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.

Students Enrolled in More than 18 Credits Per Semester

Undergraduate students enrolled in more than 18 credits per semester will be charged the per credit hour tuition rate for each additional credit above 18.

Audited Courses

Tuition and fee charges are the same whether a course is taken as an audit or for credit.

Enrollment Changes

  • 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.

Taking Additional UVM Courses While on a Study Abroad Exchange Program

If a student participating in a study abroad exchange program (where the fee is billed by UVM), enrolls in additional UVM courses, they will be billed the per credit rate for those additional credits they are taking at UVM, in addition to being charged the full study abroad fee.  This occurs regardless of the number of credits the student is earning through their study abroad exchange program.
