Reservation and Medical Requirements

When an applicant receives a conditional appointment, they also receive instructions on establishing their Post View account. Post View (VMI's internal user system) is used for the final steps of the VMI admissions process.

It is important to begin completing the final steps as soon as possible after receiving your conditional appointment.

Be sure to apply for financial aid and read up on the recent updates to the FAFSA. For in-state tuition, you must complete the application for Virginia in-state tuition rates and submit it to Admissions.
