According to Virginia Tech's Policy 13000 (PDF), students retain copyright in their work, while the university retains non-exclusive rights. If faculty would like student works for their course to be presented online in VTechWorks, we prefer that faculty inform students in the course syllabus or project assignment of this requirement or request, and provide the instructions for students below.
(Note: Students can always upload their scholarly work to a VTechWorks general collection. Follow the steps above, and request to submit to one of the collections in Student Works, such as Undergraduate Presentations, or propose a new collection. For Undergraduate Theses, students should consult with their faculty mentor first, especially if the work includes data that has not been previously published.)
