Applications for transfer students and current VCU students applying to Undergraduate Health Sciences programs on the MCV Campus

Transfer students and current VCU students who wish to apply to undergraduate programs in clinical laboratory sciences, clinical radiation sciences, dental hygiene and nursing on the MCV Campus should be aware that courses and credit requirements for admission vary for each program. Applicants to any of these programs must submit supplemental admissions materials, all of which are available online.

Each program utilizes a self-managed application process and faculty committees to evaluate criteria appropriate to the profession.

Why we ask for your Social Security number

While VCU does not require your Social Security number for admission consideration, it is necessary for applicants who wish to be considered for financial aid and Hope Scholarship/Lifetime Learning tax credit to provide a Social Security number to the university. To protect your privacy, your Social Security number will not be used as your VCU student identification number.
