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.

Registration for graduate study

In the biomedical engineering program, all new students begin their course of study in the fall semester (August). Spring semester admissions require the recommendation of the graduate program director and consent of the chair and the associate dean for graduate studies.

Students may begin a course of study in either the fall or spring semesters for other engineering and computer science graduate programs; however, a start in the fall semester is preferred. For the CGEP, students may begin a course of study in either the fall or spring semester.
