This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2024-2025 VCU Bulletin. Courses that expose students to cutting-edge content and transformative learning may be added and notification of additional program approvals may be received prior to finalization. General education program content is also subject to change. 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.

Graduate students are not designated as special honors graduates (i.e., cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude) on transcripts or diplomas upon completion of their programs.

No degree credit for remedial work shall be awarded to graduate students. Graduate students advised to take any level course for remedial work should be notified in writing that the course credit shall not apply to the degrees they are pursuing. Other bodies may rule later, should students wish to apply the credit to some other degree.
