Reapplying to the University as an Undergraduate

Applicants denied admission for a given semester may reapply for a subsequent semester, and should present new information that demonstrates an improved academic record. Students wait-listed or denied admission previously as high school students should be working toward completion of a minimum of twenty-one semester credits at the point of applying to UVM. Anyone reapplying must submit a new application form and application fee, and update any academic information. Essays may be adjusted to reflect applicant’s recent activities. These individuals should contact the admissions office to discuss academic work that would improve their chances for admission.

Under certain conditions, candidates offered admission who choose not to attend in a given semester can defer entry for up to two semesters with permission of the admissions office. Students who defer admission are required to pay the acceptance fee for the semester to which they applied and may not enroll in another degree program at another college or university. Students who wish to defer admission for more than two semesters from the term of the original application will be asked to reapply for admission. After that period, or if the admitted candidate failed to request deferred admission, another application and fee must be filed for review by the admissions office.

Readmission to UVM

A former degree student at the University of Vermont who withdrew for any reason must meet with the student services office staff of the student's former UVM college or school to request re-entry. The admissions office does not readmit former degree students.
