Campus Connection Day

Campus Connection Day (CCD) is a single day event designed for students and families who wish to learn more about African-American, Latinx and First-Generation student experiences at Virginia Tech. This includes learning about the opportunities and resources we have available for you, such as our Cultural and Community Centers, Student Opportunities and Achievement Resources program (SOAR), Living-Learning Programs and much more. Due to Covid-19 this year’s program will be all virtual.

Part one is the Open House hosted by Undergraduate Admissions. It is optional, but strongly encouraged, and has a separate registration. Registration is not live yet for Open House, but we will send a reminder email once you can sign up. Part two is Campus Connection Day.

If you participate in CCD and apply for admission no later than October 18, 2020, you may be eligible for an admissions decision at the conclusion of the program. Information about applying will be included with your registration confirmation. Registration will go live September 1, 2020 and close on October 10, 2020 (deadline extended).

Please note you must meet the student requirements below in order to participate in CCD:

  • Senior/12th grade standing
  • Minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA (with no Ds or Fs and minimal Cs)
  • Coursework must show college preparatory rigor within the context of your school (AP, IB, Dual Enrollment, Honors).

There are three tracks. Each track will have the same schedule, but the identity of the specific track you choose will be highlighted throughout the program.

We understand you may identify with more than one track, but for the purposes of the program please choose the one you identify with the most or would like to learn more about.
