Termination of enrollment

The university reserves the right to terminate the enrollment of any student for unlawful, disorderly or immoral conduct, or for persistent failure to fulfill the purposes for which he or she was matriculated. Any students whose relations are so severed forfeit all rights and claims with respect to the institution.

In addition to dismissal for failure to comply with standards of conduct described in the Rules and Procedures of VCU and the VCU Honor Code, a student may be dismissed from the academic unit in which he or she is enrolled for failure to meet academic requirements prescribed by his or her academic unit or failure to exhibit the attitudes and skills deemed necessary to function within the chosen professional practice. VCU recognizes its responsibilities to the health professions and to the consumer of health services. Therefore, any action by a student considered to be unprofessional conduct according to the code of ethics and the laws and regulations governing the student’s chosen profession shall constitute cause for disciplinary action.

Unprofessional conduct includes, but is not limited to:

  1. Fraud or deceit in gaining admission to the university, i.e., false or obviously misleading representations on the admissions application
  2. An act that violates the established legal standards regarding conduct of one person toward society, i.e., stealing, lying, cheating and slander
  3. Conviction of a felony involving moral turpitude

The VCU Bulletin is in transition! As we move from this first iteration of our online Bulletin to a new product and process, what you find on this website is information for the 2014-15 academic year.

While much of the curricular information remains the same, changes that were approved with the effective date of fall 2015 will not be reflected on this website. Prospective students may wish to contact the school or department that administers their program of interest in order to discuss the most current curriculum and concentration options.

Enrolled students who are completing their studies under an effective Bulletin may continue to access the archives at, where past Bulletins are available to reference or download.

Our anticipated launch of the new VCU Bulletin is July 2015. To follow our progress, visit the new Bulletin blog.
