Guaranteed admission through The Honors College

Active members of The Honors College may apply to The Honors College Guaranteed Admission Program for certain graduate programs either before matriculation at VCU or early in their undergraduate studies. (The specific deadline for applying is set by the program.) Upon graduation, honors students in the Guaranteed Admission Program may enter the graduate program to which they have applied, provided they have satisfied all of the program requirements.

Interested students should meet with the senior associate dean of The Honors College prior to making application for guaranteed admission to a graduate program. Following that meeting, the student must submit a completed graduate application form with three letters of recommendation to the Graduate School. To be accepted into The Honors College Guaranteed Admission Program, a student must be accepted by the university, by the Graduate School and by the admissions committee of the program the student wishes to enter. The admissions committee may require an interview. Final notification of guaranteed admission is made by the dean of the Graduate School.
