• Visit VMI in Person

    It is the best way to figure out if VMI is right for you.

Personal Interview

VMI recommends applicants visit for an interview.  To schedule an interview, call 800-767-4207,  email us, or use the form.  Please request a specific date.  Interviews are offered Monday through Friday, 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 3:30 p.m.

Tours are offered at noon and are available only when cadets are on post.  Tours are not available when classes are not in session, such as during spring and summer breaks.

Daily Cadet Tours

Cadet-guided tours are offered daily (dependent on cadet availability) at noon, departing from the lobby of the VMI Museum in Jackson Memorial Hall (Level 200).

There will be no tours July 22  through Sept. 12 or at any time when cadets are on break.

Tours last approximately 50 minutes.

Contact the VMI Museum at 540-464-7334 for more information.

Group Tours

Group tours are designed for high school guidance counselors to bring their college-bound students to visit VMI and see the unique educational opportunities offered. Visits typically include a tour of post, admissions overview, and optional lunch ($8.00 ). Parades are often scheduled for Friday afternoons and are a favorite of our visitors.

If you visit on a day when VMI is scheduled to play a home NCAA-sponsored athletic event, you will be able to attend the game for a minimal fee (football/basketball).

Call 800-767-4207 or  email us to schedule your visit.
