2020-21 visitation information

We recognize that many students who are considering graduate education at Virginia Tech cannot visit the Blacksburg campus in Southwest Virginia, or our additional campuses in the greater Washington, D.C. metro area and in Roanoke due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. We've created several virtual tour videos to give you a sense of what the Blacksburg campus is like for graduate students.         

You also can meet virtually with one of our recruitment office staff members. Please use this form to request a meeting.

We also encourage you to contact the department or departments you are considering.

Meet Your Department

Contact the department or departments that you’re interested in to set up a virtual meeting. They can introduce you to faculty members you’d be studying with and give you details about what it’s like to be a student in their programs.

Visit our degrees and programs page to learn more about your program of interest. We also offer a wide range of graduate certificates. You can learn about them here.

You can contact your department directly, or we can help you set up a virtual meeting (but we ask that you give us one week’s notice).
