Student Services

Welcome to the Rubenstein School. The Student Services folks are here to help students navigate the many processes and opportunities in RSENR and across UVM. If you have questions about your major, are looking for a form or an internship, need help or encouragement of any kind, or simply want to visit, we are here to help.

Our Student Services staff are housed in both the Aiken Center Dean's Office and the Bittersweet Building. These pages provide information about our many services as well as connect you to the proper person or office. Please take some time to explore here as many of your questions can likely be answered with some research.

Our success is deeply connected to your success. Let us welcome you again and we all look forward to working with you.
