Please read the instructions below before attempting to complete the High School Application.

Please note: Charlottesville-area high school juniors and seniors wishing to live at home and take an undergraduate class outside of the U-adVAnce program may do so.  Please indicate your choice on the application.  Commuter students pay tuition and comprehensive fee and are not eligible to participate in U-adVAnce workshops or field trips.

High school students accepted in the summer are considered visiting undergraduate students and are enrolled in classes with other undergraduate students.  Only rising juniors and seniors with excellent academic records are eligible to enroll for summer classes.  With the exception of students accepted into the Summer Language Institute, high school students may take only one class per term. Students should choose a course offered through the College of Arts and Sciences in the 1000- to 2000-level for which there are no prerequisites.

Living arrangements are the responsibility of the parent and guardian and must be in place before the student arrives for summer.
