VCU is ready for you, are you ready for VCU?
We've compiled the following resources to help you get the best start possible in your classes this semester. Take a few minutes now to complete the steps below (and check out some helpful advice from our instructors) to make sure that you're ready to start the semester strong.
Understand course modality and mini-term classes
Make sure that you understand the differences between these course modalities and start taking steps to be successful online. Mini-term classes can offer you the flexibility to take courses in your preferred formats. You can find mini-term classes in eServices by doing an advanced search for February-term, March-term, or Spring Minimester attributes.
Make changes to your schedule
Make any changes to your schedule in eServices prior to the start of classes. Final adjustments can be made according to the deadlines in the Academic Calendar. DegreeWorks and Major Maps can answer some of your questions about your course requirements, but your advisor or program director is the best person to answer questions about adjustments to your schedule.
Complete Responsible Together training and submit your vaccination records
Together, we will take the necessary steps to protect the well-being of our community. Students attending fall classes must report their vaccination (if the vaccine requires two doses, both doses should be reported) to University Student Health Services no later than July 15. You must complete the Responsible Together course by Tuesday, August 24, or by the time you arrive on campus for move-in, on-campus classes or to access any activities on campus
