Guaranteed Admission

The Honors College offers a variety of Guaranteed Admission Programs focused on health sciences. Guaranteed Admission Programs allow highly qualified students to enter their professional program without competing via general admission at a later date, provided all requirements of the Guaranteed Admission Program are met. In order to be accepted into a Guaranteed Admission Program, you must be accepted by the university, by the Honors College and by the selection committee of the Guaranteed Admission Program you wish to enter.  

Applications open in early August. Applications for entering freshmen are due November 15 prior to the year of entry to VCU. Students who wish to be considered for University-wide scholarships from the Office of Admissions, must submit their Common Application by November 1.

Additionally, current Honors College students may apply for Guaranteed Admission at the end of their second year via the Preferred Applicant Track Program. Please note there is no Preferred Applicant Track Program for our baccalaureate Guaranteed Admission Programs.
