Undergraduate Decision Plans

What is Early Action?

Early Action is a non-binding decision plan for first-year applicants, meaning applicants can consider an offer from Virginia Tech among offers from other institutions. Early Action applicants will apply by November 15. It is the most common decision plan among first-year applicants. We encourage first-year applicants to select Early Action as their decision plan if they apply on or before November 15.
