Advising and Registration

The fall 2017 schedule of classes for course listings and descriptions became available on March 14, 2017. VCU encourages all students to make at least two advising appointments each semester with their designated academic advisor.

Ask your student if he or she has scheduled an appointment. If your student hasn’t scheduled an appointment yet and doesn’t know where to start, he or she can visit the University Academic Advising website for instructions about how to meet with an advisor before class registration begins.

For undergraduate students, course registration for the fall semester begins for most students in April. Some students (e.g. athletes, honors students) may have access to early class registration. Students have an assigned registration date based on the number of credit hours they have earned, which they can look up in their eServices account. Once they know their earned credit hours, students can determine their registration date here.
