Getting ready for your first semester

New School, New Policies

We want you to have the best opportunity for success and with that means learning new policies and knowing where to find out what happens during the year at Virginia Tech.

  • Review Academic Policies located in the Undergraduate Catalog at VT including requirements to stay in good academic standing
  • Check the Academic Calendar and Timetable Calendar for important dates and deadlines
  • Read the Honor Code Policy and Manual to know the standards of academic behavior and honor system procedures.
  • Review the Hokie Handbook which contains the Code of Conduct, The University Policies for Student Life, and other key policies and procedures you are required to know and abide.

Navigating the language at Virginia Tech can be a challenge. Please access the Academic Advising Glossary (coming soon) to understand commonly used academic terms.
