Advising is for:

  • Career and Professional Development (CPD) provides career-related advising to Virginia Tech undergraduate and graduate students whose academic programs are based in Blacksburg or Roanoke.

Multiple modes and safety

  • Advising will be offered both virtually and in person starting fall 2021.
  • If you have scheduled an in-person appointment and are not feeling well or have cold symptoms, please call us and change your appointment to virtual, or reschedule.
  • For in-person contacts: Even if not mandated, our staff may choose to wear masks for health and safety reasons. Advisors might choose to ask advisees to wear a mask. As a student, you should also feel free to ask your advisor to wear a mask if that makes you feel more comfortable.
  • The Virginia Tech Ready site provides information about health and safety for the university community.
