Registration is based on earned credit hours. This does not include hours for classes in which you are currently enrolled. View your earned hours in eServices to determine your registration time. To do so: Log into eServices and view your earned hours located on your undergraduate transcript. Be sure to look at the part that says “Transcript Totals (Undergraduate) Earned Hours/Overall.”
Full-time and part-time degree-seeking students, but not nondegree-seeking students, are classified
by credits earned as follows:
Freshmen – 1 to 23 credits
Sophomores – 24 to 53 credits
Juniors – 54 to 84 credits
Seniors – 85 credits and more
The Schedule of Classes is available on the web at http://www.pubapps.vcu.edu/scheduleofclasses/.

Prerequisites are established so students are prepared with the knowledge base needed in order to understand and apply the new information being taught in a class. The current registration system allows students to register for courses that they are not eligible to take. Therefore, the department and/or professor that offer the course will screen for students who do not meet the prerequisite requirement, and may administratively drop the students from the course prior to the end of the add/drop period. It is your responsibility to be sure you have the prerequisites completed before enrolling in a subsequent course.
A “major restriction” message indicates that the course is restricted to a particular school, and the Banner system does not recognize you as being a member of that major. If this is in error, please see your academic advisor. Your advisor will determine if you meet the requirements for admission into your major. If so, you may be allowed overrides into advanced classes. Consult the VCU undergraduate bulletin or speak with an advisor if you are unsure of the requirements for admittance into your major.
If you are receiving financial aid you will need to consider the impact that a withdrawal could have on your aid. Students with less than full-time status may lose part of their financial aid package. Students should go to the Office of Financial Aid for advising. Secondly, if you have a hold on your account you will not be able to withdraw from a class on e-services. However, students with holds can still withdraw in person at Records and Registration.

If you repeat a course in which a "D" or "F" was earned on the first attempt, you may request that only the better grade be counted in computing your cumulative GPA. This option can be used for the removal of only one grade of "D" or "F". The excluded grade will still appear on your academic record but will not influence your GPA. A historical repeat form must be submitted to the Student Services Center at Founder’s Hall in order to request the repeat course option. In order to have a grade excluded from your VCU GPA, the class must be repeated at VCU.
Students in degree programs must get permission before enrolling in courses outside of VCU. Speak with an academic advisor to make sure that the classes you are planning to take will transfer. Credits earned at other institutions carrying a grade of “D” are not accepted for transfer.
No. Transfer of business courses from two-year institutions is limited to courses offered by the School of Business in the lower division (freshman and sophomore years). For a course to be considered for acceptance into the advanced program, it must be completed in a business program that is accredited by the AACSB International and is at a four-year university.
No. The GPA for fulfillment of VCU degree requirements is computed only from courses taken at VCU. The grades and quality points of transfer courses are only evaluated in the computation determining graduation honors.
It depends. If a student is scheduled to be enrolled in a core foundation course (UNIV 200, ECON 210, ECON 211, SCMA 171, SCMA 212, ACCT 203, ACCT 204), has a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.500 and at least junior standing, the student may be allowed overrides into advanced classes. If the student does not have junior standing or the required GPA, overrides will not be granted.
