Are you applying for fall 2018 and looking to continue to take appropriate courses ahead of applying to transfer? Be sure to keep an eye on our transfer course requirements. As many of you are already aware, these are the building blocks to a competitive application and a smooth transition to UVA.
To find out what courses transfer to UVA, be sure to check out this transfer equivalencies page.
With millions of courses out there, the College of Arts and Sciences
has added as many courses as have been taken by our former transfer
students. Just because your course isn't listed, it doesn't necessarily
mean that the course won't transfer successfully. We've also uploaded a document under our FAQs that should help prospective engineering transfers.
Taking the appropriate courses and earning strong grades are the most
important aspects of file review. Now, back to those transfer course requirements. 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, but it's highly recommended that you look to
see what UVA students are taking their first two years as well. It may
be wise to take an additional math course if that's what Psychology or
Biology is looking for. Some departments have done a great job of
speaking directly to transfers on their pages. Here are some examples -
economics, psychology, and media studies. Some give curriculum guides like chemistry and mechanical engineering.
A quick google search will give you information on curricula all over
the University. Our best applicants have planned out their schedules
using this information and it shows on transcripts.
Enjoy the rest of your break!
