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 undergraduates may enroll in 500-level courses with approval of their advisers and consent of the programs offering the courses. Highly qualified undergraduates approaching the last year of study may petition to enroll in a maximum of two 600-level graduate courses during the senior year of undergraduate study. Permission to enroll as an undergraduate in 600-level graduate courses must be obtained from the undergraduate academic adviser and the Graduate School. The total load must not exceed 16 hours of combined credit. Credit for any course is applicable toward only one degree unless a student is admitted to a course of study that allows a defined number of shared courses. Undergraduate students seeking permission to enroll in 600-level courses must have a minimum undergraduate overall and major grade point average of 3.0.

For undergraduate students repeating 500-level graduate courses, the undergraduate historical repeat policy applies only if the course is applied toward the undergraduate degree. A historical repeat may not be processed for 600-level courses.
