What are the requirements for admission into the dual degree program at Virginia Tech?

The student should have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 to be accepted into the Bachelors program. During the summer between the student's first and second year or the second and third year at Longwood University, a student preparing for this program should attend Virginia Tech as a special summer student and take introductory engineering courses required of engineering students at Virginia Tech. These are

ENGE 1024, Engineering Exploration (2 credits) and

ENGE 1104, Exploration of the Digital Future (2 credits) - Reguired for CPE and EE

or

ENGE 1114, Exploration of Engieering Design (2 credits) - Required for AE, ME, )E, and recommended for all other majors)

These courses may also be completed at another, pre-approved institution, including some schools in the Virginia Community College System.

What additional courses are required before transfer?

It is highly recommended that all students take Longwood courses Math 280 (Linear Algebra) and CMSC 160 (Introduction to Algorithmic Design I) before transfer. Also, Virignia Tech currently accepts only certain courses from several of the Longwood general education goals, so the prospective student should plan carefully with their academic advisor. View the checklist (Dual Degree Engineering Checklist for Virginia Tech) for help in planning course work at Longwood University for transfer but please keep in mind that each engineering discipline has different degree requirements
