The best way to get to know VMI is to visit. It is recommended that applicants visit VMI for an interview and a tour of the post.

The Admissions Office will arrange for interviews and tours as far as possible to suit the convenience of the applicant, who should cite a preferred date when writing for an appointment. Preferred times Mon. - Fri. are 9-11:30 a.m. and 1-3:30 p.m.
