Testing information

Most graduate programs consider scores from common and relevant tests, although standard entrance examinations are not required by the Graduate School at VCU.

To check if your specific program requires an entrance exam, use the program search feature on the Bulletins website. If your native language is not English, you must submit scores for the Test of English as a Foreign Language in addition to any other test scores required.

Official scores must be reported directly to the Office of Admissions by testing agencies — an official copy must be received before a final offer of admission can be made. The school code for admission testing is 5570.

To register for a test or to request that an official report be sent to the Office of Admissions, refer to the following websites:
