August 5, 2013 | The University of Virginia Board of Visitors voted August 3 to reauthorize AccessUVa, one of the most successful and effective financial aid programs among the nation's public colleges and universities. Approval of the resolution extends the program, launched in 2004, to continue to meet 100 percent of the demonstrated need of undergraduate students, regardless of their financial circumstances. The board's vote also instituted a program adjustment designed to maintain the program's effectiveness and availability while placing its institutional costs on a sustainable path.
