Traditional B.S.: VCU students

If you are a current or former VCU student, you do not need to submit an official VCU transcript as part of your application to the Traditional B.S. program. You must upload an unofficial copy of your VCU transcript to the supplemental material form. Be sure the unofficial transcript includes all grades from fall 2015 courses.

You must submit official transcripts from all other colleges to the Undergraduate Admissions Office. This includes course work taken as part of a high school dual-enrollment program, nondegree-seeking study, study abroad or courses taken and transferred to VCU. If you believe VCU may already have official transcripts from other colleges you have attended, please contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office to ensure they have access to these documents.
