Questions? See your Association Dean in Monroe Hall.

Below you will find information and links to policies, forms, resources and key College of A&S pages (in alphabetical order), all part of the accumulated insights and experiences by the deans and advisors who spend their time working with the University of Virginia College of Arts & Sciences undergraduate students.

Make frequent and liberal use of it all but never lose sight of the simple observation that your success lies not in what your classmates are doing, nor in their backgrounds, but rather in the degree to which you are prepared to think clearly about your education and your readiness to act in your own best interests.

The University of Virginia is committed to equal access and the civil rights of people with disabilities. If you have encountered a barrier to access that is weather-related or involves maintenance in a University facility, you may report it on the Report a Barrier website.

Requests for Exception to the Rules

With nearly 11,700 students enrolled in the College of Arts & Sciences, we must, of necessity, have this rather detailed and formal set of academic regulations. But situations inevitably arise in which we will consider exceptions to certain rules.

If you need to request an exception to a rule due to mitigating circumstances, you should consult your Association Dean as soon as possible. He or she will advise you on how to petition formally for an exception.

Adverse decisions by the College of Arts & Sciences deans may be appealed to the Committee on Faculty Rules – an independent committee of faculty members who are not Association Deans. Bear in mind that you have the right to petition about most, though not all, academic matters throughout your career here. More information may be found on the Appeals & Grievances page.

Archived policies and procedures can be found at the Archive of UVA Records.
