Information on spring course modalities available for undergraduate students

Due to the various course modality options, please be sure you are aware of the different modalities and what that might mean for you. Are you able to take courses while away from Blacksburg or do you need to come to campus to complete your courses? Be intentional about the course modalities you are choosing and how it may impact other day-to-day tasks.
In preparation for the upcoming change of major, be informed about the change of major dates, and the change of major opening on Monday, Dec. 14.
