Registration

Congratulations to everyone on another successful VCU Intersession. The dates below will be updated in early October for the 2017-2018 session.

Registration for Intersession begins Oct. 31, 2017. Follow the spring registration calendar to determine when you are eligible to register online. All students, regardless of eligibility, can register in person at the Student Services Center in Harris Hall beginning Oct 31.

How to register

Current students

Current VCU students can register for Intersession courses through eServices until the first day of class. In-person registration at the Student Services Center will only be available until Dec. 20, 2017, with the exception of Dec. 27 from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

Nondegree-seeking students

Nondegree-seeking students must first apply for nondegree admissions through the online application or in person at the Student Services Center. The deadline for submitting the application is Dec. 20, 2017. If you have questions about this process, contact ssc@vcu.edu or (804) 828-1550.

If applying in person, bring a picture ID and the following:

Once enrolled, you’ll be able to register for classes through eServices. You must have your online registration access set up before Dec. 20, 2017, as the Student Services Center will be closed after this date except for Dec. 27, when a representative will be available between 8:30 a.m. and noon.

To request an official transcript, visit Records and Registration or call (804) 828-1349.

Overrides

Overrides are processed in the Student Services Center. To request an override for class size or prerequisite restrictions, contact the course instructor or academic department. The Summer Studies and Intersession Office cannot issue overrides.

Registration for audit

To audit a course during Intersession, students must register in person at the Student Services Center on Dec. 27, 2017. Changes from credit to audit are not allowed. Students who audit pay regular tuition and fees, are subject to attendance regulations and may be subject to other course requirements.

Course load

Each Intersession course is designed to give one semester’s worth of work. Due to the nature and time structure of the courses, students may only take one class during Intersession. Audited courses are counted as part of the course load. The Summer Studies and Intersession Office will not grant overrides to take multiple classes.

Intersession classes are intensive and demanding. Students experiencing academic difficulty should consider this advisory carefully before registering.

Enrollment changes

Add/drop

During Intersession, the add/drop deadline is 11:59 p.m. of the first day of class, Dec. 27, 2017. Because these deadlines are strictly observed and because there are no partial refunds for Intersession, students must add or drop classes before the deadline. Adds or drops may be made through eServices or in person at the Student Services Center during regular office hours.

Withdrawal

After the last day to add/drop a class, students may withdraw from a class through eServices.

The last day to withdraw is Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018, by 11:59 p.m. There are no refunds for withdrawals during Intersession; the full class cost will remain on the bill.

Students who withdraw receive a grade of “W” on their academic records. Failure to withdraw by the established deadlines may result in a failing grade.

Advising

Students are encouraged to speak with an advisor prior to registration. Continuing degree-seeking students are assigned advisors by their schools and departments. All first-year, undeclared, pre-health professions and nondegree-seeking students are advised through University Academic Advising.
