Tuition and Financial Aid

At the University of Vermont, we understand that choosing to start a new career or take on more responsibility is a big decision, both personally and financially.  We’re here to help you make an informed decision and equip you with the financial information, support, and resources you need during that process.  Our program is certified for VA benefits and can be eligible for State Department of Labor grant funding.

Tuition & Payments

Payment for the certificate program happens on a course-by-course basis.  Each course costs $1495, and payment in full is due two weeks before the start of the course(s) you are registered for.  You have the option of paying in full by credit card or check when you register, or by making a minimum payment of $100 at registration, ensuring that the balance due is paid two weeks before the course begins.
