Undergraduate Admissions

Get out your calendar, set up a reminder on your smartphone or tie a string around your finger. These are deadlines you don’t want to miss!


When applying for admission to a college or university, it’s essential to be aware of the deadlines for submission of materials. Deadlines often vary depending on the program or school that you are applying to, and many of those deadlines are firm. It’s also important to know what documents and materials are required for the particular program you are applying to; many programs require supplemental application materials and information before your application will be considered.

Transfer applicants will be notified of an admission decision on a rolling basis until the class is filled. Priority application review will be given to students who apply and submit all required documentation by the recommended application deadline. For assistance and inquiries regarding selecting courses at your current college to help prepare for your future transfer to VCU, the transferability of your credits, course equivalencies and resources for transfer students, visit VCU Transfer Center website for more information.
