When enrollments must be limited for any curriculum, first priority will be given to all qualified students who reside in the political subdivisions supporting the College, provided such students apply for admission to the program by the scheduled deadline. The priority list is as follows:
- residents of the political subdivisions supporting the College, (the counties of Augusta, Highland, and Rockingham and the cities of Harrisonburg, Staunton, and Waynesboro),
- other Virginia residents, in-state
- out-of-state and resident alien students.
