This is the launch edition of the 2019-20 VCU Bulletin. This version includes all programs and courses approved by the publication deadline; however we may receive notification of additional program approvals after the launch. The final edition and full PDF version will include these updates and will be available in August prior to the beginning of the fall semester. (See the Archives page for bulletins for 2018-19.)

Degree Works is a web-based degree audit tool that helps students and advisers monitor progress toward degree completion. It produces a report that outlines the components and requirements for a student’s degree program and tracks the student’s progress in completing those requirements.

The report is not intended to replace regular contact with academic/faculty advisers, but provides accurate information to assist students and advisers in making appropriate academic choices based on information in Banner, the university’s student information system.

All degree requirements are based on the official curriculum as approved by the university-level curriculum committees and as published in the effective VCU Bulletin of record. While Degree Works is a self-service tool for students and advisers, it is the official means used to confirm that students have completed requirements for graduation.

Note: This policy may not apply to first-professional students.
