Like the first day of spring, or the day that we “spring ahead” in time, the annual college selection deadline comes every year. It is a momentous occasion as students and parents make their final college decisions. The next ten days for me, while stressful in some ways, is my favorite time of year when we see the culmination of nearly two years of work in building this class. We share the excitement that students feel when making their decision to come to UVM. And the good news…it is only the beginning of the lifelong relationship we have with students who decide to attend UVM.
We have had a number of students make the decision at our admitted student visit days. Nothing is better than to celebrate, in person, with students as they pay their fee. Second best is to see when students take to social media to announce their decision. Here are a couple of examples:
The Class of 2019 is coming together nicely. We know that many students will make their decisions in the next ten days. We’re here to help! Have questions that we can answer? Please be in touch with our admissions staff. I’ve been answering a lot of questions about advance placement credit, orientation, changing majors once at UVM, the new Wellness Environment community and scholarships and financial aid. We want to be sure that all questions are answered as students make their final decision.
Is UVM your choice? Be sure to pay the acceptance fee either online (preferred) or by sending the acceptance fee in the mail. Next Friday, May 1, is the deadline. Have you selected another school? Please be sure to withdraw your application (again online, email firstname.lastname@example.org or return the card in the mail that was included with the letter of admission).
Good luck with your decision! We can’t wait for you to join the other members of the Class of 2019 who have already said yes to UVM!
