Please use this post to ask questions if you have been offered admission.
Congratulations! As I said in my previous post, you will receive an offer letter (modest in size) in the mail. We never promise admission to a particular major. You have been admitted to the school to which you’ve applied. Major declaration and planning will occur at orientation.
Your $400 admissions deposit can be paid online. This goes towards your first semester’s tuition. Below your online “letter,” you should see buttons to accept or decline our offer of admission. Clicking “YES” will not completely secure your spot in the class. You will need to pay your $400 deposit to set it in stone. You can pay with a credit card (we do not accept VISA) or with an e-check. As specified in the letter, you will have until May 15th to put down a deposit. Financial aid information will start to go out next week. We do not have open houses for transfer admits. You are welcome to visit and look around, but keep in mind that our students and faculty are in the midst of final exams.
As far as the next steps go, 72 hours after you deposit, you should be able to take U.Va.’s responsible computing quiz, officially set up your email account and register for orientation. Housing and dining information will take a little longer to come. It is so important to keep an eye on both your old and new email addresses. EVERYTHING happens on email. Don’t miss important deadlines by ignoring these accounts. Your academic credit will not be evaluated until you pay your deposit and send in your final transcript. This evaluation is ongoing until summer orientation.
If you decide not to come to UVa, please be sure to decline the offer using the other button-- the "NO" button. We and our wait listed students would really appreciate this courtesy.
Lastly, keep up the good work. We’ve admitted you under the assumption that you will continue to show strong grades. You’ve come this far. Let’s keep it up! Feel free to come back here for moral support during that last final exam or paper.
