I submitted my application several days ago and my counselor sent my transcript but my application status is still incomplete. Should I send another transcript?
Our goal is to process your admissions application materials within 1 to 3 business days. You may also upload supplemental materials via the Application status page.
Can I send in an additional essay or revised essay and/or additional recommendations after I've submitted my application?
We are happy to accept additional information for your application. You may upload supplemental materials directly on your Application status page.
How do I send in my official transcripts?
All high school grade reports or transcripts for student applicants must be sent directly from the student's high school to be considered "official". High schools that have software supporting the Common Application or Coalition Application forms may submit official documents electronically for those students who have submitted the online Common Application/Coalition Application or the high school can send them via regular mail or another courier service (we are not able to accept emailed or faxed transcripts).
College transcripts must be sent directly from the College or University attended. These can be mailed (address below) or sent electronically from the Registrar's Office to: firstname.lastname@example.org

How do I send my SAT or ACT scores?
In order for scores to be considered official, students must submit scores to UVM directly from the testing agency. UVM 's SAT code is 3920 and UVM's ACT code is 4322. We are not able to accept scores that are printed on a high school transcript. Supplemental information such as official transcripts, official standardized test results from the testing agency, and letters of recommendation can follow shortly after the deadline and are not required to be received by the application deadline. Only the common application needs to be submitted by the stated application date.
SAT/ACT scores are not required for transfer students.
Should I submit my first term grades?
UVM does accept first-quarter and/or mid-semester grades.
Please have your high school guidance or college counseling office send updated grades as they become available. We are able to accept these grades via electronic submission (i.e. through Naviance/Common App) or via postal mail.
When will I hear about scholarships?
Merit scholarship notification is typically sent within two weeks of the letter of admission, beginning in mid-December. Your application for admission is your application for merit scholarships. All merit-based scholarships are released by the end of March.
When will I know if I've been invited to join the Honors College?
Students invited to join the Honors College typically receive their invitation within three weeks of their letter of admission. All honors invitations will be sent out by the end of March.
How do I apply for financial aid?
UVM requires a student to complete only the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be considered for financial aid. The CSS profile is not required nor reviewed by UVM. UVM's federal school code to include on your FAFSA is 003696 (the FAFSA becomes available on October 1).
The priority deadline is February 1 (for spring applicants who have previously filed a FAFSA, please add UVM's school code, 003696, to your current FAFSA). Visit UVM's Student Financial Services website for additional information.
