This is a difficult time for everyone, and we hope all of you are taking care of yourselves and your families. We’re sorry we won’t be able to meet as many of you in person as we normally would, but the Admissions Office will be back up and running as soon as this is over. Given what everyone is going through, we will also be as flexible as possible. So don’t worry – and please reach out with any questions. Find answers to some of the most common questions.


Welcome! At UVA, diversity allows people to come together in mutual respect to share ideas and learn from one another. When that happens, we believe that everyone on campus benefits, and we believe that students leave the University with a richer and expanded view of the world around them.

Diversity means more than just welcoming students with many different backgrounds. It means making sure that all students feel at home at UVA and that they all have the same opportunities once they are enrolled at the University.

As you begin to evaluate colleges, please feel free to contact the Outreach Office. We will be more than happy to answer your questions about UVA and college admission. We know you have many important decisions to make about your future, and want to be as helpful as possible. The best of luck to you this year and we look forward to being in contact with you.
