What You'll Need

Transcripts

Include a scanned copy of your college transcripts with your online application, then arrange for an official copy to be sent to us after you receive an offer of admission.

Letters of Recommendation

Check to see whether your department requires letters of recommendation from references. If so, you can include their email addresses in your online application, or have them send paper copies directly to your program’s department.

Graduate School Testing Requirements

The Graduate School doesn’t require entrance tests, but check to see whether your department requires you to submit GRE, GMAT, or subject test scores with your application. If so, have the testing agency send official scores to Virginia Tech Graduate School, code 5859.

Application Fees

Degree-seeking students must include a $75 fee with their application, though check to see if you qualify for a waiver or reduced fee.

Submission Deadlines

Check with your department to see if its submission deadlines fall before the Graduate School's established deadlines, shown in this chart.

Applying as an International Student

International students seeking F-1 or J-1 status may apply only to the Blacksburg and National Capital Region campuses and may not enroll in executive master's and virtual programs.  

International students might be required to submit TOEFL scores, immigration documents, and other additional materials with their application.
