Admitted Student

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 the spring, the Office of Admission will host many exciting virtual and in-person events to help you learn more about the UVA community and all it has to offer. More information about these events is available in your portal! 


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 incoming class.

If you opted to have testing considered with your application, you must request an official score report from the SAT or ACT to verify your self-reported scores. Score reports and final transcripts should arrive in our office before July 1.


All first-year 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 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 in the late spring. 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.

All new students are expected to attend Summer Orientation. At orientation you learn about the University, ask questions, meet with an academic advisor, sign up for classes, and get to know people. You have the chance to speak with representatives from various offices and handle logistical details like familiarizing yourself with Grounds, getting your student ID, and choosing a dining plan. Please refer to the Orientation and New Student Program site for details about registration and session dates.

If you earned AP, IB, or dual enrollment credits in high school, you may be eligible to receive transferrable credit. After you send your official AP score report and/or IB diploma and/or dual enrollment transcript, you will receive an official evaluation from the Registrar's Office at summer orientation. In the interim, please refer to the College's Transfer Credit Policy page to view estimated equivalencies.


UVA offers need-based aid, which is based on a family's finances. If you'd like us to consider you for all types of aid, you'll want to fill out two aid applications: the CSS Profile and the FAFSA.

The CSS Profile

The CSS Profile allows us to consider you for need-based grants and scholarships that come directly from UVA.

When is it available? Right now

When should I complete it? As soon as possible. The sooner you complete the CSS Profile, the sooner we'll be able to start working on your financial aid offer. There's a cost to complete the Profile, but you may be eligible for a waiver.



The FAFSA allows us to consider you for need-based aid available from the Federal government.

When is it available? December 31

When should I complete it? As soon as it's available, but no later than March 1, 2024. We'll need the FAFSA to finalize your aid offer so we hope you'll fill it out as soon as you're able to. Get a head start now by setting up your FSA ID.


If you have questions about financial aid, we're here to help. You can connect with Student Financial Services by email or phone at (434) 982 - 6000. More information can also be found on the Student Financial Services website.
