Virginia Tech Undergraduate Application

All students seeking a four-year undergraduate degree from Virginia Tech should apply through the Coalition for College. This includes international, domestic, and transfer students. This is a third-party application accepted by hundreds of colleges around the country. You can start building your profile anytime, and this profile will help you streamline the application process later. If you're applying to a school that accepts the Coalition application, you can use the profile information to submit a lot of your information without having to enter it again.

Your profile is open year-round and allows you to input new achievements and update your information as needed.

If Virginia Tech is the only Coalition application school you’re applying to, there are several parts of the Coalition application you can skip:

When completing your Coalition Profile, the “Profile Check” should be in the 'ON' position. This will allow the application to show you areas that need attention.
