Year in Wise

The Year in Wise program brings waitlisted UVa students to UVa-Wise for their freshman year.  While here, these students become part of the Year in Wise program, which oversees their progress toward transferring to UVa for their sophomore years.

This program began in 2019 with twenty-five students.  Two elected to remain at UVa-Wise and the remaining twenty-three transferred to UVa.

The 2020...COVID...cohort numbered twenty-six.  Twenty-four transferred to UVa, with one failing to start the program and another electing to spend a second year at UVa-Wise.

In 2021, we have seventy-eight students in the program.
