Guaranteed Admission Program

The Honors College Guaranteed Admission (GA) Program allows some honors students to gain admission to certain of the university’s professional health sciences or graduate programs. (See the online Graduate or Professional Programs bulletins for specific program information.) Honors students in the GA Program generally may enter the program of their choice without required test scores (except for statistical purposes) and without payment of the application fee, provided they fulfill the requirements for graduating with University Honors and satisfy all of the requirements of the GA Program.

Guaranteed Admission Program application procedures

To be accepted into a Guaranteed Admission Program, a student must be accepted by the university, by The Honors College and by the admissions committee of the program the student wishes to enter. A separate application for guaranteed admission is required. The admissions committee may require an interview. The application (postmark) deadline for the GA Program (all health sciences) is Nov. 15 of the year prior to the year the student is planning to enroll at VCU.

For additional information about The Honors College GA Program, see The Honors College Web site at, or write or call Dr. Anne L. Chandler, Interim Dean, The Honors College, Virginia Commonwealth University, P.O. Box 843010, Richmond, VA 23284-3010, (804) 828-1803,

The VCU Bulletin is in transition! As we move from this first iteration of our online Bulletin to a new product and process, what you find on this website is information for the 2014-15 academic year.

While much of the curricular information remains the same, changes that were approved with the effective date of fall 2015 will not be reflected on this website. Prospective students may wish to contact the school or department that administers their program of interest in order to discuss the most current curriculum and concentration options.

Enrolled students who are completing their studies under an effective Bulletin may continue to access the archives at, where past Bulletins are available to reference or download.

Our anticipated launch of the new VCU Bulletin is July 2015. To follow our progress, visit the new Bulletin blog.
