Virginia Commonwealth University

VCU students across the Richmond cityscape

Boosting success and social mobility

At Virginia Commonwealth University, inclusion and excellence don’t compete. We graduate more Pell-eligible and first-generation students than all our counterparts in the commonwealth combined. And all VCU students graduate at similar rates, regardless of where they come from. With more than 20 nationally ranked programs and 200+ degrees and certificates, we help people from every background realize their dreams.

We sweat the big stuff.

At VCU, everyone has a chance to do amazing things. Instead of being more selective, we move the needle by increasing access and graduation rates at the same time. No matter where you come from, we can help you go further.
