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.

Nondegree-seeking students

Students who have not been admitted to a graduate program in nursing may be admitted to individual courses. Permission to register for courses is granted at the discretion of the School of Nursing. Only six credits earned as a nondegree-seeking student can be applied to the master’s degree. Only three credits may be earned by post-master’s students prior to admission.

Enrollment

Students may begin study during the fall semester. Students will have an academic adviser appointed and will follow the standard program of study. Once admitted, students are expected to abide by enrollment policies of the Graduate School.
