Academics: Know How All Works!

VCU and VCUarts Qatar expect students to be responsible for knowing the university's policies, procedures, and regulations, both general and specific, academic and other.

As such, it is the responsibility of all students, both undergraduate and graduate students, to be familiar with their respective Bulletin-of-record (i.e. the Bulletin in effect at the time of their initial enrollment), including the institutional and program-specific academic and non-academic regulations.
