Earlier this month, UVM announced that we will waive the $55 application fee for any first year student who chooses to apply for fall 2013 enrollment as an early action candidate.
Since his arrival on campus, President Tom Sullivan has shared his commitment to addressing affordability for our students and future students interested in attending the University of Vermont. As a small but important step in helping with the cost of applying to college, he has waived the application fee for all students applying early action to UVM, something that has been done successfully with our Vermont students. For early action applicants, UVM is able to provide an admissions decision by mid-December, providing prospective students more time to learn and explore the opportunities available at UVM. Early action at UVM is not binding; students admitted to UVM have until May 1, 2013 to make a decision.
Why now? President Sullivan just recently completed his second month as President of UVM and he is beginning to articulate his vision and goals. We will offer the same benefit to EA applicants next year.
The November 1 Early Action deadline is an application deadline, and not a completion deadline. This means that students can still send supporting information after Nov. 1. Test scores, transcripts. and letters of recommendation can follow after Nov. 1.
We hope that any first year students who are interested in applying early action will take advantage of this opportunity to apply to UVM with no application fee. Our staff is happy to answer any questions about the application process. Check out our guidelines for applying as well as our application check list to help in this process!
We look forward to receiving your early action application!
