Virtual Transfer Information Sessions Starting in August

Hello Everyone,

We'll be hosting Virtual Information Sessions via Zoom for the foreseeable future on the first Friday of every month at 12pm eastern. The first of these will be next week on the 7th!

The sessions will review pertinent information to the transfer application process as well as a panel of current students to chat about what it's like to attend UVA. There's a nice Q&A function with Zoom that will allow the admission staff and students to answer any and all things you're curious about the school and the transfer admission process.

The signups for these sessions will be found here:

July Updates

Good morning, everyone! I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday weekend. I have a few pieces of information for admitted fall transfers and the waitlisted applicants as well:

-We're still waiting on many incoming enrolling students' final transcripts for this past spring semester. If you haven't sent an official copy to the admission office, please do so ASAP!

-If you were admitted and intend to take a gap year before enrolling, you still need to have a final transcript from this previous semester submitted

-The waitlist is still not officially closed as we continue to balance the enrollment totals with the goals for the class along with delays in final transcripts received, final grade review, and an influx in gap year deferral process. The pandemic's impact on both transcripts and the gap year requests has pushed this back a couple of weeks longer than we all would like, but I would anticipate the waitlist beings officially closed within the next week or two.

-Great Resources for Admitted Students: Dean Ozment and others in the College of Arts and Sciences have compiled a great list of resources for incoming transfers at the following link. It includes FAQs and tips for incoming students, information on advising, and details about summer course registration!
