Planning a Visit?

Hello folks!

We are in the thick of it this month with application review (as well as our admitted student days for the first-year applicants) and know that you might be thinking of making a visit to grounds once you receive your acceptance!

Decisions on transfer applications will be released by May 1st, with a deposit deadline of May 15th you'll have two weeks to weigh your options for next fall. If you're looking to come visit grounds for a tour in that two week window, there's a few things you'll want to keep in mind:

You are certainly welcome to make the trip, but like you, students and faculty will be in the midst of final exams. Grounds (albeit warm) will look a little different and faculty won't be accessible. We would encourage you to instead visit in the second half of April. We, the admissions office will be hosting spring breaking high schoolers from all over the country, but we would be happy to see you as well!

Feel free to take a tour(skip the information session which is mostly for high school students) and sit in on a class. For information on this, check out our page here.

While this post encourages you to visit before decisions come out, please understand that we do not require prospective transfers to visit, we do not offer interviews, and coming to UVA will have no impact on your admissions decision.  That's called "demonstrated interest" and we do not practice this policy. This would merely be an informational visit for YOU and your college search process.
