A Rewarding Experience Awaits

The distinctive VMI approach to higher education, which is the result of over 180 years of development, continues to prove its effectiveness in providing young men and women an environment that fosters intellectual, physical, and character development.

Our Admissions Team is ready to meet with you to discuss how you can become part of this storied Institute.

Personal interviews are a good opportunity to speak one-on-one with a member of our Admissions Team and learn more about VMI.

This semester, in order to best serve interested applicants, prospective cadets may choose a virtual interview, conducted over Zoom, or an in-person interview on Post. For those able to visit in-person, interviews are available Monday-Friday at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 2:00 p.m. A member of our Admissions Team will provide details once you have registered for accessing Post, including protocols and procedures currently in place. You can also find details about Post access on our COVID-19 Info Portal.
