Virginia Tech Undergraduate Application

This year, Virginia Tech is moving to a new application platform: Coalition for College. This application is for all degree-seeking undergraduate applicants: international, domestic, and transfer. 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.

While application season doesn’t start until Fall 2018, 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 school you’re applying to, there are several parts of the Coalition application you can skip:

  • The coursework
  • College Coursework
  • SAT/ACT/Subject/Additional Tests
  • Essays
  • Academic Interests.
  • Virginia Tech does not review Letters of Recommendation, so please do not include these.

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.


Self-reported Academic Record

In lieu of the Coalition coursework, Virginia Tech will be accepting a self-reported academic record. This reporting system will be available when the application opens, but you do not need to worry about filling in the coursework in the Coalition profile if Virginia Tech is the only school you’re considering. Watch the tutorial video here . Having trouble linking your record to your Coalition application? This video will guide you through the linking process.

Students outside of the United States

Self-reported academic record is only for use by domestic applicants. For students outside the United States, please follow the instructions for submitting transcripts.

Ut Prosim Profile

Virginia Tech will also require short-answer essay responses on the 2018-19 application. These will help students tell their story and allow their life experiences to enrich their application.
