This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2020-21 VCU Bulletin. This edition includes all programs and courses approved by the publication deadline; however we may receive notification of additional program approvals after the launch. The final edition and full PDF version will include these updates and will be available in August prior to the beginning of the fall semester.
This section of the Bulletin covers academic regulations and includes universitywide policies, which pertain to all students, as well as those specific to undergraduates and graduate students.
It is the responsibility of all students, both on- and off-campus, to be familiar with the academic regulations in individual school and department publications and on program websites; however, in all cases, the official policies and procedures of the university, as published on this website, take precedence over individual program policies and guidelines.
Students are also subject to any policy changes approved by the university for immediate implementation and published on the Bulletins website for the current academic year.
