Welcome to Ph.D. Programs
Online applications are submitted to VCU Graduate Admissions or, for international applicants, the VCU Office of Global Education. For more information, see the Biomedical Sciences Doctoral Portal (BSDP).
On receipt by either the Graduate School or the Office of Global Education, applications are forwarded directly to the BSDP admissions commmittee for review. Recommendations for acceptance and offers of financial support are generated by the Biomedical Sciences Doctoral Portal and communicated to the Graduate School. The Graduate School transmits a notification of acceptance to the applicant confirming the recommendation. Applications are reviewed as received and acceptance decisions are communicated as they are made.
