Attention Seniors- Transcript Update
If you are applying to schools through the Common App, you MUST select "The Common Application" as the transcript destination on Parchment (rather than the college name). This will ensure that your transcript is delivered properly and on-time.
In addition, if you need a letter of recommendation from your counselor, please remember to complete the Counselor Recommendation Request form and parent Brag Sheet, found on the Seniors page on the left sidebar. You will also need to add your counselor on the "Recommenders" page on Common App!

The Society of Women Engineers at the University of Virginia invites high school seniors and juniors to apply to our High School Visitation program on Saturday, November 19, 2016. The program gives young women a comprehensive look at engineering fields and UVA’s engineering curriculum through informative speakers and hands-on design activities. The program is designed to benefit participants with all levels of engineering experience, but we particularly target those students who are not yet familiar with the field and may be interested in applying to engineering schools or pursuing a STEM career.
To apply, students should complete the HSV Fall 2016 Application. This fall session particularly targets high school seniors, but juniors can also apply. Students who have previously applied to HSV, are in the targeted grade level, and demonstrate a strong interest in engineering through their essay will receive priority acceptance and priority consideration for an overnight stay.
The attached flier provides more information about the event and instructions on how to apply online through our website.
The application must be completed online by 11:59 pm on Saturday, October 22, 2016.
