#UVA Early Action Notification Update!

The stated times for decision releases are mid-December for Early Decision, mid-February for Early Action, and April 1 for Regular Decision. I'm so happy to share that we are finishing the Early Action ahead of schedule and will post results to student portals tomorrow evening.


Early Action notification will be the evening of 
Friday, February 5, 2021! 

This is official. Please do not call our office to confirm it. The decisions will be added to applicant portals in the evening so most students are checking after school hours (there are fewer people on the system after the business day is over).

I'll be able to share some statistics about the Early Action process in the coming days. As always, I'm happy to answer your questions in the comments.


BTW, the Class of 2025 Facebook group is here if you want to chat with others students. There are a few current UVA students in there to help out, too.

This is a portal of sorts, right?
