Undergraduate Admission

Congrats Class of 2027!

Selecting the right college requires asking the important questions. Perhaps you’re wondering if you can study abroad, if you can pursue multiple (and unrelated) areas of study, or even if you’ll receive guaranteed funding for your internships and research projects. At Richmond, the answer to these questions (and many, many more) is enthusiastically yes.

Don’t just take our word for it - see it for yourself! Register for our admitted student events and discover your promising future without that lingering if. We think you’ll like what you find.
