This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2024-2025 VCU Bulletin. We may add courses that expose our students to cutting-edge content and transformative learning. We may also add content to the general education program that focuses on racial literacy and a racial literacy graduation requirement, and 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.

Registration for graduate study

In the biomedical engineering program, all new students begin their course of study in the fall semester (August). Spring semester admissions require the recommendation of the graduate program director and consent of the chair and the associate dean for graduate studies.

Students may begin a course of study in either the fall or spring semesters for other engineering and computer science graduate programs; however, a start in the fall semester is preferred. For Cardinal Education, students may begin a course of study in either the fall or spring semester.
