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.)

The university reserves the right to terminate the enrollment of any student for unlawful, disorderly or immoral conduct, or for persistent failure to fulfill the purposes for which he or she was matriculated. Any students whose relations are so severed forfeit all rights and claims with respect to the institution.

In addition to dismissal for failure to comply with standards of conduct described in the Rules and Procedures of VCU and the VCU Honor System, a student may be dismissed from the academic unit in which he or she is enrolled for failure to meet academic requirements prescribed by his or her academic unit or failure to exhibit the attitudes and skills deemed necessary to function within the chosen professional practice. Therefore any action by a student considered to be unprofessional conduct according to the code of ethics and the laws and regulations governing the student’s chosen profession shall constitute cause for disciplinary action.

Unprofessional conduct includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Fraud or deceit in gaining admission to the university, i.e., false or obviously misleading representations on the admissions application
  2. An act that violates the established standards regarding conduct of one person toward society, as stated in the VCU Code of Conduct
  3. Conviction of a felony involving moral turpitude
