Find Your Advisor
Who is my academic advisor?
Each undergraduate student at Virginia Tech is assigned an academic advisor. Advisors can help you explore majors, register for classes, locate tutoring resources, shop study abroad options, find ways to gain real-world experience and monitor your progress towards graduation.
You can find your assigned advisor by logging into Hokie Spa, where you can see your advisor listed under the “View your General Student Information” tab. For summer academic advising you will work with an advisor from your college but that person may not be your permanent advisor. All new students will have an advisor assigned by the beginning of Fall semester.
Your Advising Community
These advising services are an overview of offices that provide additional support for students. Depending upon your interests and goals, you may on occasion be using multiple services at one time in addition to your assigned major advisor. Be aware of the variety of advising resources available to you when you need it.
Transitional Advising offers students the opportunity to work with an advisor one-on-one through the exploration, planning, and implementation process to change their major. Transitional advising is intended for students outside of University Studies, and is directed to students who are in transition out of a particular major for various reasons and/or need assistance when not accepted into their desired major.
