First-Year Students

You can choose either application and only need to apply once. We have no preference between the two application platforms.

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.

The Coalition Essay question should not be completed. It will not be reviewed. Everyone will complete the four Ut Prosim Essays which are in our questions following the profile section.

For U.S. citizens/permanent residents studying in the U.S.

Complete the application including the coursework section and the ACT/SAT test score section. Coursework should match the transcript. If changes need to be made to your coursework or ACT/SAT, you will need to make corrections on the Self-Reported Academic Record website.

For U.S. citizens/permanent residents studying outside of the U.S.

Complete the application excluding the coursework section but including the ACT/SAT test score section. Student will upload transcript(s) at the end of the application prior to submitting it instead of completing the coursework section.

For non-U.S. citizens/permanent residents studying in the U.S.

If all high school coursework has been in the US, complete the application including the coursework section. Coursework should match the transcript. If student has ACT/SAT test scores, they may include these (optional). If student’s native language is not English, they must include TOEFL/IELTS or other English Proficiency test scores or ACT/SAT tests scores on the application. Circumstances may vary depending upon the student’s situation.
If all high school coursework has not been completed in the US, student will exclude the coursework section and upload transcript(s) at the end the application prior to submitting it.

For non-U.S. citizens/permanent residents studying outside of the U.S.

Complete the application excluding the coursework section. If student’s native language is not English, they should include TOEFL/IELTS or other English Proficiency test scores or ACT/SAT tests scores on the application. If native language is English, English Proficiency test scores are not required. ACT/SAT scores are optional.

Please use Virginia Tech’s College Information tab to see an overview of the application process. We do not use the Common App Personal Essay, letters of recommendation, the school report, or final report. As a reminder, Virginia Tech is test-optional for the 2020-2021 admissions cycle. If you would like for your scores to be reviewed with your application, please select that option when you apply. Please note that if you do not want to include test scores in the review of your application that it will not impact your admission decision.

For students studying inside the U.S.

You will self-report your coursework, grades, and senior schedule through your Self-Reported Academic Record. If you would like for ACT/SAT scores to be reviewed, you can also add those to your Self-Reported Academic Record.

For students studying outside of the U.S.

You will need to upload copies of your unofficial transcripts through a link provided to you in an email. If you would like for ACT/SAT scores to be reviewed, you will be able to upload those as well.

Transfer Students

We are Common App exclusive for transfer applicants.

 

Self-Reported Academic Record

First-year and transfer students: If you have studied only in the U.S., you will use the Self-Reported Academic Record to report coursework, grades, and test scores (if applicable). If you have studied outside of the U.S., you will upload your international transcripts and test scores (if applicable) through a link that will be sent to you after applying. Transfer students that have studied outside of the U.S. also have the option to upload international transcripts to their Common App.
