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.

A student may drop a class through the end of the add/drop registration period. When a class is dropped, the registration and associated tuition/fee charges are cancelled. Drop charges are removed to indicate that the student never attended the class or never attended the class beyond the add/drop registration period.

A student may withdraw from a class up to the withdrawal deadline as published in the university academic calendar. Withdrawal from a course does not cancel the registration or the associated tuition/fee charges and results in the assignment of the grade of W. Refunds, if applicable, are issued in accordance with procedures described in the refunds section of the tuition and student fees section of this bulletin.

In both situations, any financial aid already disbursed to the student’s account based on the original course registration will be assessed and adjusted according to the university refund policy and may result in a balance due to the university.
