UVA Class of 2026 Admissions Statistics

It was a banner year for UVA’s admissions office.

The University of Virginia has released Regular Decision notifications for the Class of 2026. In all, 2,123 students earned admission to the elite public university in Regular Decision. This figure does not include students who earned admission to UVA’s Class of 2026 through either its Early Decision or Early Action programs. In total, 9,522 students have earned admission to UVA’s incoming class out of a record total 50,962 candidates. Regular Decision admits thus account for 29% of total admits. So if you were wondering if there’s an advantage in applying Early to UVA, the 29% figure should answer your question. After all, 71% of seats are filled with Early applicants!

As Jane Kelly reports for UVA Today in a piece entitled “UVA Accepted 2,123 Students to Class of 2026 in Regular Admission Cycle,” “Students admitted through the early action and regular decision cycles have until May 1 to reserve a spot in the Class of 2026 that enters in the fall. UVA had another record-breaking year, receiving 50,962 applications as compared to 48,011 last year. The Office of Admission is aware that the volume makes it harder than ever to get into the University. ’We are not able to offer admission to every accomplished and talented and deserving student given the large applicant pool and smaller number of spaces in the class,’ [Dean of Admission Greg] Roberts said. ’We are mindful that this can be a very difficult time for students to whom we were not able to offer admission, and we are thinking of them as well.’ Roberts stressed, however, that students who are not admitted still have the opportunity to enroll and graduate from UVA if they attend another college and transfer to UVA after one or two years.”

Congratulations to all students who earned admission to the University of Virginia’s Class of 2026 in a record year for the institution.
