New England Board of Higher Education RSP Tuition Break

The University of Vermont, in participation with the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE)'s RSP Tuition Break program, offers discounted tuition to permanent residents of New England States wishing to pursue select degree programs not available in their home state.

Visit the official NEBHE site here.

Students enrolled in an approved program pay an increased percentage of instate tuition rather than the full out of state rate. Beginning in the Fall of 2007 students enrolling in an approved program will pay 175% of instate tuition. For questions about the tuition rate contact Student Financial Services at sfs@uvm.edu.
