Accept your admission offer
Accept your admission offer by selecting the "complete your decision response form" on your UVM Graduate Application dashboard.
Pay your acceptance deposit
Confirm your enrollment at UVM by submitting the $500 nonrefundable acceptance fee online. You are able to do a credit card payment through your student financial tab on your myUVM portal. You would need to have activated your NetID to have access to the Student Financial Services tab in MyUVM (by completing your decision response form on the application dashboard). This will allow you to make an electronic payment. Please note it could take 3-5 days for you to receive your NetID.
Activate your UVM NetID and email
Activate your NetID and email after you have been offered admission (and check your UVM email regularly). Once your NetID is activated, you will be able to set up your UVM email account (where you will receive all official UVM correspondence). Follow steps on uvm.edu/account – be sure to have your UVM '95' ID available.
