ADVISOR QUESTIONS

How do I find out who my advisor is?

Student's advisor's name is listed on the Internet in Hokie SPA (the Virginia Tech Student Information Gateway).
 

May I change to another advisor?

This may vary by major, therefore you should check with your department or college if you wish to change advisors. For example, in the Pamplin College of Business advisors are electronically entered into the student record system, but students may see any advisor they wish.
 

When am I supposed to see my advisor?

Some colleges and departments require advising to register for classes. However, it is recommended that all students see their advisor at least once each semester. Students should see their advisor with any academic questions, concerns about classes, career planning, etc.
 

Will my advisor contact me?

This varies by department and college. In most cases advisors do not contact students unless there is a problem. You should feel free to contact your advisor any time.
 

What is advising?

"Advising" covers many areas: academic, career, athletic, professional, health, and more. For an overview, read Virginia Tech's advising definition and philosophy.
 
 

DECLARING MAJORS AND/OR MINORS

What is a major?
 Look at major at advising glossary.
 

What is a minor? What is the difference between a minor and a concentration?
 Look at the minor at advising glossary.
  

I don't know what to major in. Where can I go? Or how do I learn more about specific career areas?


When do I need to declare my major?

All students at Virginia Tech must be in a degree-granting major and making progress towards completion of their degree by the end of the semester in which they have completed 62 credit-hours or attempted 72 hours (whichever comes first).
 

Do I have to have a minor?

The university does not require that students have a minor. However, some majors do. Check the specific requirements for your major.
 

How do I declare a minor?

Go to the departmental office for the minor that you would like to declare and complete the form. The form must then be turned into the college office of the minor. For example, if you wish to declare a minor in psychology, you would go to 109 Williams Hall, get the department head's signature, and then turn in the form at the College of Science Dean's Office in the Science Administration Building. For a complete list of college locations for minor department offices, go to the list of minors, maintained by the Interdisciplinary Studies office.
 
 

CURRICULUM

What is the University's Curriculum for Liberal Education [CLE] (formerly called the "Core Curriculum")?

The requirements for the CLE are designed as an integrated program of studies, which enable the students to:

1. Acquire a broadly based foundation of knowledge outside the area of specialization.

2. Gain knowledge of and competence in using the analytic and creative problem-solving processes that form the central bases of intellectual inquiry and achievement.

3. Develop a global perspective on the diversity and dilemmas of human experience and knowledge.

4. Understand how diverse intellectual skills and forms of knowledge can be brought together to make informed judgments about complex issues.

5. Acquire skill in the communication of ideas and knowledge.

6. Develop the capacities of discernment, appreciation, and criticism as they pertain to cultures, values, information, and ideas.

7. Develop and maintain the habit of learning and responding to new ideas throughout life.
 

What is a checksheet?

A checksheet is a list of requirements that must be completed to graduate for any given major at Virginia Tech. Checksheets are developed in each department and are available in the departmental offices. The Registrar's Office posts officially approved checksheets on-line.

Obtain the checksheet for the year you will graduate: requirements may change depending upon the year of your graduation.
 

How do I know what courses I am supposed to be taking?

Consult your academic advisor. Your advisor is here to help you identify your academic and career goals and then to assist in choosing the courses from your checksheet(s) that will enable you to achieve these goals.

You should prepare for your meeting with your advisor by reviewing the University Curriculum for Liberal Education and appropriate checksheet(s). Bring a list of possible courses with you and include the reason you are considering each course (i.e. major requirement, core requirement, exploratory, elective).
 

Why do I need to read the course descriptions in the undergraduate catalog for courses I plan to take?

The course description explains the content of the course, any pre- or co-requisites for the course, and whether the course duplicates any other Virginia Tech course. If it duplicates, you will not receive credit toward graduation for both courses. This is especially important if you change your major.
 

What are controlled/technical/departmental/restricted electives?

These electives are courses which enhance your major. Most departments provide a list of appropriate electives from which you must select a specified number of hours. Consult your advisor for a list.
 

What are free electives?

Free electives are any courses that you choose to take above and beyond University, college, or departmental requirements.
 
 

REGISTRATION / COURSE REQUEST

What is registration/course-request?

Course Request is a time period each semester when students "request" courses that they would like to take for the next semester via the Hokie Spa. Students should try not to miss Course Request since this is their best chance to get into courses.

Registration is a time period each semester when students ADD and DROP courses from their class schedule for the next semester via the Hokie Spa.
 

I missed registration. What do I do now to get classes?

Students who do not submit a course request during the registration period, may add classes when DROP/ADD becomes available on the Hokie Spa for that particular semester. See next answer for drop/add access times for each semester.

 When do students have access to drop/add each semester?

The University Registrar's office posts the dates when DROP/ADD is open to students. See Timetable information and Deadlines for specific semesters on the University Registrar's homepage.

How and when do I force/add a class?

Force/adding classes is done in 2 instances:

1. When the class capacity is full and the departmental office or professor agrees to let you enroll.

2. When the course has restrictions on it for which you don't meet but the professor or departmental office agrees to let you enroll.

In order to force-add a class you have to do the following:

1. Obtain a pink force-add slip from a department or an academic dean's office on campus.

2. Talk with the professor teaching the course and ask if he or she will force-add you into the class. Usually the professor of the class has the authority to approve the force-add form, but in some cases, such as Freshman English and Engineering Fundamentals, students must submit force-add requests at a departmental office and return later to see if they have been force-added into the course. This can sometimes be done when drop/add opens, but most faculty and departments want to wait until the first day of classes. If the professor agrees to force-add, have the professor sign the force-add slip.

3. Take the force-add form to the correct colleges and departments for processing: this is the student's responsibility. Where you take the force-add form depends on what time in the semester it is being processed.

If you are trying to force-add a class before the last day to add courses, take the slip to the department of the professor who teaches the class. For example, if you are force-adding a biology lab, you would take the force-add slip to the biology department.

If you are trying to force-add after the last day to add courses, in addition to the professor's signature on this slip, you have to get the signature of your academic dean. Then, if the course is not offered in your home college, you also have to take the force-add slip to the college offering the course. For example, if you are a Business major and you are force-adding a science lab, you have to have the Academic Dean in Business sign the slip and then take it to the other Academic Dean's office in the College of Science for processing.

ALWAYS keep your receipt for any add or drop transaction, this may be your only proof that you should be enrolled in a course. When requesting to force-add, remember that the professor or department is under no obligation to allow you into a class that is full; you have the right to ask, but the professor or department also has the right to refuse.

I enrolled in summer school classes and have now decided to go home for the summer. Why can't I drop all of my courses on drop/add?

In order to drop your total hours of enrollment to 0 hours for any semester, you have to officially resign from University. The University Registrar provides the specifics on how to go about officially resigning from the University.

How do I register for summer classes at Virginia Tech?

Course-request for Summer occurs at the same time as for Fall. Course requests are submitted via Hokie SPA during course-request week around the middle of Spring semester. Later in the semester, the DROP/ADD period will begin--check the timetables for specific dates each year. For more information on summer school, go to Virginia Tech Summer Sessions.
 

I am registered for a class that I thought I had dropped (or that I didn't know I was registered for)? What do I do?

Contact your academic advisor or the Dean for your college.
 

I am not doing well in a class and it is past the drop deadline, is there anything I can do?

Consider using the "Course Withdrawal Policy". A maximum of six credit-hours (6) may be dropped beyond the normal six-week drop deadline date during a student's academic career at Virginia Tech subject to the following stipulations:

1. The request to apply this policy must be submitted to your undergraduate academic dean’s office no later than 5:00 p.m. on the Friday of the last full week of classes before the term deadline displayed in the Timetable of Classes. This policy can be applied to any course taken during the current semester, prior to a student's scheduled graduation.

2. Students must complete the formal request to withdraw from a course.

3. Courses from which students withdraw under the terms of this policy will appear on their transcripts with a grade of "W."

4. Students may request withdrawal from any course irrespective of the grades earned in it up to the point of their request for withdrawal. However, this policy may not be applied to courses with honor system penalies associated with them.

5. To exercise this option, make an appointment to see your advisor or academic dean to discuss the possibility of using the Course Withdrawal Policy. You should submit a Course-Withdrawal form to your designated departmental representative and academic dean for approval.

6. Students already enrolled when this policy took effect who have exercised their option to Freshman Rule the total 6 hours of credit allowed under the old Freshman Rule Policy shall not be eligible to use this new policy.

7. Students who have not exercised their option to "Freshman Rule" 6 credits or who have only exercised their option to Freshman Rule fewer than 6 credits may elect to withdraw from the remaining balance of credits up to the maximum 6 hours of credits allowed under this policy.

  

I want to add a class, but I do not have the prerequisites, can I take it anyway?

Prerequisites are established so students are prepared with the knowledge base needed in order to understand and apply the new information being taught in a class. Prerequisites are spelled out in the course description in the undergraduate catalog and in the timetable.

It is a students responsibility to be sure they have the prerequisites completed before enrolling in a subsequent course. The department and the professor that offer the course enforce the prerequisite requirement. Therefore, if in doubt about prerequisites for a course, check with the professor teaching the course or the department offering the course.
 
 

GRADES AND GRADING OPTIONS

What is a GPA and how is it calculated?

GPA is Grade Point Average. You can use the "Grade Point Average Calculator" on Hokie Spa to determine what GPA you need to receive in order to maintain a certain overall GPA and the "GPA Calculation formula" to do "What if" calculations.

The following steps and example illustrate how to calculate your GPA.

Step 1
Multiply the number of credit hours for each class by the number of "quality credit (QC) points" earned for the grade you receive (For a 3-credit class in which you earn an A, for example, give yourself 12 points.)

A = 4.0   C = 2.0
A- = 3.7   C- = 1.7
B+ = 3.3   D+ = 1.3
B = 3.0   D = 1.0
B- = 2.7   D- = 0.7
C+ = 2.3   F = 0

Step 2
Add the total quality credit points for each class together.

Step 3
Divide by the number of credit hours you passed that were graded A-F plus the number of credit hours you failed, whether graded A-F or P/F. (Pass-fail classes that you fail count in your GPA but pass-fail hours that you pass do not.)

Courses taken pass/fail affect the calculation of GPA only if the course is failed. Then the "F" is used in the GPA calculation.

Incomplete grades (I) do not affect your GPA. See your professor immediately to make arrangements to complete the course, otherwise the "I" changes to an "F".

If your professor does not submit a grade, it shows as an "NR" on your grade report and counts as an "F" in your GPA. See your professor to determine how to resolve the "NR".

How do I calculate my in-major GPA?

The in-major GPA calculation is done just like the overall GPA, except that only in-major courses count. To find the in-major courses for your major, check with your advisor, department head, or they may be listed on your check sheet.
 

What is the pass/fail grading option?

A limited pass/fail (P/F) grading system is available to encourage students to enrich their academic programs and explore more challenging courses outside their majors, without the pressures and demands of the regular grading system. The P/F grading option is available to all undergraduates who have completed a minimum of 30 credit hours at Virginia Tech and have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above. These restrictions do not apply to courses that are only offered P/F. A student is permitted to take up to 10 percent of the requirements for graduation completed at Virginia Tech under the P/F grading system option. This includes elective courses and also any course that may be required by a department and offered only on a P/F basis. No more than two courses per term may be taken P/F, excluding physical education activity courses and required courses offered on a P/F basis only.

Under the P/F grading system, a "P" is granted for earning a "D" or better in the course; otherwise, an "F" is given. A "D-" is a failing grade under the P/F option. The "P" or "F" is recorded on the student's transcript and credit is given if the course is passed. If the course is failed, the "F" is considered equivalent to an "F" received under the "A-F" grading system and is included in calculation of the GPA. Once credit is received for a course taken under the P/F system, the course cannot be repeated under the "A-F" grading system.
 

What courses may be taken P/F?

No required course or course used for the university core curriculum may be taken on a P/F basis. Any course to be taken under the P/F option should be designated as such upon request for the course. The student may change grading options to P/F until the drop deadline and to A-F until the deadline for resigning without penalty. See the timetable for specific dates for each semester.
 

What is academic probation and/or suspension?

Probation is a period when your cumulative GPA is below 2.0. Virginia Tech requires that all students maintain a 2.0 GPA to remain in good standing. Courses taken while a student is on probation may be transferred back to Tech  if they were pre-approved by the student's academic dean. (Only courses in which a "C" or better is earned can be transferred back to Tech.)

Academic suspension is a period of time during which a student is not eligible to be enrolled in classes at VA Tech due to academic deficiencies. Classes taken at community colleges or other colleges and universities while on suspension can never be transferred back to Tech.
 

Under what conditions can I repeat a class in which I have already received a grade?

Courses with a designated course status of "Course Withdrawn" may be repeated.

Classes in which you earned C- or below may be retaken; however, grades for both attempts will be calculated into your GPA. The semester hours for only one attempt will count toward graduation.

Classes in which you earned C or above can be retaken, but you will receive only a grade of pass or fail when you repeat one of these classes. The credit hours for the repeated course will not count toward graduation.
 

I received a D- as a grade in one of my major classes; do I need to repeat this course?

This will vary with your major and the course. For example, all business majors must have a grade of C- or better in nine lower division courses before going on to junior level classes. Consult with your academic advisor.
 

My professor is not using plus and minus grades. Can he/she do that?

Yes. Instructors may assign grades as they wish and should state their grading system on the course syllabus.
 

My final grade was not what I anticipated, what can I do?

Recalculate your grade (refer to the syllabus to be sure you completed all assignments). If this does not resolve the discrepancy, contact your instructor/professor and discuss how your grade was determined. Ask to see your final exam. If you don't resolve the issue at this level, contact the professor's department head.
 

What is an audit?

An audit occurs when you attend the class but you do not receive a grade for the class. It has no effect on your GPA. The last day to change a course to audit is the last day to add classes, usually the Friday of the first week of classes.
 

Can I audit any course?

Check with your advisor or college dean before auditing a course. Once a student audits a course, it may not be taken again for a letter grade. Courses that are required for your major, or courses that satisfy the Curriculum for Liberal Education requirements, cannot be audited.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

What is the difference between a college and university?

A University, such as Virginia Tech, is made up of a group of colleges. Each college has departments that offer courses and/or majors.
 

If I wish to take courses at another college or university this summer, where do I find out what courses will transfer and which ones will not?

Students who wish to transfer credit from another university to Virginia Tech may check the Transfer Equivalency Database. The Database, located under the University Registrar's homepage, allows a student to search by school for a desired class to determine what schools offer equivalent courses to Virginia Tech. Students should also contact their college academic dean's office to determine if pre-approval from the college is required for transferring credits to Tech in particular majors.

 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

U.S. History requirement MORATORIUM

There is presently a moratorium on the U.S. History requirement. This administrative decision by the University Provost is a result of resource priorities. Students with a start date of Fall 2001 through Fall 2008 will not be required to fulfill the published graduation requirements for U.S. History. In 2007, the University will revisit this requirement to determine if there are sufficient resources available to lift the moratorium.

Foreign Language Requirement : See information from the Foreign Languages Department, or the University Undergraduate Catalog under Graduation Requirements and Degree Conferrals.

GPA:
The GPA calculator is located in Hokie Spa.

  1. Go to Hokie Spa.
  2. Log in using your pid and password.
  3. Select "Hokie Spa" from the list of options.
  4. Once in "Hokie Spa" , select "Grades / Menu" .

UNIVERSITY ACADEMIC POLICIES

Changing Exam Times:

If you have 3 final exams in a 24-hour period, or two final exams at the same or overlapping times, you may request permission from your academic dean's office to have an exam rescheduled. Each college has a form in the academic dean's office which a student must complete by the published deadline each semester (refer to the semester calendars in the class timetables for deadlines) to request a final exam be rescheduled. Exams are not typically rescheduled for reasons other than those stated above. Common time exams cannot be rescheduled.

Course Withdrawal Policy

Make an appointment to see your academic advisor to discuss the possibility of using the Course Withdrawal Policy.  This policy is available for both entering and continuing students.
A maximum six hours (6) may be dropped beyond the normal six-week drop deadline date during a student's academic career at Virginia Tech subject to the following stipulations:
1. This option may be exercised for classes in which a student is currently enrolled up through the Friday of the last full week of classes for each term. This deadline will appear in the Registrar's listing of academic deadlines.
2. To exercise this option, students must complete a formal Course Withdrawal Form, which is available through the student's academic dean or advisor. After obtaining and completing the Course Withdrawal Form, students should submit the form to their designated departmental representative and academic dean for approval.
3. If a registration HOLD exists on a student's account at the time of application to apply the Course Withdrawal Policy to a course, the student must take action to remove the hold(s) within five working days of the application or the Withdrawal request will be voided. Students are responsible for resolving their registration holds with the appropriate university office.
4. Courses from which students withdraw under the terms of this policy will appear on their transcripts with a "grade" of "W."
5. Students may request withdrawal from any course irrespective of the grades earned in it up to the point of their request for withdrawal.
6. Students already enrolled when this policy took effect who have exercised their option to Freshman Rule the total 6 hours of credit allowed under the current Freshman Rule Policy shall not be eligible to use this policy.
7. Students who have not exercised their option to Freshman Rule 6 credits or who have only exercised their option to Freshman Rule fewer than 6 credits may elect to withdraw from the remaining balance of credits up to the maximum 6 hours of credits allowed under this policy.
