    Student Conduct

The Student Conduct system educates students about appropriate behavior and fosters a community in which academic success can occur.

This website has been designed to provide members within, and outside of, the Virginia Tech community with information regarding the student conduct process. While we have attempted to provide as much information as possible, please do not solely rely on our website to answer your questions. Our contact information is found at the bottom of this page and we are available via phone and email to answer any and all questions.

Inclement weather statement:

When Virginia Tech has communicated that classes are cancelled or that the university is closed for inclement weather all appointments, meetings, hearings, programs, workshops, and training sessions scheduled during that time will be cancelled.  Please note that this also applies to any delayed openings and early closings due to inclement weather. When the university is open, all scheduled appointments with our office will continue as scheduled, unless otherwise communicated by the office.

*Please note that if there is inclement weather and the university is open, the severe weather conditions (rain, snow, cold temperatures, ice, etc.) may prevent a staff member from remaining or returning to the university. We will do our best to keep that appointment, however, we may need to reschedule it or move it to another staff member or location. Should you have concerns about your ability to travel to campus safely due to inclement weather, please contact our office to address your concerns.

For appointments, meetings, conduct meetings, hearings, programs, and training sessions that are cancelled, a staff member will contact you to reschedule. The office may elect to communicate via email or through the Hokie Spa Student Conduct notification page to reschedule. Students are expected to check these emails and notifications. 

Please understand that we are looking out for the best interest and safety of all students and staff during an inclement weather event. Thank you in advance for your understanding of any inconvenience that rescheduling a conduct meeting or event may cause due to inclement weather. 

For more information, please contact us at (540) 231-3790 or studentconduct@vt.edu.

Important Updates

  • Continuing Duty to Report Arrests and Convictions: In November 2010, the decision was made unanimously by the University Safety and Security Policy Committee to adopt a policy that collects arrest, conviction, and issuance of protective order information from students. The Virginia Tech Self-Disclosure of Arrests and Convictions Policy is similar to what was enacted at the University of Virginia in August 2010.
  • Hokie Handbook: The Student Code of Conduct and University Policies for Student Life are the regulations that apply to every student at Virginia Tech, including the satellite campuses. All Virginia Tech students are required to know and to comply with these policies. These and other policies that students are responsible for knowing are located in the Hokie Handbook, the university’s official student guide.
  • Enrollment Blocks: If Student Conduct placed a block on your Hokie SPA account, you cannot change your schedule until the block is removed. Contact Student Conduct to schedule a hearing.
  • Pending completion of an educational sanction: If you have not received an email about unresolved educational sanctions from the previous academic year, contact Student Conduct.
