Countdown to May 1

For two years, we have been working on building the Class of 2021. UVM has been in touch with students, some beginning in their sophomore year of high school. And this weekend, the last members of the Class of 2021 will raise their hands and say YES! This class will number nearly 2,500 talented, passionate and interesting students who will come together for the next four years. The Class of 2021 will leave their footprints on the campus community and will strengthen this place. At the same time, there will be wonderful new friendships made, learning will happen, disappointment will turn into opportunity, and challenge will create new resilience – all important characteristics of student development through the undergraduate years.

For the students who have already said yes….WELCOME! Share your good news on social media #uvm2021. Encourage your other classmates. Meet fellow class members on the UVM Class of 2021 Facebook group (be sure to connect with the official page). Check out the new student checklist. Finish strong. Good luck on AP exams. Send us your final high school transcript. Tell the other schools to which you have been admitted that you would like to withdraw your application since you will be attending UVM.

For students who are still deciding this weekend….we look forward to your decision by the end of the day on Monday. We want you to become a Catamount! As a reminder, you can pay your $495 acceptance fee online at the admissions portal. You can use a credit card or electronic check on this site. The ability to pay online will be available until midnight ET, May 1. The ability for a student to pay their acceptance fee after May 1 will be on a space available basis.

Our staff, as well as the Student Financial Services staff, will be available on Monday, beginning at 8 am (SFS opens at 9 am) to assist with any last questions.

The start of this post was about the fact that we have an outstanding Class of 2021 coming together. Here are a few message from them….

Can’t wait to welcome the UVM Class of 2021!
