Schedule of Classes Intersession Courses

VCU's Holiday Intersession, always a unique learning experience, is taking on aspects of an adventure for the 2002-2003 session. While most of the university will be closed, more than 700 students have registered in 24 classes and are looking forward to being on campus from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 27, 28, 30, 31 and Jan. 2 – 4, and 6 – 9.

Rooms have been assigned for Intersession classes and are listed in the online schedule of classes. Four of our classes are conducted primarily online, but PHIL 221, POLI 391 and SOCY 101 will meet occasionally on campus. POLI 365 is completely online. For more information about these courses, please check the following Web sites or email:

Because the university is closed, services will be curtailed during Intersession.

The Intersession administrative office will be in the Alumni Conference Room in the School of Business (rooms 1101/1132). If we can be of service to you, please come by or call 828-1831.

The Student Services Counter in Founders Hall will be closed, but a representative from the registration office will be in Business 1101/1132 on Friday, Dec. 27, from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. to handle in-person registrations and on Thursday, Jan. 2, from 9 am-2 pm to process in-person withdrawals. A full refund will be granted if an Intersession course is dropped by 12 midnight on the day of the first class meeting. There will be no partial refunds during Holiday Intersession. The last day to withdraw from a three-credit Intersession class is Thursday, Jan. 2 by 12 midnight. Students are always encouraged to use e-Services to register, drop and withdraw and should use e-Services during the days and hours when in-person services are not available.

The student commons will be closed and food will not be available there during Intersession. However, Java 901 will be open in Cabell Library with reduced hours. Many privately owned restaurants are available in the VCU area.

The Main Street and the Broad Street parking decks will be open. The cost per park is $2.75 with a VCU student ID and $4.75 without. Please do not park in surface lots since all are restricted and rented on an annual basis to university employees.

The bookstore and the library will be open, as will the computer lab in the basement of the library. At the first class meeting, students will receive a chart showing the hours of service.

We're looking forward to seeing you on campus!

PS: We still have seats in ARTH 474: American Independent Films; HIST 104: Survey of American History; HIST 324: The Holocaust, and SOCS 340: Human Sexuality.
