This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2021-2022 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.

VCU encourages qualified international students, both immigrant and nonimmigrant, to seek admission to the university. See the Office of Admissions website for additional information.

As required by U.S. regulations and by VCU admission policies, nonimmigrant applicants must demonstrate satisfactory academic achievement, adequate English proficiency and the ability to finance all educational and living expenses. Applicants can refer to the freshman admission guidelines, transfer admission guidelines and admission procedures elsewhere in this section for specific requirements.
