Fall 2021 minimesters

VCU is offering short courses during the fall semester meant to provide students with scheduling flexibility, in part because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. These minimesters will allow students to take accelerated classes and explore new educational topics. There are three minimesters: a five-week September term to be held from Sept. 13 - Oct. 15, an eight-week fall minimester to be held from Sept. 13 - Nov. 5, and a five-week October term to be held from Oct. 25 - Dec. 3.

The Fall 2021 minimester courses can be found in the Fall Schedule of Classes by searching the attribute type for the individual minimester.
