Unfortunately, the application does not have a place to describe your college courses, past and present. Last Fall, we decided to put instructions on the website to make accomodations for this issue. You'll find them here: www.virginia.edu/undergradadmission/apply.html Scroll down to School Forms and Recommendations. We ask that you send in this information via mail or fax(434-924-7674).
For each course you've taken or courses you are currently taking
You should list:
1) Semester/Year of the course
2)The Course Number
3) The Course Name
4) Short Description of the course
1) Fall 2008
2) PLAP 101
3) Introduction to American Politics
4) Surveys the fundamentals of American government and politics, systematically covering the major institutions of our system (the presidency, the Congress, the courts) as well as the system's essential processes.
You can consult your school's online course catalog to get these descriptions. Providing this information will aid us in understanding your transcript. Start early, as this can be time-consuming if you have a lot of courses. Remember to include your Spring 2009 courses if you are currently in school.
