Admissions and Aid

For the individual who wants an undergraduate experience more complete and transformative than an ordinary college or university can provide and more versatile in its applications than a military service academy affords, VMI offers a superb education.

Its efficacy is well demonstrated by generations of VMI graduates. Among the alumni of VMI are: a Nobel Prize winner, eleven Rhodes Scholars, seven Medal of Honor recipients, a Pulitzer Prize winner, college presidents and generals and flag officers.



Application opens Sept. 1 for HS seniors.

Costs, Aid, Scholarships

Tuition and Fees are just a starting point. Visit the Office of Financial Aid to see ways those costs may be lowered. 

You’ll find information about loans, grants, cadet employment opportunities, and scholarships, and you’ll find a net price calculator that will help you evaluate your family’s financial situation and give you an estimate of what the actual annual cost of VMI may be.
