The Office of Admissions at UVA Wise realizes that the COVID-19 virus has made your college search trying, during this unprecedented and trying time for the nation and the world. We want you to know that we are here to work with you and that, together, we will get through this.
In order to ease your transition to college during this time, the Office of Admissions has done the following:
- We’ve lifted the test requirement for all incoming freshmen (or transfers with less than 30 credits.) We’re also lifting SAT and ACT requirements for applicants for Fall 2021 admissions cycle.
- We’re continuing to award new students financial aid, grants, and scholarships, even through the Within Reach initiative, which provides full tuition and fees to Virginia families making $40,000 or less. However, financial aid funds are limited, so please apply for admission for Fall 2020 as soon as possible.
- We’re offering socially distant tours of our campus for families and small groups. Schedule your visit.
- We’re offering one-on-one appointments with our staff. Schedule a chat session via phone, text, or video call with your admissions counselor or financial aid at UVA Wise any time.
