Each year, the Office of Admissions at VMI identifies potential candidates
who may benefit from a VMI education and who possess the desire, the
academic potential and personal characteristics to be successful. Once
identified, the Office communicates with these individuals to provide
important information about the academic and co-curricular opportunities
available at VMI, to answer questions about all aspects of the institution's
educational system, and to counsel them about college selection issues.
VMI seeks to enroll a class of individuals who are not only academically
talented, but who also can contribute to all aspects of the VMI educational
system. In making an offer of admission, the admissions staff reviews
academic credentials, letters of reference, extracurricular activities,
standardized test scores and other materials to determine if an applicant
meets admissions criteria.
