Preparing for the fall semester

July 30, 2015
Well, technically, it's still July, but here in the office we are already talking heavily about the fall. We hope you're enjoying the last few weeks of summer. As you prepare to return to school (or maybe this is your first semester of college), it's important to be aware of the pre-requisite courses necessary for transfer to UVa. We realize there are courses you'll need to take at your institution, but it's important to overlap, or incorporate what we're looking for as well.

If you go to our website at http://www.admission.virginia.edu/transfer and click on "Transfer Course Requirements" on the left-hand side, you'll see some very helpful introductory information.  Once you click through to each school -- the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Architecture, etc -- you'll see a list of exactly what you need to take.  Follow this closely.  If you would like to see how your schools courses might transfer, you can use our transfer credit analyzer.  This will show most of your institutions and many courses.  Do not fret if courses you have taken do not appear on the analyzer.  It doesn't necessarily mean that they won't transfer, but our registrars will evaluate the credit once you've paid your deposit.

Again, enjoy the rest of your summer.  The next time we write, the Common App will be up and going (opens August 1) for those of you applying for spring admission. 

Offering from the Wait List

June 12, 2015
In early June, we made offers to a few nursing applicants and some students in the engineering school.  Today, we will make the bulk of our offers in the College of Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Architecture and Batten.  We'll offer to about 80.  Most are in the College.

These decisions are announced through email, so check the email account you noted on your application. Check your junk mail too.  The decision will be posted on your SIS self-service page and that is where you'll pay your deposit.  In order to keep the process moving, you will have a short window to deposit.  Your email will give specific details. 

If you need an extension on your deposit deadline because you need to know your financial aid situation before you deposit, please reply to the email you received. We will not give you an extension if you did not submit the FAFSA and CSS Profile by the deadline of April 1.
