Spring Decisions

Spring decisions (the REAL ones) should show online at 5pm EST tonight. Letters will be mailed tomorrow.

As you all know, the spring process is much more competitve than the fall process. 15% of the applicants were admitted this year.

If you find that you are not offered admission, and you are a student in your 3rd or 4th semester at a four-year school or in community college, you have the opportunity to apply again for Fall. You should tell us in writing that you want to "roll over" your application for Fall 2010 consideration. There will be instructions on how to do this in your decision letter.

There is no wait list during the Spring process.

Those who are offered have until December 10 to notify us of your decision.

We truly thank all of you for your interest in UVA.

Did you apply for Fall 2009?

If you did, you will not receive a new SIS email with instructions for your username and password. You'll have to dig up the old email. This will take you to your account where you can check on your materials and your decision come December 1.

If you applied for the first time for Spring 2010 and didn't receive anything regarding the Student Information System, you should call (434) 924-HELP.

High School Transcripts

I might be preaching to the choir here, but please know that high school transcripts are required. We are finding that a number of the applications do not have these. Our processing department is beginning to send emails to request missing parts. Don't forget to check your email using the address you entered into your application.

And remember, your to-do list on SIS will tell you what's missing as well.

Always Keep an Eye on your Email

This is just general advice about checking email. Please make sure you check the address you listed on your application regularly. This is our favorite way of communicating with you. If anything is missing or we have questions about your application, we will email you. Sometimes, we're unlucky and our correspondence goes into your Spambox. Please check that as well. Because we are all operating with such a short time frame, you wouldn't want an email dangling out there in cyberspace.
