The following requirements must be completed in order to finalize your admission:

  1. Complete and return the Response Form in the enclosed envelope. If we do not receive your acceptance by the date indicated on the form, we will assume you have made other plans, and your offer of admission will be withdrawn. If you desire confirmation that we received your response, please return the form to us by certified mail.
  2. Along with your response form, send a $400 matriculation fee, by check or money order, made payable to Treasurer, Virginia Tech. On the check, be sure to provide your student ID number from the enclosed letter.
  3. Follow the steps on the Essential Steps card included in this mailing.
  4. Send final official transcripts of all high school work, as well as any college work (if applicable), through the spring term so that it is received by the undergraduate admissions office before your scheduled summer orientation session. If we do not receive your final high school transcript by August 1, we will not have confirmation that you met admissions requirements and, as a result, your offer will be rescinded and you will be unable to attend. Attendance at summer orientation and registration for fall courses does not exempt you from this requirement.
  5. Ensure that a transcript reflecting dual enrollment credit is submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions as soon as it is available. If you anticipate receiving credit through Advanced Placement (AP) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, send your AP or IB examination scores electronically, via the appropriate testing service, to the Office of the University Registrar, 250 Student Services Building, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia, 24061.
