Additionally, if you are a foreign citizen and cannot qualify for in-state tuition, these are the cheapest universities in Virginia for international students.

Keep in mind that affordable doesn't necessarily mean finding a school with a low published tuition.

Sometimes a school which appears cheap on the surface can end up being more expensive if the college doesn't offer competitive aid.
