Join us virtually

Ready to experience VCU from the comfort of your home and find out what it's like to be a Ram? VCU is committed to offering a number of virtual opportunities for you to meet with our admissions staff and tour our campus.

Though we're disappointed that we are unable to host guests for on-campus visits at this time, or travel to meet with students in their hometowns, we know these decisions are the right ones. Your safety and health are of most importance to us.

We look forward to connecting with you virtually until we're able to meet again in-person!

Information sessions

Our virtual information sessions are held Monday through Saturday at various times for prospective students and their families. These information sessions are conducted by our admissions counselors and provide overviews of the university and the steps for completing the admissions application process.

High school visits and college fairs

Connect with your admissions counselor by registering for upcoming virtual high school visits and college fairs. These engaging sessions will offer prospective students an opportunity to hear more about what makes VCU unique, while providing students with an opportunity to get answers to all of their questions about the university and the admissions process.
