Please note that the person managing this blog is currently away from the office due to an unexpected emergency. There have been a number of questions regarding the end of waitlist activity. At this time, the waitlist has not been released and will not likely be completed until mid-July. If you have further questions at this time, please direct them to the office of admission at 434-982-3200. Thank you for your continued interest in attending the University of Virginia and have a nice week.

Final Transcripts for Admitted Students

If you are an admitted student, and you're looking to see if we've received the transcript containing your spring grades, please look at your SIS account. We are getting a lot of calls and emails from students wanting us to check this out, but if you're admitted, you can easily tell from your To-Do List. If you have misplaced or can't remember this information, you should contact the 24-hour Help Desk at 434-924-HELP (4357) or

Waitlist Update #2

Well, the time has come. A batch of wait list notifications will go out tonight via email. Remember to check the email address you gave us on your application. In due time, your SIS account will reflect this change. Please follow the instructions when it comes to deadlines and procedures. If you are not interested in accepting the offer, let us know. This will help us move along in the process. You will receive a letter in a few days, but you should act upon the offer through your SIS account.

This likely won't be the only day notifications go out, but when we close the wait list at the end of June, everyone will get a letter to say the process is complete.

I will update you with more when I can.

Waitlist Update

We are just beginning to move to the waitlist. We expect to take 50-100 students per usual. Most will come from the College of Arts and Sciences. Keep reading.

As we begin to look at files, we are not seeing the final transcripts(including spring grades) that are necessary for aiding us with this process. It is very rare that we would make a final decision on a student without these grades.

If you haven't already done so, please send your official transcript to our office. The address is UVA Office of Admission, P.O. Box 400160, Charlottesville, VA 22904.

While I realize I might be preaching to the choir, it never hurts to get a reminder :)
