Students of the Helms School of Government are frequently given the opportunity to interact with leaders in government, professional disciplines and military service. In response, on Sept. 11, 2009, the Helms School announced the adoption of a Helms School of Government Dress Code. The spirit of the dress code is adherence to a business professional appearance, with special attention to modesty. This enhanced standard has been reviewed by the University administration, and is authorized under the provisions of the Liberty Way.

This dress code applies to the following students:
For 300- and 400-level classes that meet after 5:00 p.m., students shall follow the dress code standards set forth in the Liberty Way.
Hats, caps or shorts are never acceptable inside any classroom or the Helms School suite.
University established “spirit day” dress for students is permitted.
Military service uniforms, worn in compliance with DoD standards, are always appropriate and welcome in the Helms School.
After Jan. 1, 2010, any student found in violation of this University approved dress code may be reported to the Student Conduct Office.
Additionally, the student may be asked to leave the class, exam or function and considered absent, as appropriate.
