you complete your MBU application and financial aid process.
  • After you’re accepted to MBU and file your FAFSA (MBU’s FAFSA code is 003723), you’ll receive your financial aid package and learn about your eligibility for Access MBU. 
  • You’ll be eligible for Access MBU every year, as long as you remain enrolled as a full-time, residential, undergraduate student and make satisfactory academic progress.

We combine federal, state, and university grant and scholarship aid so you can access debt-free tuition. And if you have any questions or need help with the application process, remember that MBU is here to help! You can reach out anytime to 540-887-7022 or [email protected].
