Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Institute officials have made several changes to the calendar for the remainder of the fall and the beginning of the spring semester. Cadets will be furloughed from post beginning Friday, Nov. 20, to complete the remainder of the semester online.

Barracks and cadet support services will remain open through the end of the fall semester for those cadets who have extenuating circumstances such as a family member at home who is at risk or those with internet connectivity issues. International cadets and designated cadet-athletes will stay in barracks through the end of the fall semester.

Ring Figure festivities for the Class of 2022 will occur Friday, Nov. 20, and Saturday, Nov. 21. December commencement will be held Saturday, Dec. 19, in Cameron Hall.

Cadets will return to post for the spring semester Jan. 17-18, 2021, to begin academic classes Jan. 21.

Additional information regarding cadet departure, the Class of 2022 Ring Figure, December commencement, cadet return, and support services for all of these events and activities, as well as details regarding refunds for fall room, board, and fees will be available at vmi.edu/fall-2020.
