Transfer Student Guide

Virginia Military Institute welcomes applications from students wishing to transfer from another accredited college or university.

For questions regarding the transfer process, contact:

Transfer Policy

General
Applicants are normally not less than 16 or more than 22 years of age at matriculation and may not be married or the parent of a child.

Residence
At least two years (four semesters) of residence at VMI are required regardless of the number of course credits approved for transfer. At least 50 percent of degree requirements must be completed at VMI.

For additional information, contact the registrar’s office at 540-464-7213 or registrar@vmi.edu.

Decisions
The VMI Admissions Committee determines whether or not the transfer applicant is qualified for admission. For students who are admitted, academic department heads determine the acceptability of courses taken at the previous institution(s).

Secondary school record
All transfer applicants must submit an official transcript of their secondary school record, with standardized test scores (SAT I or ACT). For those students whose first language is not English, the College Board Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required. Importance of the secondary school record will vary depending on how long the student has been enrolled in an accredited college program of study and its course content. In general, it is expected that the secondary school record will meet the VMI entrance standards. A one-page essay is optional for all students.

College record
To be competitive for appointment, transfer students should have at least a “B” (3.2 on a 4.0 scale) cumulative quality point average on all courses attempted. In addition, they must be in good standing with respect to their academic and conduct records and eligible to return to the previous college or university, which must be accredited.

College Report Form
A copy of this form must be submitted from ALL colleges you have attended since graduating from high school in addition to OFFICIAL transcripts from those institutions.  Please take the following steps so that the proper information is received in a timely manner.

Credit transfer
Credit transfer requires a grade of “C” or better in the course without regard to grades achieved on other courses of the same sequence or the average grade for the sequence. Credit transfer also requires that content of the course be accepted by the appropriate VMI curricular head toward fulfillment of baccalaureate degree requirements in the curriculum.

Transfer courses that can be applied to degree requirements at VMI are determined by the curriculum selected. Transfer students are encouraged to review curriculum requirements in the VMI Catalog to ensure appropriate course selection. No more than one-half of the total hours required for VMI graduation may be transferred. Quality points are not transferable. Quality points earned at other colleges before transfer to VMI are not counted in the computation of the 2.0 quality point average required for VMI graduation.

Those students enrolled in another college or university must submit an official transcript and catalog in order to have courses evaluated by the appropriate academic department head. Students enrolled in courses offered by the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) are directed to view the VCCS course listing to determine transferability of credits prior to enrolling in any course. Foreign students are encouraged to have their transcripts evaluated by a company providing foreign credential services to ensure the maximum number of credits transfer.

All others should send a copy of the college catalog with the course(s) they intend to take to Transfer Coordinator, VMI Admissions Office, Lexington, VA, 4450-0304

A summary report of transfer credit will be mailed after the applicant has been appointed.

Class standing
Transfer students are classified academically the same as entering first-time students (4th Class) until they return for their second year at VMI. At that time they may request reclassification based on the total number of semester hours earned and prevailing academic standards for the upper classes.

Waiver of transferable credits
An applicant may waive transferable credits and follow a regular 4th Class (freshman) curriculum, but exercise of this option does not exempt the student from meeting all entrance standards for transfer applicants.

ROTC credits
If the applicant is a transfer student and desires to pursue an Army commission, he/she can receive credit for the Army ROTC Basic Course (first/second year) by attending a four-week Leadership Training Camp at Ft. Knox, Ky.

For Naval ROTC, first/second years of training may be fulfilled by attending a seven-week summer program at the Naval Science Institute. Generally, Naval ROTC credit is not given for Army ROTC or Air Force ROTC training. The professor of naval science may review records and seek waivers, where appropriate, on a case-by-case basis.

Requirements for the Air Force ROTC General Military Course (first/second year) may be waived by attending a six-week Air Force Field Training program, for honorable military service, or by transfer from other Air Force ROTC programs.

For additional information on each service’s specific requirements, contact the individual ROTC offices. Transfer students may also arrange to take first/second-year basic ROTC courses simultaneously at VMI if they lack credit for the first year.

Matriculation of transfers
Accepted transfer applicants are matriculated only at the beginning of the academic year in August. Mid-year transfer is not possible.

Transferring from the Virginia Community College System

Preferential treatment with regard to admission is awarded to transfer students from the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) who have completed an associate’s degree.

Transfer students are also encouraged to review information in our catalog regarding courses that may be taken for elective credit.

VCCS-VMI Course Equivalencies

All transfer students should check the degree requirements of their intended academic major in the VMI catalog prior to registering for VCCS classes. The following list of VMI equivalent courses should be used as a tool in determining which courses to take.

For information concerning transferability of courses, contact Lt. Col.  Neil Whitmore.
