From the Institution

Located in the capital city of Virginia, the University of Richmond combines the characteristics of a small college with the dynamics and resources of a large university, including Division I athletics. Our smaller size, beautiful suburban campus, and outstanding facilities offer students an extraordinary range of intellectual achievement and personal growth opportunities. While faculty-student interaction and dialogue are at the forefront of the academic experience, research, internships, and international experiences are essential components of students' lives. Richmond is committed to providing students with rigorous academics and experiential learning. The University offers funding for undergraduate research, summer fellowships, and internships. Our global approach to education shines through our many study-abroad and language immersion programs. We are committed to diversity and believe in leveraging its benefits in all aspects of college life. The student body is composed of scholars from a variety of backgrounds. Nearly one in four undergraduates is a domestic student of color; one in seven is the first in their family to attend college; one in eleven is an international student; and 84 percent hail from outside of Virginia. The University is one of very few U.S. colleges that combines need-blind admission and meets 100 percent of demonstrated financial need for U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Richmond will offer a temporary change in its admission practice by giving first-year applicants for 2025 the choice of applying with standardized test scores or applying under test-optional review.
