Each student will submit an application and self-reported academic record. If a student has studied outside of the US, transcripts should be submitted. Students are reviewed holistically within the context of their own high school. We review course rigor, grades, test scores (if a student chooses to have them reviewed), intended major, four required personal statements, and personal qualities. Virginia Tech is test-optional for students entering in Fall 2021. 
Text Block Applying To TR
<p>Transfer applicants have attempted 12 or more credits after high school graduation. The most important factors considered are:</p>

<ul><li>Completion or progress toward completion of prerequisite coursework for your intended major. Create a competitive schedule by following the appropriate <a href="https://vt.edu/admissions/transfer/roadmaps.html" target="_blank">Admissions Transfer Roadmap</a>.</li><li>Overall GPA in all college coursework with an emphasis on courses related to your intended major, as well as more recent work. </li><li>Although we consider applicants with a cumulative GPA of 2.5, most competitive applicants will present a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. In majors where applications exceed available space, the competitive GPA may be higher.</li></ul>
Text Block Visiting Us
<a href="https://vt.edu/admissions/undergraduate/visit.html" target="_blank">Visiting Virginia Tech</a> is a great way to learn more about admissions, the community on campus, and your specific academic interests. No matter where you are in your college search process, we encourage a visit to see Virginia Tech for yourself. We do not track demonstrated interest so you can visit Virginia Tech on your own or through a scheduled information session and tour. If you are unable to come for a scheduled visit during the week, we do offer virtual sessions and Open Houses on three different weekends throughout the academic year.
