Transfer Students

Virginia Military Institute welcomes applications from students wishing to transfer from another regionally accredited college or university.

The early decision (November 15) and regular decision (February 1) deadlines for transfer students are the same as those for regular first-time freshman applicants. Since all accepted students matriculate in August, mid-year transfer from another college or university is not possible.

Academic department heads review and determine the acceptability of transfer coursework taken at other regionally accredited institutions. It is important to note that, regardless of the number of credits approved for transfer, all students must complete at least six (6) semesters of residence at VMI. Students may also complete five (5) semesters of residence plus one (1) semester in VMI’s approved study abroad program.
