E&G stands for Education and General Programs Budget. The E&G budget funds the majority of school costs, including instructional and student support, as well as it funds much of the required central functions such as the library, student accounting, IT, safety and security. Some funds within E&G are also set aside for financial aid.
At its March 21 budget workshop, the Virginia Commonwealth University Board of Visitors reviewed undergraduate tuition projections for the 2019-20 academic year, ranging from no increase to 4.5 percent. The board is considering the administration’s recommendation of no tuition increase.
The board is seeking comments through an Open Comment Portal. The deadline to submit comments is 5 p.m., Friday, April 26.
