Let's talk about decisions: The Offer

Admitted students can use this entry to talk. I imagine you might also want to join the UVa Class of 2015 Facebook group to chat with your future classmates.

You have until May 1st to make your decision about whether you'll come to UVa or not. If you decide to go elsewhere at some point in the coming weeks, I hope you'll decline the offer immediately via your self-service page. That will allow us to move to the waiting list more quickly.

Just below your letter are buttons to accept or decline your offer. If you accept, you will see a button to let you pay your tuition deposit online*.  After you deposit, check out the Summer Orientation website for a list of things you'll need to do to prepare for your first year.   Don't forget that you must have a final transcript sent to the Office of Admission!

Congratulations! We are so lucky to have you considering UVa!

*We have an e-check system for deposits.  You'll type in the numbers on the bottom of your check, much like the system used when filing taxes.  The system will take certain kinds of credit cards, but it's primarily an e-check system.  Be sure to turn off your pop-up blocker when you go to pay the deposit!
