Support for Veterans at UVM

Each year, Continuing and Distance Education (CDE) helps thousands of non-traditional students continue their education at the University of Vermont. Through collaborations with the various colleges and schools, we offer courses and programs to help students explore their options, whether they are planning a career change, looking for personal enrichment or professional development, or preparing for an undergraduate or advanced degree.

Advising and Student Support Services

CDE has a staff of personnel dedicated to helping people access the University of Vermont. Our role is to aid in the course selection process by understanding your experience and goals, guide you through registration and be a resource during your time at the University. Curious if your past college credits apply at UVM? Want to understand where a program will take you after completion? Looking for resources for financial aid, tutors or UVM policies? Contact CDE and talk to an advisor to learn more. You have the goal; let us help you achieve it at the University of Vermont.

Guaranteed Admission Program

If you don’t have SAT scores, or don’t meet admission requirements you can look into the Guaranteed Admission Program (GAP). Upon successfully completing a series of approved college courses and one-on-one sessions with a CDE academic advisor, you will be positioned for guaranteed admission into the UVM undergraduate program of your choice.

UVM Student Veteran Services Office

UVM is increasing support services for veterans by increasing financial aid. Please visit the Scholarship and Educational Benefit Programs for Veterans website to learn more.

With the recent addition of David Carlson, Coordinator of Student Veteran Services, academic support services and a campus-based student veteran organization are just two of the many integrated services for veterans. Read more about available services and supports.
