VMI offers proactive and innovative programs of academic support for cadets at all levels.


Upon entry into VMI, each cadet is assigned a faculty advisor who, unless the cadet subsequently changes academic major, will work with the cadet until graduation.

The Miller Academic Center provides academic success programs and services that proactively facilitates the successful transition and academic performance of cadets throughout their time at VMI.

The Mathematics Education and Resource Center (MERC) is a free service available to support cadets in math studies.

We support the academic success, personal growth and development of life and leadership skills for cadets in a manner that promotes self-awareness, self-determination, and self-advocacy. ODS also serves as a resource to the VMI community to encourage awareness and understanding regarding disabilities issues in higher education.

The Writing Center complements and extends the writing instruction cadets receive in the classroom by providing help with a full range of activities to improve their writing, at any level and in any discipline.  Professional and peer writing consultants work with cadets in one-on-one conferences on every aspect of the writing process, from planning a paper to polishing the final draft.

Career Services assists cadets with career planning, career experiences, and employment or graduate education opportunities leading to successful transitions following graduation.
