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.
Open House Visits
Open House Visits allow high school seniors and juniors to sleep in barracks, eat in the mess hall, and talk with faculty, admission counselors, and cadets.
Hgh school guidance counselors are encouraged to bring college-bound students to visit VMI.
Visits typically include a tour of post, admissions overview, and optional lunch. Parades are often scheduled for Friday afternoons and are a favorite of our visitors.
