International Applicant Info

The international applicant deadline is April 10th.

In addition to the Brandcenter application, international applicants are also required to submit the VCU Office of Global Education on-line application (and supporting documents) available here  (In the Personal Statement field you can enter "Please see Brandcenter application." You do not need to write an essay for this section.)

International candidates must hold the equivalent of a four-year U.S. bachelor's degree. However, if your degree was from a three-year program and you are eligible to pursue graduate education in your country of citizenship, you are eligible for Brandcenter admission. 

International Brandcenter candidates are required to have a minimum TOEFL score of 600 on the paper-based test, 250 on the computer-based test, or 100 on the internet-based test. TOEFL score of 600 on the paper-based test, 250 on the computer-based test, or 100 on the internet-based test. Please see the TOEFL website for more information about taking the test.

The minimum acceptable IELTS score is 6.5.

Because ours is a communications program, we will not consider applications from people who score lower than the minimum required TOEFL/IELTS scores.

Please contact VCU's Global Education Office if you have questions about international admissions.
