No other documentation is accepted other than the request form which is available beginning June 5th. for more information, please see the following fee reimbursement information page.

VMCAS Application Payment

Credit Card Payment:

To pay the application fee, enter the appropriate information on the payment screen. Make sure you print the resulting receipt when you submit . Our financial processing is secure and easy to use. VMCAS accepts only Visa and MasterCard. VMCAS colleges will not review applications if fees have not been submitted.

Supplemental Applications and Fees

Some participating VMCAS institutions require a supplemental application and/or fee. Supplemental fees should be paid directly to the institution (Do not send your supplemental fees to VMCAS). Please refer to the individual college specification pages to determine if a supplemental fee and/or application is required and the deadline for each school.
