UVA Orientation Leaders

Congratulations! You've been invited to join our community and now it’s time to imagine yourself here. This is your chance to own your future, to create a life filled with exciting opportunities and to start your pursuit of better.


Throughout April, our office will be hosting many exciting events to help you learn more about the UVA community and all it has to offer. To learn more about these events please visit our Virtual Days on the Lawn page.


If you're ready to join our community, log into your application portal and complete the reply form. Pay your enrollment deposit and you'll be an official member of the UVA incoming class.

If you did not submit official testing during the application process, you must request a score report from the SAT or ACT if you did not apply Test-Optional. Score reports and final transcripts should arrive in our office before July 1.


Students admitted to UVA as undergraduates can request to take a gap year after they complete high school, prior to enrolling at the University. To request consideration for a gap year, students must pay their enrollment deposit by May 1 to secure their place in the class and fill out the form in their MyUVA Application Portal, located near the bottom. The deadline for the form is July 1. Students will be notified if their gap year is approved within two weeks. Requests should include a tentative gap year plan for the coming year.


The Office of Orientation and New Student Events will be in touch with next steps. Around May 1, you can begin working on the next steps outlined on the Summer Orientation website. You'll need to work through the responsible computing tutorial to activate your UVA email account and complete other tasks to prepare for enrolling at UVA.


There is a more information about the Fall 2020 term on the University's Return to Grounds website. Faculty members have drafted a policy on external credit transfer in light of the change in grading at many colleges.
