Special information about spring courses, vaccines and scholarships
The College of Humanities and Sciences offers more than 150 scholarships to current students annually.
To explore and apply for scholarships:
Are you an incoming freshman or transfer student?
All first-year students in the College are automatically assigned an adviser.
You can withdraw from a class through the first 10 weeks of classes.
The ARAC process
If you wish to appeal for an exception to VCU academic regulations, this appeal must be made to the Academic Regulations Appeals Committee (ARAC). Examples of such appeals include retroactive withdrawals from classes, waiver of the continuance policy following a suspension, and waiver of the last 25 percent residency requirement for courses taken at VCU.
Reminder! In addition to these requirements, check the specific graduation requirements for your major. Contact your adviser for more information.
All students within the College of Humanities and Sciences are required to meet a foreign language requirement either through the 102 level for the college general education program or through a higher level as specified by the individual program. Students who have successfully completed the third level of a foreign language at an accredited public or private U.S. high school level qualify for a foreign language exemption through the 102 level at VCU.
