Tuition Discounts for Virginia Residents!

Student in BRCC's Welding Facility

The Commonwealth of Virginia is offsetting the tuition – by 66% - of certain high-demand credential programs at BRCC through the Workforce Credential Grant (WCG). Students pay 1/3 of the tuition when they register, and the remainder is paid by the State when the student finishes the course and obtains the credential.  In addition to the WCG discount, need-based financial assistance is available for those who qualify.
