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.

VCU is dedicated to serving the needs of Virginians by providing off-campus graduate credit instruction when and where it is needed. Courses are offered in response to an expression of need from various locales and groups.

Off-campus instruction features the same course work available on campus, and most off-campus courses are fully degree-applicable within the admission standards of the Graduate School. The official policies and procedures of the University Graduate Council, as published on this Graduate Bulletin website and on the Graduate School website, are fully applicable to all off-campus graduate programs and graduate students.

Tuition for most off-campus classes is the same as other university classes; however, students in off-campus credit classes are not charged university or activity fees.

For additional information on off-campus credit instruction, contact Edward Howard, director of continuing studies, Division of Community Engagement, 920 W. Franklin St., Richmond, VA 23284-3062, telephone (804) 828-8819, or visit the Division of Community Engagement website.
