College Association Deans

When in doubt, refer students to their Association Dean. Students can call 434-924-3351 to make an appointment. If they do not know the name of their dean, the staff will assist them when they call to make an appointment (434-924-3351).

If you are concerned about a student who has not been submitting work or attending class, you may contact their Association Dean. If you cannot find the name of a student’s Association Dean (or if it is easier for you), email the student’s full legal name and your concern to askthecollege@virginia.edu.
