Sometimes students are accepted at UVA but wish to defer their admission to take a “gap year” between graduating from high school and starting at UVA. Students who are accepted at UVA and wish to defer their admission while taking a “gap year” must make that request to the Office of Admission

The College has a few policies that apply to students who take a gap year. Such students: 

  1. may not matriculate at another college or university or they will forfeit admission

  2. may bring in no more than 6 credits per semester

  3. are not guaranteed that the College of A&S will accept the credit earned

  4. may not complete general education requirements at another school
