Guidelines for a safe, productive return to VCU

Guidelines for the VCU community during the COVID-19 pandemic

The campus experience is different than it was before the COVID-19 crisis. We all — the university, the students and the faculty and staff — have a role to play in fostering a safe campus during COVID-19. As guidance, best practices and circumstances evolve, changes in operations, modes of instruction and services at the university may be required. This website serves as your hub for the latest information and resources.

Vaccine reporting and on-campus clinics

If you are interested in attending an on-campus COVID-19 vaccination clinic, please fill out the applicable form linked below. You can also use this link if you received your COVID-19 vaccination and you would like to report it to VCU. In addition to guidance from public health experts, VCU relies on this timely information to make decisions that impact university operations and plan future vaccination events.

You can also register with your state or local health district to receive your vaccine. Virginia residents can visit Vaccinate.Virginia.gov or call 1-877-VAX-IN-VA, 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Language translation available, TTY users dial 7-1-1.

VCU Return to Campus plan

See additional details about VCU's strategy for reopening in our VCU Return to Campus Plan . This plan has been reviewed by the State Council of Higher Education and has been found to be compliant in containing the required components of the "Higher Education Reopening Guidance," which was developed in consultation with the Virginia Department of Health.


The spring 2021 semester began Jan. 25. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, VCU will not have spring break but instead will hold reading days on Feb. 23 and March 24. Classes will end May 5 for the Monroe Park Campus and May 7 for the MCV Campus, with exams to follow.

The spring 2021 academic calendar is available at https://academiccalendars.vcu.edu/default.asp.
