Virginia Tech Onsite Admission

Class of 2022

Onsite Admission is a service provided by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Virginia Tech to area high schools that allows for an early application review and decision.

Criteria to participate

Students must be academically prepared to attend Virginia Tech in the major they select. Although the review is holistic, taking into consideration several attributes, there are minimum requirements to participate in onsite admission, including:

  • a cumulative GPA above a 3.25
  • evidence of college-level work with attempting an advance curriculum (either through honors, AP, Dual Enrollment, or IB courses) and
  • have met with either a school counselor or admissions counselor to finalize major selection for the Virginia Tech application.

Deadline to participate

In order to receive an early notification of admission, a completed application (including the Self-Reported Academic Record) must be received by end-of-day on Monday, October 4th. Students can apply with either Coalition or CommonApp found on our apply page.

Delivery of decision

Decisions will be placed in the mail on Thursday, October 28th.

Due to COVID-19, counselors will not need to provide a list of students to be considered, however a list would be helpful by Monday, October 4th to ensure no student is missed. Our office will review all students from the qualified school who completed the application by the deadline to be considered for onsite admission. A request to meet with you to discuss applicants will be scheduled in mid-October. A list of student application decisions will be provided to you by October 26th.
