When a student is in the
process of deciding whether or not to come to UVM, they may have a lot of
questions about the University! During Admitted Student Visit Days, students
have the opportunity to come to campus and have discussions with people about
specific areas and visit places which will have a definite impact on their
future at the University.
ACCESS can help students learn more about our services by providing the admitted student with some specific information that relates to their disability. While Admitted Student Visit Days are in session, we are here for designated drop in times that can be found in the brochure provided by admissions and/or by calling our office (802-656-7753).
If you have received extended time as an accommodation in high school, then you will also be eligible for this on the Math Placement Exam. Please call our office at (802) 656-7753 for the password which will disarm the time limit on the exam.
Residential Life does not start the room assignment process until after the Orientation sessions. If you think that you will need to make a disability related housing request please visit our housing link:

This is the #1 piece of advice from other UVM students with disabilities: Consider a reduced credit load your first semester (4 courses instead of 5). Full time status is 12 credits. One less class can allow time to explore college level study skills and arrange support services. Starting your academic career with a solid grade point average (GPA) is crucial.
