What Else You Need to Know About Tuition & Fees
Vermont Tuition Rate vs. Out-of-State Tuition Rate
Residency status is determined when you are admitted to the university and generally remains the same throughout a student's UVM career.
Tuition and fee charges are the same whether a course is taken as an audit or for credit.
Enrollment in Multiple Degree Programs
If you are enrolled in multiple degree programs simultaneously, standard tuition rates will apply to all courses (including specific approved special reduced tuition rate programs).
Accelerated Master's Programs
Students accepted into accelerated master's programs will continue to pay the standard undergraduate tuition rate until they have completed their undergraduate degree.
- Your bill reflects the number of credits you were enrolled in when your bill was generated. Enrollment changes will display on your next bill.
- Please take a moment to review the UVM tuition refund dates and policy.
Student Health Insurance
Health insurance is mandatory for graduate students enrolled in 9 or more credit hours. Each year students must either elect to purchase the UVM Student Health Insurance Plan (UVM SHIP), or waive UVM SHIP by providing information about their current non-UVM insurance policy. More details about UVM SHIP are available at The Center for Health & Wellbeing Website.
UVM Health Fee
The UVM Health Fee is mandatory for students enrolled in 9 or more credits. For students enrolled in 9 or more credits, the UVM Health Fee is incorporated as part of the comprehensive fee. For students enrolled in Continuous Registration, the UVM Health Fee will be billed as a separate charge to the account if UVM SHIP is purchased.
Students enrolled in 5 to 8.99 credits who choose to purchase UVM SHIP will be billed the UVM Health Fee.
Mandatory Comprehensive Fee
The comprehensive fee is a fee paid by all students in support of programs and services that support student success and strengthen the University community. The Comprehensive Fee supports a wide range of services, including those that students have access to whether taking their courses on campus or through remote/online options. The Comprehensive Fee supports the University’s maintenance of critical academic, athletic, health, technology, and community infrastructure, as well as library resources, academic support services, online learning platforms, career counseling, student organizations, and more.
