2017 General Assembly Update
Tuition Assistance Grant (TAG)
In December, Governor McAuliffe presented his proposed budget for the 2016-2018 biennium to the House and Senate money committees. The budget did not include any changes to the Tuition Assistance Grant (TAG) appropriation for FY 2018.
The General Assembly will review and amend the Governor's budget, and is expected to adopt and sign a budget conference report in February.
The TAG award amount for 2017-2018 is projected to be $3,300 for undergraduate students and $1,650 for graduate students in health professions programs. This projection may change depending on any action taken by the General Assembly or other factors.
