Academic Resources

Sometimes you need a little help. Your computer is giving you strange messages, the class you wanted to take next semester is full, and you are having a little trouble in your chemistry class. Not to worry – there are people who can help.
  • Registration-related Questions

    For problems related to advising, registering, changing majors, or transferring, first talk to your advisor. If he or she can't help, contact CNRE’s Advising Center.

  • Tutoring and Assistance

    No one is good at everything, and sometimes you might need a little extra help in a class or with another aspect of your life. Contact a tutor or seek additional help before you fall too far behind to catch up.

  • VT Computing

    Sometimes computers seem to have minds of their own. For those times, contact the helpful folks at – even if you have to use someone else’s computer to get there!

  • CNRE Computer FAQs

    When your computer is working, check out these frequently asked questions about getting set up on the CNRE and VT systems, security, and other IT-related words of advice.

  • Career Services

    If you are graduating soon, you probably have mixed emotions, likely something between relief and terror. VT Career Services can help you identify (and get!) the right job for you.

  • VT Academic Calendar

    There are a lot of dates to keep track of – when to request classes, when to drop classes, when to leave for Spring Break. The Academic Calendar lists all of the important dates in one place.
