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.


Approved Degree Programs


Undergraduate Degree Programs


Terms and Conditions
  • These undergraduate majors have been approved for all matriculated University of Vermont students from the eligible states indicated.
  • To qualify for the RSP tuition discount, students must declare a degree in a program approved for residents of their state prior to the beginning of a semester.
  • In order to retain eligibility for the discounted tuition rate, students must continue to actively pursue their approved degree program by enrolling in at least one course per semester which applies toward their degree. If at any time during a semester a student enrolled in the RSP program drops or withdraws from all courses applying toward their degree, they will no longer be eligible for reduced tuition and will be billed accordingly.
  • Further, if a student switches to an unapproved major during the semester, they will no longer be eligible for reduced tuition and will be billed accordingly.
  • Approval for eligible NEBHE programs is not retroactive; therefore the discount cannot be applied to past terms.
  • It is the responsibility of the student to review the tuition bill statement each semester to confirm the RSP tuition discount is applied. If the RSP tuition discount has been approved but is not listed on the bill, please contact Student Financial Services.
  • Students participating in a study abroad program are ineligible for the RSP tuition discount for the term(s) abroad.
