Spring 2021 minimesters

VCU is offering short courses during the spring 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 February term to be held from Feb. 15 to March 19, an eight-week spring minimester to be held from March 8 to May 5, and a five-week March term to be held from March 29 to May 4.

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