Spring Applicants: Check your To-Do Lists

October 22, 2014
If you applied for spring 2015 transfer admission, please keep an eye on your to-do list.  If we are missing specific documents, this is where you'll find what we need.  To view your to-do list, you must log into your U.Va. Student Information System (SIS) using your U.Va. computing ID and password.  You can access your SIS account and retrieve your password here.

Let's Review One Important Detail from the GAA

September 26, 2014

If you are applying from a Virginia Community College, you may be considering the Guaranteed Admission Agreement (GAA).  There are many important details on the GAA including the fact that you cannot use it to apply for spring semester.  That's right.  See the detail below clipped from Section 1.  Now, if you are not admitted for spring and want to try again for fall, then we'll consider you for the GAA. But again, it is not open to applicants for spring admission.





The Spring Application Deadline is...

September 26, 2014
...Just around the corner!

There are a number of procedures that will occur once you submit the application.  You'll receive confirmation from Common App, but it's very important that you receive confirmation from our institution as well.  It will take 48-72 hours for your application to go through the system.

After this, you'll receive a SIS ID and password.  These are attributes you'll use to check your decision come December 1.  More importantly, it's where you'll find your to-do list. 

Your to-do list will tell you when we are looking for and when we've received required materials.  After you apply, please allow 10-14 days for your materials to be matched to your application.  This is a human and manual process and our staff works very hard to keep on top of the hundreds of documents that we receive.

Good luck everyone!
