The University of Virginia practices
a selective admission policy, seeking outstanding students from
throughout the United States and abroad. The Committee on Admission
endeavors to provide the University community with an academically
able, diverse, talented, and creative student body.
The committee seeks to balance
the strength of a national student body with the importance
of a university education for Virginia's best students. It does
not otherwise enforce geographical quotas or observe geographical
limitations. The committee does not consider financial need
in any way when it evaluates applicants. Upon request, the Office

Students coming directly from secondary
school to the University are admitted in the fall semester to
one of four undergraduate schools: the College of Arts and Sciences,
the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of
Architecture, or the School of Nursing. These four schools also
admit transfer students. After two academic years of college-level
work here or elsewhere, students may apply to the McIntire School
of Commerce. Students may apply to the Curry School of Education
after one or two years of college-level work. The Office of
Admission receives and reviews applications for all six undergraduate
schools and distributes information on all schools. Each school
enforces its own college course requirements for transfer applicants;
the Office of Admission will provide current descriptions of
requirements upon request.
The School of Continuing and Professional
Studies also offers a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies
(BIS) degree for students who have completed two years of college
work at a regionally accredited college or university. Applications
for the BIS program are received and reviewed by that office;
