ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - Piedmont Virginia Community College is extending its 100% tuition assistance program to all eligible, new and returning students who enroll in the spring 2022 semester.

The community college made the announcement Tuesday, October 26. It says PVCC4U. 100% helps ensure Virginians who wish to go to college are not hindered by the costs.

“We are doing something something innovative, something unique, and something that will make a difference for the people in our community,” PVCC President Frank Friedman said.

So far, 431 students have taken advantage of the program. That’s worth over $500,000 in tuition and fees.

To be eligible for free tuition and fees through PVCC4U. 100%! in the spring, students must:

  • Be a Virginia resident
  • Complete the financial aid application process
  • Have a family income of $100,000 or less or have been laid off or furloughed due to COVID-19
  • Enroll in 6 credit hours or more in the upcoming spring semester
