Welcome to the Office of Admissions

The Office of Admissions acts as the catalyst in identifying students who will be admitted to the University as well as maintaining and storing academic records of all current and former students.  Office personnel strive to maintain a high quality of service to all, and to maintain and protect the academic integrity of the student record in accordance with University, state and federal guidelines.

Please see the special message below from College Board related to students affected by Hurricane Harvey:

The College Board will offer a free October SAT registration, and a College Scholarship Services (CSS) Profile fee waiver to students affected by Hurricane Harvey. 

We recognize this is an incredibly challenging time as you work to recover from the storm. We are taking this step to support students and families who are struggling as a result of the hurricane.

The free October SAT registration and CSS Profile fee waiver are for students who are experiencing hardship and/or displacement due to the hurricane and are in an area designated by FEMA. Please scroll down for the list of FEMA counties.*

Students who are registered for the October SAT should call Customer Service to receive a refund of their registration and late fee. Students can register and contact Customer Service through September 27.

For the CSS Profile fee waiver, students should go to cssprofile.org:https://student.collegeboard.org/css-financial-aid-profile?excmpid=vt-00231. They must also complete their application and the system will automatically apply eligibility rules.

We hope this measure can ease some worry for students and help their college-going plans proceed as smoothly as possible. Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent hurricanes, and we hope for the safety of people in the affected areas. We will continue to update this page with information about additional supports.
