Spring Orientation

Pylons in winter

Welcome to Virginia Tech!

Whether you are coming to us from high school, a community college, or a four-year institution, you will find that Virginia Tech is a distinctly different place with many wonderful opportunities. New Student and Family Programs looks forward to assisting you in your transition to the Hokie community.

The first step to becoming a Hokie is to attend Spring Orientation. Spring Orientation is for students who will begin classes at Virginia Tech during spring semester.

During your orientation session, you will learn about university services and resources, interact with academic representatives from your college, and meet with current students to have your questions answered about student life at Virginia Tech. Our goal is to give you the information you need to feel comfortable and confident to begin your journey as a Hokie.

More information about Spring Orientation 2021 will be posted here as it becomes available.

The transition to a new school is often a major milestone for family members as well. We recognize that family members may have questions and offer a live family session designed to help answer these questions. Be sure to register your family member(s) when you register so they have the opportunity to get their questions answered and can learn more about how they can stay involved as a new Hokie Family!
