Admissions Policy

The admissions policy requires graduation from an accredited high school or successful completion of the GED. The admissions committee considers applicants with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 (on a 4.0 scale); however, most competitive applicants will present a GPA of 2.5 or better. Each applicant is evaluated within the context of the high school(s) attended; we recognize that GPAs are calculated in many different ways. The admissions committee’s review of grades is based upon the letter and/or numeric grades presented for each class, not the GPA. For the last two years, the average GPA for incoming students was 3.00. Applicants to the Agricultural Technology Program should complete the same coursework required of freshmen at Virginia Tech in order to be prepared for college-level work.

Before you can be considered for freshman admission, you must complete the following:

  • 18 units of high school coursework
  • 4 units of English
  • 3 units of math (Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II)
  • 2 units of laboratory science (chosen from biology, chemistry, or physics)
  • 2 units of social science (one must be history)
  • 3 additional academic units (foreign language is highly recommended)
  • 4 elective units

Test Requirement

The SAT is recommended, but not required. Virginia Tech's CEEB code is 5859.
