Enrollment and Registration

Important information for students after the payment of the acceptance fee.


All entering first-year students for fall semester are required to participate in virtual orientation events, including course registration, from June through August. An on-campus orientation program will be required between move-in and the start of classes. First-year students entering UVM in the spring semester are required to attend January Orientation, held prior to the start of spring semester. Transfer students are strongly encouraged to attend one of several programs offered prior to the semester they enroll. For more information, visit the UVM Orientation website.


All students entering as first-time, first-year students are required to live on campus for their first four semesters. New transfer students who are under the age of 20 the first day of classes are required to live on campus for their first two semesters. New transfer students 20 years old and older the first day of classes may request on-campus housing, but it is not guaranteed. For more information, visit the Residential Life website.  

Class Registration

An academic advisor helps prepare the first semester class schedule. First-year students entering in the fall semester register for classes in June and July working with the advisor virtually. First-year students entering in the spring and transfer students entering either semester meet with an academic advisor at an Orientation session and may need to formally register for classes at that time.

Immunization and Health History Forms

Pre-matriculation health requirements must be completed and submitted to the UVM Center for Health and Wellbeing Student Health Services before a student’s first term at UVM. The deadline for students entering in the fall semester is June 15th; the deadline for students entering in the spring semesters is December 1st. These requirements are presented in both paper and online forms. New students will receive detailed instructions regarding the immunizations required by Vermont state law. Further details about health requirements can be found on the Center for Health & Wellbeing website.
