How to Withdraw an Application to UVa

It's the time of year when many schools with Early Decision programs start making their notifications. Applying to a school via Early Decision is binding, so if the school makes you an offer, you're taking it and your college search is over.

If you applied to a school with Early Decision and they have admitted you, you need to withdraw your application to UVa. To withdraw, just email with your name, high school, date of birth, and tell us that you want to withdraw your application.

Some people are emailing admission officers directly, but remember that doing that will slow things down.

Congratulations to those who have come to the end of their college search!
