In response to the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19, the University has made the decision to cancel all on Grounds visit programming through mid-April and possibly the remainder of the spring term. This includes information sessions, tours, special group visits, and admitted events. Please note all on Grounds admitted student events have been cancelled at this time.
The University will reevaluate its position on this in early April and we will provide an update at that time. Our admission deans are available to talk by phone (434-982-3200) or email if you have questions about the University or our admission process. We will continue to provide updates on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and the admission blog) and on our institutional coronavirus webpage. This decision was made by University leadership after consulting with leading medical experts. It is our hope that these efforts and this decision will best protect the health of our students, staff, faculty, and visitors and assist in slowing the spread of the virus.
At UVA, we are monitoring developments each day and we are working with global health experts to keep our students and community members informed and healthy.
If you are an admitted student, you may have questions about how the spread of COVID-19 might impact your ability to travel to Charlottesville, obtain a visa, or even enroll at the University in August. To best assist you over the coming months we have developed a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for incoming first-year students that we hope will answer many of your questions. This FAQ will be updated regularly when new information becomes available or new plans are announced.
