What We Need From You

Whether you apply online or send in the paper application, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions must receive the following supporting materials to ensure your application file is complete:

Application must be postmarked or submitted online by December 1. The supplemental materials listed below may follow at a later date.

  1. Payment of the non-refundable application fee of $60.
  2. SAT Reasoning Test or ACT scores. Tests should be taken by the December test date of the applicant’s senior year. Virginia Tech’s CEEB code is 5859; the ACT code is 4420.
  3. High School Transcript: An official or unofficial copy of your current high school transcript must be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions within a reasonable time period from the application deadline (Early Decision: November 1; Regular Decision: December 1). Transcripts for Regular Decision freshman applications should be received by January 15.
  4. Mid-Year High School Grades: Applicants should work with their high school counselors to submit their first semester grades to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions as soon as available (no later than February 26). These grades will be accepted electronically or via paper.
  5. Final Grades/High School Transcript: All incoming freshmen must submit their final official high school transcripts to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions no later than August 1.

Letters of recommendation are not requested; however, if an applicant chooses to send one, it must accompany the high school transcript.

Don’t forget to…

  • Provide your U.S. Social Security Number and correct date of birth.
  • Indicate your planned entrance date.
  • Include copies of both sides of your Resident Alien card and visa (if applicable).
  • Select your requested major.
  • Check the Early Decision box and sign the Early Decision statement at the end of the application (if applicable).
  • Agree to and sign the Pledge of Honor.
  • For maximum financial aid consideration, complete the FAFSA as soon as possible. The priority deadline is January 15.
  • Complete the Virginia Tech General Scholarship application by February 15 for all need and non-need based scholarships. (You must complete the FAFSA before you can submit the General Scholarship application.)

Note: It is the responsibility of each applicant to submit all required information and materials as soon as possible. Completed applications will receive priority in the review process. Because of time constraints, it is not always possible for the admissions office to request missing information. When submitting supplemental materials separate from the application, make sure your name, date of birth, and college name are included on all pieces. Also, be sure to include your current name, if different from the name on the materials.

To help us and yourself, please review the above checklist carefully. The university reserves the right to withdraw, without notice, any application that is not complete by the deadline.
