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 encourages qualified international students, both immigrant and nonimmigrant, to seek admission to the university. See the Office of Admissions website for additional information.

As required by U.S. regulations and by VCU admission policies, nonimmigrant applicants must demonstrate satisfactory academic achievement, adequate English proficiency and the ability to finance all educational and living expenses. Applicants can refer to the freshman admission guidelines, transfer admission guidelines and admission procedures elsewhere in this section for specific requirements.
