Parent Resources

Welcome Hokie Parents!

Families play a key role in the success of their students, as they make progress toward degree completion. Research suggests that family support has an impact on academic and social engagement and student retention and persistence. As you provide continued support to your student in various ways, Summer and Winter Sessions has developed an online resource for parents.

This online resource provides additional information, as your student considers summer and/or winter session enrollment. For example, parents may learn more details related to scholarships and financial aid opportunities. Find out how taking summer and winter courses throughout your student’s academic career at Virginia Tech can potentially shorten the time to degree completion.

Other topics include faculty and student perspectives related to enrollment during these special sessions. For further assistance, contact us at or
