Division for Academic Success


The Division for Academic Success (DAS) offers disability and academic support services to students in the VCU Health Sciences schools: Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy.

DAS also provides disability support services to students on the MCV Campus who have a documented disability. If you would like to request accommodations, it is recommended that you meet with a staff member at least four weeks before classes are scheduled to begin. The meetings are confidential and are one on one.

Our mission is to create inclusive and accessible learning environments and facilitate academic success through innovative services and programs in partnership with faculty, staff and students at VCU.
