Admissions deadlines are approaching soon!

by Ian Wheeler, Graduate Student Assistant

Prospective Rams, I hope you all have had a successful first academic quarter and are getting ready for a well-deserved and restful Thanksgiving holiday! Before you get too excited for turkey, please be aware of our upcoming admissions deadlines:

November 15 – Freshmen applying for guaranteed admissions to the School of Medicine (B.S. /M.D.)

November 15 – Freshmen applying for guaranteed admission to health sciences programs other than the School of Medicine

December 1 – Freshmen applying for scholarship consideration

January 15 – Freshmen applying for regular decision

Please note that our guaranteed admissions programs are housed through our Honors College. In addition to applying to VCU for admission using the Common Application, there is a separate application that you will need to complete. For more information about this process, learn more here or contact their office by phone at (804) 828-1803 or by email at

Please also note that the November 15 and December 1 deadlines that occur before the January 15 deadline for regular decision are not the kinds of early action programs that result in any kind of binding agreement.

If you have further questions, now is the time to ask! Some of our deadlines are rapidly approaching! Here at VCU, we welcome your questions and wish you much success in all of your academic endeavors! If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone at (804) 828-1222 or by email at If you haven’t started yet, it is still not too late, begin your journey here!
