Standardized test scores (SAT I and/or ACT) must be reported directly from the testing agency if not included on the high school transcript.
Applicants meeting the November 15 deadline for early decision will be notified no later than December 15. Beginning January 1, on a rolling basis, decisions will be made on all applications for regular decision and those applicants deferred from early acceptance. A waiting list may be necessary.
Accepted applicants will be sent "conditional" appointments which are tentative pending establishment of a reservation. A reservation requires submission of satisfactory medical and dental reports, a signed acceptance of the appointment, and payment of a $300 advance deposit. The advance deposit is deducted from the total charges for the first year of enrollment. It is refundable if requested in writing before May 1, or if the applicant is found physically disqualified.
VMI reserves the right to cancel any appointment or reservation if the recipient is found to be physically disqualified or if a subsequent academic or conduct record is found unsatisfactory. Entrance requirements must be fully met before the date of matriculation. No one will be admitted on probation.
