Our Mission

The mission of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Virginia Tech is to attract, recruit, and enroll a highly qualified, talented, and diverse student body in a manner that supports the university's well-being.

Each year, the office reviews around 20,000 applications, with zero automation. Admissions directors use a holistic approach throughout the review process. Many factors are considered, the most important being rigor of academic program, grades in academic courses, and standardized test scores. 

Other factors include:

  • Ethnicity
  • First-generation
  • Special talents
  • Leadership and service
  • Legacy
  • Major requested
  • Participation in Virginia Tech Pipeline Programs
  • Personal statements
  • Disciplinary record
  • Residency
  • Corps of Cadets
