Gathering application materials while home for the holidays

Hopefully, final exams are over for you and you can rest easy. If you are applying for fall 2016, you'll remember that one of the required documents is your high school transcript.

Just a quick tip: while you are home over the break, or taking some downtime away from home, take the time to contact your high school when it's back in session in January.  You can order your high school transcript and have it sent to our office even before you've applied. This will give you a nice start in submitting your entire application.

Have a great holiday everyone!

Are you a student at Reynolds Community College?

Did you miss the college fairs in the Richmond area last month? Want to learn more about UVa? Well, come out to the Transfer Information Night sponsored by the Parham Road campus of Reynolds Community College. Last year, our rep had a good showing of high school students and this year, we'd like to see more transfers.

For more information, go here:

We'll see you out there!

Spring 2016 Transfer Decisions

All transfer decisions were posted online last night.  Remember that you have to check your SIS account to get your decision. You'll find information about this in your UVa confirmation email. We will post all decisions online, but we will only be mailing letters to admitted students.  A student is either offered or not offered.  There is no wait list process for spring admission.

Do not call the office to ask for your decision.  We do not give out decisions over the phone. To get to your account, go here and click on the "SIS Login."  If you don't remember your account information, check your submission confirmation email, then seek out the help information on the left-hand side of that same page.  

About 15% of applicants were admitted. If you were not admitted, you might have the opportunity to "roll over" your application for fall 2016 consideration.  Please follow the directions in your online letter.  NOTE: This option is not available for students who are entering their sixth semester at a four-year institution (this is not a community college) next spring.  Unfortunately, these students are no longer eligible to come to UVa. 

Best of luck to everyone!
