Dear VCU faculty and students,
In order to provide flexibility due to the unprecedented challenges we are facing this academic year, VCU is instituting a temporary academic regulation, “Student absence due to COVID-19.”
This temporary regulation provides guidance for students who are required to enter quarantine or isolation due to COVID-19, as well as direction to students, faculty and advisors on how to best ensure continuity of learning during extended excused absences.
This temporary regulation is effective for the 2020-21 academic year (fall, spring and summer), and applies to all students: undergraduate, graduate and professional.
