Swipe to Win

Swipe your VCU IDs at Welcome Week events, which will enter you for a chance to win prizes at the Student Organization Fair on Friday, August 24. Swipe at 10 events (two of each of the five categories) for a chance to win the Grand Prize: one semester of free undergraduate in-state tuition!*

Welcome Week Raffle prize winners will be revealed on the Welcome Week website, Facebook and RamGuide during Student Organization Fair on Friday, August 24 between 3-6 p.m. Winners DO NOT need to be present at Student Organization Fair and will be contacted via email with further instructions on how (when and where) to claim their prize.

*Free tuition is based on the full-time in-state tuition rate and is awarded in the spring semester 2019. If the prize winner is enrolled less than full time, the award will be based on the number of hours enrolled and awarded at the in-state rate. As with all financial aid, the award may be adjusted if the prize winner exceeds financial need or cost of attendance.
