Applying to the Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences (BMVS) Graduate Program


To apply for admission to our MS or PhD degree program, you must apply online using the Virginia Tech Graduate School Applicant System.

You must have official TOEFL scores (for international students) and GRE scores sent to the Virginia Tech Graduate School (when taking a test, use college code 00589) before you can be considered for admission.

Steps to Graduate Program Acceptance

  1. The Graduate Affairs Committee reviews an applicant’s qualifications and recommends acceptance.
  2. Candidates are matched with a faculty advisor (major professor). This process is helped if you contact professors you are interested in working with prior to applying.
  3. A source of financial support—stipend and tuition—is identified.
  4. After these steps are completed, successful applicants are offered admission.
