Welcome to the University of Vermont!

A message from UVM President Sullivan:


What does your future look like without a college education? In all likelihood, it won’t be as bright. The days of getting ahead with a high school diploma have come to an end. A college education is becoming more important than ever in today’s competitive, global job market.

As President of UVM, I am committed to affordability, financial access, and helping students graduate on time. Our Precollege Program gives high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to take courses and earn college credit. At UVM, you can choose from more than 100 online and on-campus courses and explore career fields with professors who are leading experts in their fields.

With a University of Vermont degree, we’re helping to place graduates in high-quality jobs around the country and across the globe. Our students also are furthering their education at top graduate schools nationally and internationally.

The return on investment today for a college degree is significant. College graduates without advanced degrees had a median income of $49,648, and those with graduate degrees had a median income of $87,356. Meanwhile, the median income of a high school graduate who did not attend college was $28,659. Over the course of one’s working lifetime, a college graduate will earn over one million in dollars in earnings more than one who does not have a college degree. It’s clear that these numbers speak for themselves.

Do you want to make an investment in your future? Come to UVM to get an early start on your academic career and the chance to experience Burlington, America’s best college town. You won’t be disappointed!
