Spring 2021 classes

Spring 2021 classes will start virtually

A student studies at a computer [View Image]VCU has been hard at work making adjustments to the spring 2021 academic calendar and schedule of classes to ensure another successful semester of teaching and learning. All classes will begin virtually, except in instances where a student is involved in clinical and field placements, practica, co-ops, internships and other work-related experiential learning activities. The semester start dates remain unchanged and can be found on the academic calendar. You can find updated information regarding your courses at the VCU Schedule of Classes website.

As pandemic conditions improve, we have every intention to resume in-person instruction as originally planned. We will evaluate the feasibility of moving forward with previously scheduled modalities by mid-February with the hope to resume previously scheduled in-person classes on or before March 8.

Some currently scheduled in-person classes may switch to an online or hybrid modality for the full semester. Departments are evaluating their course schedules now to determine what changes may be necessary. The revised and official Spring 2021 Schedule of Classes will be viewable in eServices on January 22.

Limited campus building availability

MCV campus students will also need to check their VCU emails for updates from their department and deans for information on schedules not captured in eServices, like clinic activities.
