The Office of Undergraduate Admission has suspended all domestic and international travel through the end of the spring semester. We apologize that we will not be able to visit you this spring but encourage you to join us online for our live, virtual Nova Nation Presentations during this time.

We hope to be able to resume our normal travel schedule for summer and fall college fairs, high school visits and presentations. You can always check out our Villanova Visits You page to see when and where we will be on the road in the future!

During these unprecedented times, Villanova University is fully aware of how curriculum is being impacted. For example, Villanova is offering current students the ability to take classes with grades of satisfactory/unsatisfactory this semester.

Any shifts to your grading scale over this period of time will be considered in our review of transcripts. We are mindful of all of the adjustments that have been made in response to our current global climate, and you will not be penalized for any changes made outside of your control.

We are keeping track of the cancellations for both tests as they are being announced and will be surveying their impact, especially on rising seniors. If we make any policy changes, we will update our website and email prospective students on our mailing list. If you would like to receive these updates, please visit moreinfo.villanova.edu.

No. We want to reiterate that demonstrated interest is not used as a criterion for admission. 

Additionally, a reminder that Villanova does not conduct interviews as part of our admission process.

We remain available to you at gotovu@villanova.edu for any questions that you may have.

We will work with you to ensure that you have your Form I-20 as soon as possible, which is needed before you can make an appointment to obtain your student visa. Please contact the U.S. Embassy in your country for the most up-to-date information regarding delays and closures.

What makes Villanova so easy to get to, but so hard to leave?

vu location map

Our stunning 260 acres are nestled in the safe, storied and lush Main Line, just 12 miles (19 km) west of Philadelphia, the most historic city in the United States. Should you need to expand your reach or just want to go adventuring, Washington DC is 135 miles (215 km) south and New York City is a mere 95 miles (150 km) north. Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) serves more than 120 cities worldwide with 1,000 daily flights.

Three campus rail stops provide quick access to all that Philadelphia has to offer: from culture to dining to the arts to professional sports. If shopping is your thing, turn to our car sharing service or free weekend shuttle to visit the King of Prussia Mall – one of America’s largest retail corridors. Outdoor enthusiasts, too, can tap into their interests with Valley Forge National Historical Park a short ride away.

 

The best way to learn about Villanova is to experience our suburban Philadelphia campus in person.

The Office of Undergraduate Admission welcomes prospective students and their families to experience and learn about the distinct benefits of a Villanova education. Attend an admission presentation, take a tour, eat in our dining halls, meet our students and explore the Nova Nation!

Just A Note...

While we are very excited to roll out the blue and white carpet for your visit, please know that any trip to campus is for your informational purposes only. Villanova does not conduct interviews as part of our admission process, nor do we track demonstrated interest. Prospective and admitted students are encouraged to visit us on a weekday when campus is most active and vibrant.
