Fall Transfer Open House

We often get questions about specific open houses for those who are interested in transferring. We typically have these twice a year. The first for this school year will be on Friday, November 12. You must register and you can do that here:
Make sure you click "Transfer" and that will give you the option to register for the Nov 12 session that starts in the Newcomb Hall Theater.

The program will have three parts:
10:00am -10:45am: Transfer Information Session (tentative student panel planned)
10:45am - Noon: Walking Tour of Grounds
12:15pm - 1:00pm: Individual School Sessions

In the individual school sessions, you'll have the ability to visit the Architecture, Engineering, Education and Commerce schools. A session for the College of Arts and Sciences will take place in the Newcomb Hall Theater.

We encourage you to have lunch on grounds and visit classes on Thursday afternoon or Friday morning. Check out the Open Class List for a listing of available courses.

We hope to see you on the 12th!

Don't let this be you

As we near the application deadline and you get excited about applying to your transfer school(s), remember that we (UVA) only take students for the College of Arts and Sciences and Architectural History in January. For those interested in Commerce, Engineering, etc, you'll have to wait until March 1 for the Fall semester deadline. Hopefully, this will alleviate some confusion on your end and extra work (in contacting you) on our end.

Spring Deadline Just Ahead

Is it just me, or does it seem like this semester is speeding by? And just ahead lies the application deadline for the spring semester. You must apply using the Common Application

I just mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, but we only accept applications for the College of Arts and Sciences and Architectural History in the Spring.

We don't accept applications from freshman for the spring semester.

The College Officials Report and Secondary School Report are not required. The Instructor Evaluation or a similar recommendation is recommended.

Our notification date is December 1.
