Student Loans for UVM Students

About University of Vermont

UVM StudentsUniversity of Vermont, or UVM, is one of the oldest colleges in the United States, founded originally as a private university in 1791. If you don’t really care about old stuff, you’ll still be interested in the fact that UVM later became a public university, and is one of the original eight Public Ivies. In its relatively long history, UVM has demonstrated a sense of progressiveness and equality. UVM’s founding charter declared that the University would not discriminate on the basis of religion; nor did UVM discriminate based on sex or race, for UVM was the first school to admit female and African American undergraduates to Phi Beta Kappa, the national honors society (in 1875 and 1877, respectively).

There are ‘hidden’ costs of attending any college that come up after tuition, room and board, fees, textbooks, and travel expenses have been addressed. Perhaps it’s the cost of a pizza on a weekend night, or of concessions at a basketball game, or spending a few dollars on Winter Carnival. Wherever you may spend some extra money, just be sure to factor in personal expenses to your budget, especially if you’re receiving UVM Financial Aid – you can’t afford to spend a dollar more than you account for.

Applying for UVM Student Loans

applying for loansWhile UVM may be expensive for in-state students, the UVM Financial Aid office is quick to provide financial aid to eligible students. 92% of undergrads receive financial aid through the UVM financial aid program. The process is pretty standard: UVM only requires the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), but before you submit your application, be sure to talk to the UVM financial aid office. Ask about any ‘free money’ awards you could receive, such as scholarships and university grants, as well as if you’ll need loans to cover the cost of attending UVM. Once you submit your FAFSA, you’re all set – you will receive a financial aid package with your tuition bill.

Students who need student loans to augment their UVM financial aid awards should be sure to exhaust federal loan options before turning to private student loans.
