The Strength of the VMI Relationship

There is a closeness at VMI that is rare in American colleges. Much is shared among members of a class – the boredom of guard duty and penalty tours, intense preparation for parades and inspections, late-night study sessions, downtime in barracks. And when the celebrations come – the ceremony to receive your class ring, for instance – you’ll find that the people you’re celebrating with, your brother rats, are the ones closest to you, who know life as you know it, who share your values.

Open House

Open House Visits allow high school seniors and juniors to visit Post and talk with faculty, admission counselors, and cadets.

At this time, due to the closure of post to visitors, open house registration is temporarily on hold. Registrants for the February 13th open house will receive information from Admissions regarding a virtual session. Information for those who have already registered for events in March will be forthcoming.


Personal Interview

Personal interviews are a good opportunity to speak one-on-one with an admissions counselor and learn more about VMI.
