AP & Admission Policy

From the college: Students most likely to gain admission to Virginia Tech are taking the most challenging college preparatory curriculum available to them, and doing well in that program. We look for students to take advantage of the AP courses offered at their high schools, especially those most important to their intended majors, and we expect them to perform well in those courses.
