The Honors College Guaranteed Admission Program allows some honors students to gain admission to certain of the university’s professional health sciences or graduate programs. (Visit honors.vcu.edu for specific program information.) Honors students in the GA Program generally may enter the program of their choice without competing via general admission, provided they fulfill the requirements for graduating with University Honors and satisfy all of the requirements of the GA Program.

Guaranteed Admission Program application procedures

To be accepted into a GA Program, a student must be accepted by the university, by The Honors College and by the admissions committee of the program the student wishes to enter. A separate application for guaranteed admission is required. The admissions committee may require an interview. The application (postmark) deadline for the GA Program (all health sciences) is Nov. 15 of the year prior to the year the student is planning to enroll at VCU.
