Readmission to Virginia Tech

The Student Success Center is here to assist students who are on academic suspension to successfully re-enroll at Virginia Tech. We work closely with you to help you raise your GPA back to good academic standing.

Transition back to campus

When you are eligible to return, follow these four easy steps for a successful transition back to campus:  

Step 1: Visit Hokie SPA and review any administrative holds (Hokie SPA > Hokie Wallet > Administrative Holds). If needed, please contact the appropriate office to remove your hold.

Step 2: Reach out to your advisor and schedule a meeting to select courses for Spring 2022. To be ready for course registration (October 19-November 2), meet with your advisor no later than the second week of October. Waiting too long to meet with your advisor may result in a lack of course availability. If you do not know who your advisor is, please go to Hokie SPA and click on “View your General Student Information.” If no advisor is listed, please contact University Studies. Consider enrolling in LAHS 1014: Academic Success through Personal Investment and Responsibility (ASPIRE), our academic recovery course designed to support and motivate you in your academic journey.

Step 3: If applicable, please check with the University Scholarships and Financial Aid office to ensure you are in good standing for your return to campus.  

Step 4: Confirm your housing. If you plan to live on campus, log into the StarRez portal and complete your Housing and Dining contract. If you plan to live off campus, consider your off-campus options.

Tutoring
Great students talk about the content of their classes with others. It’s for this reason that the Student Success Center offers individual and drop-in group tutoring sessions at no additional cost. These sessions are designed to provide content support in your classes. Students make and keep their own appointments and can see a tutor in-person or virtually by selecting their preferred modality.
