Our program is structured in two parts:
Info Session & Individual Meeting
Here’s how to participate. Please read all of the following instructions before scheduling a meeting!
Step 1: Schedule a meeting
You can schedule an in-person, phone, or Skype meeting and our system will show you all available appointments in real time.
Pay close attention to the confirmation letter you will receive as it contains instructions for the following steps!
Step 2: Attend an information session or watch our webinar
You MUST attend the Admission Liaison Program Info Session or view the webinar as a mandatory prerequisite for your Individual Meeting. In this session, we provide perspective on the general admission process and timelines, reveal stats from most recent admission cycle, and discuss the profile of a competitive legacy applicant.
In-person sessions are held at Alumni Hall on Mondays and Fridays from 9–10AM (be sure to check our list of exceptions first). If you have an in-person appointment with us on a Monday or a Friday, we will assume your family will attend the in-person Info Session the same day and no separate appointment is needed. If you are not able to attend a session in person, you can view this content via webinar (your appointment confirmation letter will contain the link).
Step 3: Bring or send us your unofficial transcript and school profile
Transcripts and school profiles are REQUIRED for your individual meeting and form the core of the service we provide to you. This meeting provides detailed feedback on your student’s personal academic performance and goals, and serves as a supplement to advice from your student’s guidance counselor.
If you are meeting with us in person, you may bring your documents with you. If you are meeting with us remotely, please email your documents to ALP@virginia.edu at least 24 hours in advance.
Ready to get started?
Because the Admission Liaison Program (ALP) is a preparatory program, our fall meetings with high school seniors are limited. There is no information the ALP can provide students for enhancing their application within two months before the application due date, and we do not meet with students after applications are submitted.
- October 15—The ALP does not meet with seniors after October 15th if the student is applying Early Decision.
- November 1—The ALP does not meet with seniors for an initial meeting after November 1st of their senior year.
If you are a middle school student, wait to see us in a few years. Meanwhile, email the ALP for student and parent guides about the middle school years.
If you’re coming to Charlottesville, you may also be interested in scheduling a general UVA information session or a guided tour, or sitting in on a class. Please visit the Office of Undergraduate Admission’s site for more information.
