• Prospective non-degree seeking students: Go to Application and complete the “Commonwealth Campus Application”. Consult the appropriate deadlines below to determine the correct application to complete.

NOTE: Applying to the Virginia Tech graduate school under the Commonwealth Campus status enables students to take 12 semester hours before formal acceptance into a master's degree program. Each University offers specific master's degrees with little overlap. This program offers an excellent opportunity for working engineers to update skills or learn about a new technology. More information on the Commonwealth Campus

  • “Expedited Graduate Application” students will be admitted on a one-time basis under Commonwealth Campus status.  Application can be found on under Admissions on Graduate School Website.  Students wishing to continue their enrollment MUST apply again prior to the next semester using the appropriate degree-seeking or non-degree seeking application.

NOTE: Current CGEP students who are already enrolled in another CGEP institution can waive the Commonwealth Campus Application fee by getting a code from Administrator that can be recorded in the “Office Use Only” box on the supplemental (last) page of the application. To waive the Expedited Application fee, please include a memo stating you are applying to the CGEP program when submitting the form to the VT Graduate School.

  • Current CGEP students enrolled full-time from another CGEP consortia university interested in a VT course: Please complete the Application for Visiting Graduate Student. (Students enrolled part-time will need to fill out the Commonwealth Campus Application).

NOTE: CGEP students currently enrolled at another CGEP consortia university can waive the application fee by recording on the application that they are a CGEP student.
