Getting started

Welcome to Winter Sessions at Virginia Commonwealth University. We’re confident that you’ll be able to find what you need from numerous courses.

All three-credit courses for Intersession are taught Dec. 27, 2023, through Jan. 9, 2024, during the winter break closing schedule. 

Who can attend?

Winter Sessions is open to current VCU students and students visiting from other institutions.

If you are attending VCU for a Winter Sessions course only, you will register as a nondegree-seeking student. Nondegree-seeking students must meet VCU’s eligibility requirements. Students who are currently seeking a baccalaureate degree at another college or university must be in good standing at their home institution and must have a letter from their home institution approving the courses they will transfer. Visit the Registration page to learn more.

Non-U.S. citizens and non-U.S. residents can find information about academic and financial requirements, admission, passports and visas, and registration for international students on the Office of Admissions website. For more information, contact (804) 828-6016 or email at
