Visitors should allow time to find parking. There are several on-street parking options available (metered and lot), or guests can pay to use the 8th Street Parking Deck or the E and S Patient/Visitor Parking Deck.

New English Language Policy

Our international and non-native English-speaking students bring different perspectives and new thinking to our nursing programs. To ensure that all incoming students are prepared for VCU School of Nursing’s academic rigor:

International applicants and non-native English speaking applicants without a degree from a U.S. high school, college, or university, must provide additional information with their applications according to the English language proficiency guidelines in the VCU bulletin.

Undergraduate: http://international.admissions.vcu.edu/apply/undergraduate/

This policy is effective for the spring 2017 applicant pools and beyond. Please let us know if you have any questions about this new policy.
