Student Financial Services
Common Student Charges & Fines
UVM Student Financial Services issues bills for charges incurred across the University. Student Financial Services cannot adjust, waive, or provide a detailed explanation of charges assessed by other campus departments.
Supplemental Room Charges/Credits: Entering first-year students are initially billed before their actual room assignment is known and are billed for a traditional double. The bill is adjusted once an actual room assignment is determined. This will result in an additional charge if the actual room is more than a traditional double, or a credit if it is less expensive. Room charges are also adjusted throughout the year based on room changes or changes in the number of roommates. Please direct any questions about room charges to Residential Life at (802) 656-3434.
Course Specific Fees and Lab fees: These are additional fees for materials and/or services associated with certain courses, such as a fee for art supplies or certain software. For questions about the specific materials or services funded by a lab or course fee, consult your course instructor.
IRA (Inter-Residence Association) Fee: The Inter-Residence Association (IRA) fee is billed to all students who are living on campus. For details on what this fee covers and the amount, please click here.
Health Center Charges (including lab and miscellaneous): The UVM Student Health Center does not bill directly to health insurance providers. Charges are billed to the student’s UVM account. Students are provided a summary of charges when leaving the health center which may be used to request reimbursement from a health insurance provider. Questions about health center charges should be directed to the Student Health Center at (802) 656-3350.
Grp Ex (Fall/Spring): This is a charge for Group Exercise. These charges are assessed for various group exercise classes run by campus recreation. Examples include yoga classes and fitness training classes. Questions about group exercise charges should be directed to the campus recreation department (802) 656-3070.
Residence Hall Damage Charges: Damages to residence hall rooms and common areas are charged to your student account. Charges will be assessed if a student is found directly responsible for any damange (i.e. “assigned” damage). Charges may also be assessed to all students in a community if there is damage to the common areas and no single responsible party is identified (i.e. “unassigned” damage). Any questions about residence hall damage charges should be directed to Residential Life at (802) 656-3434.
Library Fines: The Bailey-Howe Library and/or the Dana Medical Library may charge your account for any books or reference materials not returned on time.

Parking permits cannot be charged to your student account and must be paid for at Transportation and Parking Services.
Judicial Fines: Fines assessed through the student judicial process will be charged to your student account. Any questions about these charges should be directed to the Center for Student Ethics & Standards at (802) 656-4360.
