Student-Athlete Support Services helps student-athletes at Virginia Commonwealth University successfully complete the requirements for a bachelor’s degree while ensuring that university policies and NCAA academic rules and regulations are followed.

Advisor meetings

Each team is assigned an athletic advisor who will coordinate academic and personal advising. Athletic advisors can help with study skills, time management, registration, major and class selection.

All first-year student-athletes meet with their athletic advisor weekly. Upperclass student-athletes meet with their athletic advisor as needed.
