Fall on the Lawn

Admitted Students

Welcome to the M.S. in Commerce Class of 2020!

What’s next? The New Student Portal, a helpful resource in your transition into graduate school, will be available to incoming students in spring 2019. Be sure to mark your calendars with the important M.S. in Commerce Program dates for the 2019-2020 academic year listed below. Also check out the student blog for information on housing options, graduate life in Charlottesville, the restaurant scene, working as a graduate assistant, and a typical class schedule

If you have any questions about funding graduate school, learn about the program's tuition and fees, financial aid, veteran's benefits, or the University's 10-month tuition payment plan. 

Who do I contact now? The Graduate Programs team consists of experts in recruitment, admissions, and student life. Once your deposit has been submitted, our student life team members will provide guidance on orientation, student programming, course enrollment, etc. Beginning in March, your primary resource now will be Assistant Dean for Student Services Sally Kline Armentrout and her colleagues specializing in enhancing the student experience.
