Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Fall 2015 Transfer Information

The VCU Office of Admissions is still accepting applications for transfer admission for most undergraduate programs for fall 2015. With the exception of the MCV Campus' health science programs which had firm deadlines (nursing, dental hygiene, clinical laboratory sciences, and clinical radiation sciences), they are still encouraging students to apply for fall 2015 transfer admission. If at any time this changes, their office will immediately update their website, http://ugrad.vcu.edu/apply/index.html, to reflect the change.


Students who have already been offered fall transfer admission into VCU may now register to attend transfer New Student Orientation (NSO). You are encourage to sign up sooner than later. However, prior to doing so, you must first accept their offer of admission and allow 24-48 hours for this information to be processed. Instructions on how to accept your offer of admission and to sign up for NSO are included in your acceptance packet, as well as VCU’s Accepted Student website, http://www.ugradaccepted.vcu.edu/index.html. All new students are required to attend NSO and while there you will meet with an academic advisor, learn how your transfer credits apply to your VCU program, register for classes, meet faculty and other transfer students, and become acclimated to campus.


If you have any questions about the transfer application process to VCU, please contact Shanee’ R. Crews, Associate Director for Transfer Recruitment, by email at srcrews@vcu.edu or by phone at (804) 828-6211 or (800) 841-3638.
