Some Answers to FAQs

Are your programs offered online?

The University of Richmond values and is well respected for its in-person instruction. As a result, although some classes may be completed entirely or partially online, programs require in-person participation for some or all of the program of study.

What are your application deadlines?

We admit students into our graduate programs in three academic terms: fall, spring, and summer. Our application deadlines are July 15 for Fall, November 30 for Spring, and April 15 for Summer. Occassionally we extend our application deadlines.

Do you offer housing for grad students?

Our graduate degrees are designed for part-time learners. While you can complete our degrees by studying full time (3 courses per semester), most of our students take 1 or 2 classes each term. As a result, housing is unavailable for our graduate programs.
