MCV Campus applicants

Transfer students and current VCU students who wish to apply to undergraduate programs in clinical laboratory sciences, clinical radiation sciences, dental hygiene and nursing on the MCV Campus should be aware that courses and credit requirements for admission vary for each program. Applicants to any of these programs must submit supplemental admission materials, all of which are available online. Please carefully read and follow all instructions outlined on each department’s admission information page:

To accept VCU’s offer of admission, you can submit your tuition deposit online PDF today if you wish to pay by credit card. Students accepted into Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Clinical Radiation Sciences and Dental Hygiene who would rather send us a check or money order can use the official response form PDF for these MCV Campus undergraduate programs. Complete the form and return it to the Office of Admissions along with your tuition deposit to ensure your space is reserved. Students accepted into the School of Nursing must submit their deposit online and should refer to their acceptance packet for details and information.

Honors/Guaranteed Admission applicants

A separate application is required for admission into both The Honors College and the Guaranteed Admission program and is available online. For more information, call (804) 828-1803, email honors@vcu.edu or visit www.honors.vcu.edu.
