Get Involved!

You will have the opportunity to become more involved with recruiting highly qualified, diverse applicants to Virginia Tech by taking part in one of three levels of involvement.

  1. Admissions Affiliate - These campus partners are looking to stay informed about new Admissions initiatives and possibly get more involved in the future.
  2. Admissions Ally - These campus partners are looking to become more involved in Admissions events, recruitment, or focus groups.
  3. Admissions Associate - These campus partners are looking to become more involved with the application review process by becoming outside readers. They will need to go through an outside reader training and dedicate their time to read and score applicant essays. Additional information related to becoming an associate and registering for training dates can be found here.
