What You Need to Know About Your Financial Aid Budget

Your financial aid budget is a total of direct and indirect costs at UVM, based on residency and housing. It is not tailored to individual living expenses or choices. You can receive financial aid (loans, grants, scholarships, work study, etc.) up to the full cost of attendance.

FINANCIAL AID APPEALS (BUDGET INCREASES):

The following are examples of financial aid appeals. Approved appeals generally entail an increase to your loans; increasing your debt.

Health Insurance

If you have enrolled in the UVM Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP), you may request an increase in your budget to assist with a portion of this fee (it will be prorated based on the academic year length). Once the premium has been billed to your student account, you can submit a request via email to increase your financial aid budget.

Student with Dependent Children

You may submit a request via email to SFS to increase your financial aid budget.

Computer Expense

On a case-by-case basis, our office will consider an increase to your financial aid budget for the purchase of a personal computer.

Winter Session

The winter session is considered part of your spring semester in terms of charges and financial aid.

If you will have additional costs for the winter session (travel study, course fees, extra tuition charges, etc.), you will need to email SFS to request that your financial aid budget for spring be adjusted to incorporate these costs. Include the CRN(s) and/or course code(s) for your winter session courses in your email. Additional aid is generally in the form of a Parent PLUS loan or alternative student loan.
