How to Apply

First year engineering students at the University of Virginia will have the opportunity to express interest in the TLP on their major declaration form. The major declaration process is typically in late March.

To be eligible, you must put electrical, computer, civil, or systems engineering as your first choice major on your major declaration form.

You will be informed of whether you are conditionally accepted into the TLP prior to registering for your second-year fall courses (so that you can register for the correct courses). The “conditionally” part is due to the fact that you will not be officially accepted into a major until mid-summer after your first year. If you do not get into a TLP major, you will not be able to be in the TLP. For anyone who is conditionally accepted into the TLP but then does not get into one of the majors, we will help you rearrange your schedule for the following fall.
