Institutional Policies & Handbooks

The Institutional Handbook and Student Program Handbooks

The Student Handbooks and Honor Code are in Adobe Acrobat version 10.0 or higher Portable Document Format. The free Adobe Acrobat Reader is required in order to read and print the Student Handbook. If you do not have the Reader, or have a version earlier than 10, please download it now.

The Eastern Virginia Medical School Student Handbooks are publications for use by matriculated students of EVMS.  Handbooks include links to general information about facilities, student services, academic and other policies. The Student Handbook does not contain detailed information specific to individual courses and course content. That information is made available in individual courses.

Eastern Virginia Medical School may at any time, change any provisions, curriculum requirements, teaching facilities and affiliated teaching sites, bylaws, rules, regulations, policies, or procedures as may be necessary in the interest of the Institution and/or its students.
