Greetings from Charlottesville,

We're excited and honored that you are considering the University of Virginia as your potential college home!

Each year we hear from students like you who are interested in learning more about UVA as they make decisions about college. If you do choose to apply to UVA, please know that we will review your application with care and respect. We understand how stressful and laborious it can be to search for, apply to, and await decisions from colleges. It is our privilege and responsibility to consider everything you submit to the admission committee, so that we get to know you as a student and person. Your academic performance in high school provides helpful information, but we do not make admission decisions based on grades and numbers alone. We strive to build a varied, complex, and dynamic class of students who will thrive at UVA, strengthen our community, and make a difference in the lives of others.

Thank you for finding your way to UVA, and for taking the time to learn more about who we are and what we have to offer. We are here to help you - students, families, and the communities who support them - navigate the college search and application process.

If you need anything or have questions, please call 434-982-3200 or email [email protected]. We look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes,

University of Virginia Office of Undergraduate Admission
