What an incredible year it’s been here at Virginia International University! We hope it’s been equally exciting and rewarding for you and your loved ones, too.

Over the past year we have increased the strength of our institution and further improved the quality of the VIU education by launching new programs and concentrations in the fields of education, applied linguistics, computer information systems, project management, and accounting. We purchased a beautiful new campus building in Fairfax, Virginia which will boast 65,000 square feet of classroom, study, leisure, and administrative space for our university.
