Immunization requirements

The commonwealth of Virginia and VCU require that all full-time students supply validated immunization records to University Student Health Services. This requirement must be completed prior to registering for second semester. Failure to meet these requirements will result in a hold placed on the student's second semester registration. The hold can be removed only upon receipt of the students documented records.

The immunization record must be completed fully and accurately. There are two ways a student may fulfill all requirements:

1. Students may have their health care provider transfer the information from their medical records and sign the form.


2. Students may complete the top demographic section of the Certificate of Immunization and attach a copy of official documents from undergraduate institutions, military records, high school or other records that fulfill all requirements to the Certificate of Immunization.

A copy of the Certificate of Immunization, which details the necessary immunizations, is available on the student health Web site at: [PDF].

Students who cannot provide documented evidence of all required immunizations must see their health care provider, health department or Student Health Services to complete all requirements.

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.
