Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
Personally, I feel it is all worth it. For out of state students it is a very expensive school, but it is a good school and worth the time and money you will be putting into it. You will be getting a lot more in return.
Azaria from Rochester, NH
One of the more expensive schools, yet definitely worth it, there are a lot of great financial aid opportunities.
Kierstin from Guilford, CT
I am an in state student, but most of my friends are from around the country. Although they have all fully enjoyed their time at UVM, it has been somewhat of a financial struggle.
Megan from Charlotte, VT
I can't really say yet as I am still attending UVM. I do know that if you are and out of state student, like myself, expect hefty loans and debt. In the end, my advice is to look up lots of scholarships because you can't pass up the chance to attend UVM.
Brandy
UVM is expensive for out-of-state students, but the facilities, faculty, and food are worth the high cost.
Marc from Bethlehem, CT
Personally UVM has been very generous with scholarships and loans. I had been fearful that I wouldn't be able to go to UVM because of the high expense and, from what I'd heard about the school, they tend to prefer people in state. Fortunately this wasn't the case and most of the tuition will be paid for and the rest in loans.
Sarah from Merrick, NY
It's similar to the price you get from a lot of other colleges if you're from out of state and UVM awards scholarships to many students.
Hannah from Danville, PA
It's a state school which means cheaper tuition. Cheaper tuition is good. The overall quality of the school does not really show its price tag. Everything else (i.e. books, food, fun) is just as expensive as anywhere else.
First Year at Groovy UV
No college is perfect. I'm an out-of-state student, so my rating's a little harsher. I feel I am pretty much getting my money's worth in education, but the food is a bit overpriced. If you get the points meal plan, get the more points one.
