It's Almost May 1, but...

Decisions will be released this evening! Please make sure you read this entire post.  You wanted an update, so please read it. While we've been commenting on our last post, it might have been a little quiet on our end. That's only because we were happily charged with reading 2,400 transfer applications immediately after reading 32,000+ first year applications plus greeting all of our great March/April visitors. We are so excited to complete our transfer process. One year, there was a hitch and we had to release on May 2, so announcing this any sooner would have been risky.  We are just about ready, so you should be able to see decisions sometime after 5PM today.


Let’s review how you can see your official decision.  In order to view it, you must be able to get into your UVa SIS account. If you don’t remember or can’t find your SIS login information, use the links on the login page to generate a new password.  If you need additional assistance, you can call the UVa help-desk at (434) 924- HELP or toll-free at (866) 469-4866. 

Please do not overwhelm the system by opening multiple windows.  Take your time and use one window.  If you need to give it a rest, walk around your house or apartment one time and come back to it. Do some reading, dishes, laundry and let the system relax as well. Your decision will be there 2 minutes, 20 minutes or 2 hours from that point. 

The decision pages online will give you limited information – Offer, Waitlist, or Not Offered. Once again, we do not email decisions.  Detailed information for admitted students will arrive in the mail next week.  In an effort to be environmentally conscious, we only mail letters to admitted students.  In addition, please look out for important inserts in your letters if you applied to McIntire, Architecture or the Curry Teaching Program.  Many of these students will have additional requests or things-to-do in their letters.

We’ll be creating spaces on this blog for you to comment, similar to what you’ve seen in past years. Look out for that later this afternoon.

Thank you for reading our posts and posting your questions throughout the whole year.  There is less to cover with you all because you are already college students, but we are happy to try and address any general topics you can think of regarding becoming a student at UVa.  We DO work most weekends during our reading season of October to April, but find it’s best to let the decisions settle in and we’ll address your thoughts and inquiries next week.
