The Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program is a UVM certificate program, with tuition charged on a per-credit basis up to 12 credits, which is full-time enrollment.
Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program students may be eligible for federal financial aid in the form of Federal Stafford and/or Federal PLUS loans, as well as alternative (private) student loans.
To apply for federal financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by enrolling in a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester to qualify for financial aid. Students also need to complete an “Intent to Enroll” form with their advisor every semester.
For more on the application process for federal aid and alternative student loans, please visit the Student Financial Services website.
UVM’s Continuing Education Scholarships
Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Course Scholarship for Summer 2015
We are pleased to offer a one-course scholarship for the first 25 admitted students who start the program in the Summer 2015 term. To receive the scholarship, enrollment in and completion of two or more summer courses (3 or 4 credits each) is required. Students must be among the first 25 admitted summer-term students to return their decision form and register for two summer courses of at least 3 credits each. The scholarship will cover the tuition for one course, whether you are a Vermont resident or a non-resident. No application beyond the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program application is required.
More benefits of starting in the summer:
- Enables you to complete the program in time to apply early in the cycle of most professional health programs
- Tuition is 30% less for courses taken during the Summer term
- Helps you move through the required courses faster
Through the generous support of the Hillman Foundation, a $1,000 scholarship is available for a student enrolled in UVM’s Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program. Candidates will be considered based on academic strength, service to community, and financial need.
