The University of Virginia is a college partner with QuestBridge. If you are selected as a QuestBridge Finalist and wish to rank UVA as one of your twelve choices, your QuestBridge application will be forwarded to UVA's Office of Undergraduate Admission. In addition to the QuestBridge application, however, UVA requires some additional information.
The following documents must be submitted to UVA's Office of Undergraduate Admission by November 1:
Please note that if matched with UVA, the contract (admission) is binding and students are expected to attend UVA the following fall. In addition, students must withdraw all other applications. During the evaluation process for the Match, the UVA admissions committee will only consider your QuestBridge application and the UVA supplement.
Financial Aid Requirements: All students that rank UVA through the Match must submit the following financial aid information by November 1, 2021:
Tax materials should be uploaded through the IDOC system.
Yes. If you are matched, congratulations! Please remember to withdraw all applications you've submitted to other colleges or universities. Now, instead of waiting on admissions decisions, you'll be able to spend the rest of your senior year focusing on finishing strong and looking forward to coming to Charlottesville!
Matched students will be notified by QuestBridge in early December and contacted by UVA shortly thereafter.
Yes. If you submit the QuestBridge application to UVA, you must complete the UVA Supplement in your MyUVA Application Portal to be considered an active applicant. Please know that you cannot submit both the QuestBridge application and the Common Application.

No. Match candidates, like all applicants to UVA, are evaluated in the same rigorous and holistic manner and all applicants are held to the same high standards.
If you are a QuestBridge Finalist or Non-Finalist who submits the QuestBridge application to UVA, the application fee will be waived.
No. If you are a QuestBridge Finalist applying through the National College Match, all materials submitted as part of your QuestBridge Application will be reviewed in your application process, and you do not need to submit additional recommendation letters or school information.
In response to COVID-19, UVA will not require applicants to submit the SAT, ACT for the 2021-22 application cycle. This applies to first-year and transfer applicants. Students who are unable or choose not to submit test scores will not be disadvantaged in any way. Students who wish to include testing as part of their application may continue to do so, but those who do not will be at no disadvantage in the application review. Students who choose to submit testing may choose to take either the ACT or the SAT.
No, applicants will not have an advantage in the admissions process simply by submitting ACT or SAT results. The submission of test results will be viewed only as one additional piece of information among the many factors that UVA will consider in their continued practice of a holistic and contextual review process.
If you are a QuestBridge Finalist applying through the National College Match, the latest date candidates may take the SAT is October 2021. For the ACT, the last date is September 2021. You may self-report your scores. If you choose to send official scores as part of your application, please do not use the ''rush'' option for sending scores; your scores will make it in time without being rushed.
The University of Virginia encourages you to convey the breadth and depth of your extra-curricular pursuits within your admission application, including the full name of each organization in which you participate and, if appropriate, a brief description of your involvement. We do not accept resumes, research papers, or supplemental application items that do not fit the criteria for arts supplements.
No. If you are a QuestBridge Finalist and you are participating in the Match, you are not permitted to apply Early Decision to UVA.
The Match is designed for students who are seriously interested in several QuestBridge college partners and/or who feel that they will benefit from the additional information contained in the QuestBridge application. If you are a QuestBridge Finalist and the University of Virginia is the only school you are enthusiastic about, you have two options. Your first option would be to not rank schools in the Match and apply to UVA directly under the Early Decision plan. The second option would be to participate in the Match and rank only one school, knowing that your chances of being matched are much higher if you rank several QuestBridge college partners.
Please submit these materials as soon as you are notified you are a Finalist.

Noncitizens and international students are an integral part of the university, and UVA is deeply committed to enrolling a student body that includes students from around the world. However, UVA will consider students who are US Citizens or Permanent Residents for the Match. Virginia-domiciled students with either DACA or undocumented status are also eligible for the Match for the 2022-2023 academic year.
Completing and submitting all required applications and additionally requested documents by the priority date (February 1, 2022) increases the likelihood that you'll receive your preliminary financial aid offer much sooner than if you wait until March 1st. All financial aid application materials must be submitted by March 1, 2022: CSS Profile, FAFSA, 2020 W-2's and Federal tax returns, Non-Custodial Profile (if applicable). If you are an eligible applicant for financial aid and submit your FAFSA and Profile by March 1, 2022, we will meet all your demonstrated need, even if your other application materials arrive after the deadline. If you submit your FAFSA and/or Profile after March 1, 2022, you may still receive some grants. In recent years, we have been able to give grants to late applicants, but we can't always promise to be able to do so.
In general, two letters are sufficient to give us a sense of who you are as a student and as a person. If, however, you feel strongly that someone (perhaps a religious leader, a close advisor, or an employer) has the capacity to add new and different insight or information to your application, please feel free to submit one additional letter. It is strongly recommended to not ask another teacher to write your supplementary letter.
UVA does not conduct informational or evaluative essays. We encourage you to include all pertinent and contextual information within your application.
