Continuous registration is a status for graduate students who have completed all requirements of their program, but are still working on their thesis. The cost associated with continuous registration status depends on the level of work a student will perform during the semester: the equivalent of full-time, half-time, or less-than-half-time enrollment. Students who enroll in continuous registration and take additional credits, will be billed tuition and fees for both the continuous registration status and the additional enrolled credits. Please also note the Health Center Fee information in the Additional Fees section below.

Continuous Registration
Level of Effort Course Designation Continuous Registration Fee Graduate Student Senate Fee Health Center Fee
Less-Than-Half-Time Effort GRAD 901 $100 $7 See Health Center Fee information below
At least Half-Time, but less than Full-Time Effort GRAD 902 $200 $10 $311 if UVM health insurance purchased
Full-Time Effort GRAD 903 $300 $10 $311

Financial Aid for Continuous Registration: Financial aid applicants whose effort is at least half-time will be offered financial aid to meet the continuous registration fee, student senate fee, and to cover estimated living expenses, books, supplies, etc. View an example of the budget on which financial aid eligibility is based. Students whose continuous registration effort is considered less-than-half-time are not eligible for aid.

Enrollment in Continuous Registration & Other Credits: Students who enroll in continuous registration (GRAD 901, GRAD 902, GRAD 903) and in other coursework at the same time, will be billed the tuition and fees for both the continuous registration status and the additional enrolled credits. See the charts above for the fees associated with regular coursework. For these students, financial aid eligibility will be based on the total enrollment. The financial aid budget for these students will vary based on the level of effort for continuous registration and the number of other enrolled credits.

Additional fees

Student Health Insurance

Health insurance is mandatory for graduate students enrolled in 9 credit hours or more. Each year students must either elect to purchase the UVM health insurance, or waive the UVM health insurance by providing information about their current, non-UVM, insurance policy. Students must make this decision each year. Students enrolled in at least 5 credits may purchase the UVM health insurance. The estimated annual premium for 2014-2015 is not yet available. More details are available at the Center for Health & Wellbeing.

Health Center Fee

The Health Center Fee is mandatory for students enrolled in 9 or more credits, including students enrolled in continuous registration at a full-time level of effort (GRAD 903). For students enrolled in only GRAD 903, the estimated Health Center Fee of $311 per semester will be billed separately to the account. For students enrolled in 9 or more regular credits, the Health Center Fee is billed as part of the comprehensive fee which is $892 for 2014-15.

Students enrolled in 5 to 8.99 credits who choose to purchase the UVM health insurance will be billed the Student Health Center Fee of $311 per semester. The enrollment of 5 to 8.99 credits may be from regular enrollment, enrollment in continuous regisration GRAD 902, or a combination of continuous registration and regular course enrollment.
