As a new student, you can only obtain a VCUCard during the semester in which you are currently enrolled for classes. You can register for classes at the VCU Enrollment Services Records & Registration Office.
Students that are not physically taking classes on-campus and are participating in online courses, do not need a VCUCard.
New Student Orientation
Typically, you will obtain your VCUCard during New Student Orientation sessions, and are provided with further information from New Student Programs. If you are not participating in an orientation, please wait at least 2 weeks before the start of your classes to obtain your VCUCard.
Photo Submission is only available to pre-approved orientation groups. You will recieve the link to access the photo submission site from your orientation coordinator or instructions will be provided in your online orientation module. Please carefully review the guidelines for photo submission.
