After You Apply

Check Your Application Status

We encourage you to check your application status online so that you may know all of your application materials have been received. Upon receipt of your application, we will provide you with login information and a PIN giving you access to a page reporting the status of your application. If you have already received your PIN, you can check your application status online.

Frequently Asked Questions: After You Apply

How do I check to see if my application is complete?

You will need the following information to check your status online:

Application status website: www.uvm.edu/admissions/appstatus
ID number: UVM ID
PIN: your birth date (mmddyy)

If you have misplaced your ID number, please call the Office of Admissions at (802) 656-3370. We will release this information to the student only.

Do my transcript or test scores need to be in by the application deadline?

Supplemental information such as official transcripts, official standardized test results from the testing agency, and letters of recommendation can follow shortly after the deadline and are not required to be received by the application deadline. Only the common application needs to be submitted by the stated application date.

I submitted my application several days ago and my counselor sent my transcript but my application status is still incomplete. Should I send another transcript?

In most cases the delay in completing your application is due to the volume of mail received around application deadlines. We thank you for your patience.

Can I send in an additional essay or revised essay and/or additional recommendations after I've submitted my application?

We are happy to accept additional information for your application (please make sure your name and address information is on each page). We recommend that you mail the information to:

The University of Vermont
Office of Admissions
194 South Prospect Street
Burlington, VT 05401
How do I send in my official transcripts?

All high school grade reports or transcripts for student applicants must be sent directly from the student's high school to be considered "official". High schools that have software supporting the Common Application forms may submit official documents electronically for those students who have submitted the online Common Application or the high school can send them via regular mail or another courier service (we are not able to accept emailed or faxed transcripts).

College transcripts must be sent directly from the College or University attended. These can be mailed (address below) or sent electronically from the Registrar's Office to: collegetranscriptsubmission@uvm.edu

How do I send my SAT or ACT scores?

In order for scores to be considered official, students must submit scores to UVM directly from the testing agency. UVM 's SAT code is 3920 and UVM's ACT code is 4322. We are not able to accept scores that are printed on a high school transcript. Supplemental information such as official transcripts, official standardized test results from the testing agency, and letters of recommendation can follow shortly after the deadline and are not required to be received by the application deadline. Only the common application needs to be submitted by the stated application date.

SAT/ACT scores are not required for transfer students.

Should I submit my first term grades?

UVM does accept first-quarter and/or mid-semester grades.

Please have your high school guidance or college counseling office send updated grades as they become available. We are able to accept these grades via electronic submission (i.e. through Naviance/Common App) or via postal mail.

When will I hear about scholarships?

Merit scholarship notification is typically sent within two weeks of the letter of admission, beginning in mid-December. Your application for admission is your application for merit scholarships. All merit-based scholarships are released by the end of March.

When will I know if I've been invited to join the Honors College?

Students invited to join the Honors College typically receive their invitation within three weeks of their letter of admission. All honors invitations will be sent out by the end of March.

How do I apply for financial aid?

UVM requires a student to complete only the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be considered for financial aid. The CSS profile is not required nor reviewed by UVM. UVM's federal school code to include on your FAFSA is 003696 (the FAFSA becomes available on January 1).

The priority deadline for first-year applicants is February 10, and the priority deadline for fall transfer applicants is March 10 (for spring applicants who have previously filed a FAFSA, please add UVM's school code, 003696, to your current FAFSA). Visit UVM's Student Financial Services website for additional information.
