Thinking about your next move

August is almost here! As we mentioned in the last post, we want to now turn our eyes towards signing up for the appropriate classes this fall.

Many students find themselves fumbling around in the dark when it comes to course registration.  Remember that if your goal is to transfer to UVA, you'll need to find that "nite-lite" which will prepare you for work as a UVA student.  As you gear up to return to school (or maybe this is your first semester of college), it's important to be aware of the pre-requisite courses necessary for transfer to UVa. We realize there are courses you'll need to take at your institution, but it's important to overlap, or incorporate what we're looking for as well.

If you go to our website  and click on "Transfer Course Requirements" on the left-hand side, you'll see some very helpful introductory information.  Once you click through to each school -- the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering, etc -- you'll see a general list of exactly what you need to take.  Follow this closely.  If you would like to see how your school's courses might transfer, you can use our transfer credit analyzer.  This will show most of your institutions and many courses.  Do not fret if courses you have taken do not appear on the analyzer.  It doesn't necessarily mean that they won't transfer, but our registrars will evaluate the credit once you're admitted.

There is still plenty of time, but we look forward to answering your questions with regards to locking in your schedules.

Final Wait List Update

We have filled the transfer class and won't be making any more offers for fall 2019.  This evening, an email will go out to all students who remain on the wait list in all schools.

It's hard to believe, but the deadline for spring 2019 admission to the "College" of Arts and Sciences, Urban Planning, and Architectural History is just three months away (October 1)!

If you are rising second year interested in the College, you are eligible to apply for spring admission. Keep in mind that spring is a competitive process, but students are admitted each year.

In a few weeks, we'll start the conversation again about signing up for the proper coursework to put you in the best position for a spring 2019 or a fall 2019 application.

We know the wait list closure is disappointing news for many of you, but we hope it will allow you to move on from this process and focus on next steps.
