Do you periodically check the email address you gave to us?

In this day and age, the we do almost 100% of our communication via email.  We want to tell you what's going on at UVa, what's going on with our process and we want to be here for you in case you forgot to submit parts of your application. Yes, we can be flexible at times.  Sometimes snail mail gets lost as well.  Let us communicate with you.

**It is really important that you check the email address that you put on your transfer application.**

If you would like to change your email address in our system, let us know.  This address is also very important when it comes to financial aid and setting you up for orientation.  Until you become a UVa student, we very much rely on what you gave us on your common application.  Thanks for helping us help you!

All the latest from Peabody

-Many of you many not have received your Student Information System (SIS) username and passwords if you applied over the weekend.  There was a glitch with the upload from Common Application to our side.  This will be fixed overnight.  After that time, you should receive confirmation from us.

-There will be a missing parts email going out to 160 applicants today.   These 160 students did not submit the writing supplement that I mentioned in my last post. They will be given a short turnaround to go in and complete the application.

-Please allow 7-10 days for your transcripts to be matched up to your application if you applied within the last two weeks.

-We have also found 100 people who did not enter in their high school information.  If this is you, please write to transferadmission@virginia.edu with the following information.

Your Name, Date of Birth, High School, High School Address and the dates in which you attended.  If you attended two or more high schools, please include this information as well.   We require your high school transcript or GED score report if you decide to apply with us.
