Getting started

Welcome to Intersession at Virginia Commonwealth University. We’re confident that you’ll be able to find what you need from more than 40 courses offered in the two-week session.

All three-credit courses for Intersession are taught Dec. 27, 2017, through Jan. 9, 2018, during the winter break closing schedule. Classes will not be held Jan. 1, 2018.

Who can attend?

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

If you are attending VCU for an Intersession 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
