Twenty-three colleges are participating in the 2019 Virginia Private College Week, emphasizing quality and affordability of private higher education during special sessions for prospective students and families.
Colleges from July 22-27 will offer campus tours and information sessions about academic programs, admissions, financial aid, and student life. College officials will also address some of the common myths about the cost of a private college education. Participating students will receive three college application fee waivers, saving money when applying to college.
“Visiting campuses in person is one of the most important steps in the college search process,” explains Robert Lambeth, President of CICV. “I encourage parents to explore which college will be the best fit for their son or daughter, and I want to reassure them that a quality education at a Virginia private college is affordable and within reach.”
Sessions at most colleges will begin at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and at 9 a.m. on Saturday. V is itwww. va private colleges. org
