Can you believe a whole semester has passed? Here in Undergraduate Admissions we have certainly been busy and are now welcoming a chance to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year – winter break! Beginning Friday, December 18, 2009, our offices will be closed to the public and we’ll reopen on Monday, January 4, 2010.
Keep in mind that our application deadline for Fall 2010 is January 15. While we hope that you relax and regroup over winter break, we encourage you to continue working on your application. How nice would it be to complete your application and start the new year with a clean slate? Think of all of the stress you’ll avoid by not waiting until the last minute, and the peace of mind you’ll have knowing that your information is complete. It definitely sounds like a good idea to us!
Another smart idea? Completing your application electronically! It’s easy to access and complete our online application. Not to mention, it’s more cost effective for you and allows you to check the status of your application at your own convenience (but keep in mind we don’t give admissions decisions online). This way, you can double check that we’ve received all of the required material and documentation, like your official high school transcripts and test scores. Our application can be found at www.ugrad.vcu.edu/apply. Just remember to jot down your username and password so you can log back in.
We wish you the happiest holiday season! See you in the New Year!
