When will I receive a decision from VCU?

First-time freshman applicants

VCU is still currently accepting applications for the fall 2014 semester from first-time freshman applicants. Please note that the recommended deadline for freshmen applying to undergraduate programs for fall 2014 was Jan. 15, 2014. Applications received after the recommended Jan. 15, 2014 deadline will be reviewed on a space-available basis.

Students applying for freshman admission to the fall class who submitted their application and all required materials by the Jan. 15, 2014 deadline are guaranteed to receive a decision from the Office of Admissions in writing, via US mail, by April 1. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis; therefore students who applied earlier in the process may hear from our office earlier than other students.

Transfer applicants

VCU is accepting applications for the fall 2014 semester from transfer applicants. Please note that the recommended deadline for transfer applicants applying to most undergraduate programs for fall 2014 is May 1, 2014; however, some programs on the MCV Campus and in the School of the Arts may have additional requirements and deadlines. Please refer to the departmental websites for the program-specific information.

Should you have questions regarding your application status, please contact the Office of Admissions by phone at (804) 828-1222 or toll-free at (800) 841-3638. We may also be reached by e-mail at ugrad@vcu.edu.
