First-Year Students

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

Please use Virginia Tech's College Information tab to see an overview of the application process. We do not use the following sections of the Coalition Application: Coalition Essay, letters of recommendation, SAT/ACT, Additional Tests, or the Academic Interest sections. 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 you will receive after submitting your application. If you would like for ACT/SAT scores to be reviewed, you will be able to upload those as well.
