Additional Information

The Office of Admission does not require personal interviews and does not use them in the evaluation process. The office welcomes visitors to the Grounds. In the summer and fall, information sessions are held twice a day during the week and once on Saturday mornings. During the winter, sessions are held once a day Monday through Friday. The University Guide Service conducts tours of the Grounds (beginning at the East Wing of the Rotunda) following each group talk when classes are in session. Engineering students also conduct tours of the School of Engineering and Applied Science. Reservations are not necessary for either the information sessions or the tours, which are especially directed to prospective students. For specific times and locations of these activities, please call or write the Office of Admission which is open from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M., Monday through Friday, throughout the year. All admission sessions and tours of the University of Virginia are accessible to individuals using wheelchairs. Call the Office of Admission or the Coordinator of Services for Students with Disabilities, (804) 924-7984, to request an interpreter for the hearing-impaired.
