Understand that this is a process that involves various systems and humans! You should receive a pretty automatic confirmation from the Common Application once you submit your application.
Please read the "After You Submit" instructions on this page -->http://admission.virginia.edu/admission/instructions.
It will take time for us to confirm receipt of your application here in our office. Remember that we are likely working through processing 2,000 applications for transfer. Even if you receive this confirmation after March 1, it means your application was completed on time. Do not worry if you don't get your confirmation after March 1. Just make sure you apply by March 1, to get the ball rolling.
Transcripts can come in after March 1. Just make sure you apply by March 1, to get the ball rolling.
Please allow 7-10 business days for your transcripts to be matched up with your application.
Here are some tips/reminders from our first-year Notes From Peabody blog. Good luck!
1. Add email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe senders list.We send important application updates and requests for info from these two accounts. If you put them in your address book, that will hopefully make sure our emails don't go into your junk folder. I know a lot of people use email sporadically these days, but we use it a lot. You need to keep an eye on your inbox for messages from us.
2. Keep an eye out for a SIS Login email.A few days after we download your application and get it into our system, you'll get an email about logging into SIS. SIS is where you will monitor your application status for both admission and financial aid. On notification day, you'll also check your decision in SIS.
3. Your application will probably be incomplete when you log in.
At this point, most applications are incomplete. Please do not worry and do your best not to call our office! As long as you submitted your application in time, everything will be okay.
