Virginia Union University has a prescribed dress code and some attire is considered inappropriate in specific settings on/off campus. Furthermore, dressing appropriately is considered a part of the learning process. Students and their guests who do not adhere to the dress code may be denied access to university services including, but not limited to the classroom, the cafeteria and other academic buildings. If an instance occurs wherein a student feels that a request regarding the dress code is unreasonable, the student should first adhere to the request of the faculty or staff member, and then follow up with a written document using the appropriate appeal procedure.
