The University Office of Undergraduate Admissions released its early action offers for the Class of 2020 Friday.

The University’s early acceptance rate was 31 percent, with 5,203 offers of admission from a pool of 16,768 early action applicants, Dean of Admission Gregory Roberts said.

“Over 32,500 students applied for [early and regular] admission this year, a 4 percent increase over last year and a record for application submissions to U.Va.,” Roberts said in an email statement.

The enrolling class is targeted to be about 3,675 students — about the same as last year’s enrollment.

Overall, there were 96 offers of admission to the Architecture School, 3,955 offers to the College, 62 offers to Curry School, 1,025 offers to the Engineering School and 65 offers to the Nursing School.

“Admission to the University continues to be highly competitive. Our review is comprehensive, thorough and highly personal,” Roberts said. “We are committed to enrolling top scholars from diverse backgrounds.”

Students in the enrolling class will have strong academic credentials but will also be significant contributors to their school and communities, Roberts said.

“We seek good citizens with strong character and personal qualities. Our goal each year is to enroll students who will positively impact the classroom, residence halls, clubs, teams and service organizations,” Roberts said. “Students we admit and enroll will help transform this university for years to come.”
