Visiting Undergrads

INFORMATION FOR VISITING STUDENTS

Registration and Enrollment: Open enrollment invites all undergraduates currently enrolled in any college or university to Pre-Register for summer courses at UVM (no obligation). By completing the Pre-Registration Form, students are provided with a UVM Student Identification number from the registrar’s office and a netID for email and student portal access.

  • Activate Your Net ID: After you pre-register, within 1-2 business days, UVM will create an email account and NetId for all students. Activate your UVM “NetID” by going to www.uvm.edu/account.  Your NetID (your UVM user name that connects you to your UVM e-mail address) is usually your first initial and 7 letters of your last name (but this may vary).  After you have activated your NetID, you will be prompted to set up a password, and given instructions as to how to access your e-mail account, which may be forwarded to any other account you have. All official UVM correspondence, including billing notices, will be sent to your UVM email account. It is very important to check it often.  The best way to access your UVM e-mail is through myUVM.  The logo for myUVM is located at the top right of all UVM webpages, next to “Search UVM.”
  • Log into your myUVM: As a student, you have access to the web-based student portal. This is where all of your information is kept, as well as where you will go to register for courses, view your schedule, add/drop/ withdraw from a course and access your billing information. You can access this system by going to myUVM at: https://myuvm.uvm.edu. This myUVM portal link is available in the top right corner of every page on the UVM website.
  • Adding/Dropping a course – To register for a course, log into your myUVM portal and select the Add/Drop/Withdraw menu. Keep in mind that during the summer the add/drop periods are much shorter. You can reference the add/drop deadlines here: http://www.uvm.edu/~summer/summer-add-drop-and-withdrawal-dates/ Those dates are also available under each summer course description.
  • Withdrawing from a course – if you wish to withdraw from a course after the drop deadline, you can do so from myUVM portal during the withdrawal period, by clicking on Add/Drop/Withdraw button. Refund of tuition is based on the date of course withdrawal. Check the course description for specific dates.Students who simply stop attending classes without completing one of the formal procedures listed above will not be automatically dropped or withdrawn from the course and will likely receive a failing grade on their transcript.

Tuition and Fees: Tuition is discounted 30% from academic year tuition. Vermont residents, even if attending a college or university out-of-state, qualify for the UVM in-state rate. Carefully review Tuition and Fees and Financial Aid information. Make note of the UVM billing cycle and that My UVM Portal can be used to access financial details. Only UVM students are allowed by FERPA law to access their personal information (grades, transcripts, billing). Students may add an authorized payer to the billing section only from their UVM Portal.
