Tuition & Financing

We understand that choosing to continue your education and work toward your entrance into the medical field through our Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program 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.


It’s important to note there are many factors that will influence your tuition for the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program. Your tuition will vary depending on the foundational courses you’ve already taken, whether you’re in-state or out-of-state, and how many credits you take each term.

The average Post-Baccalaureate Premedical student at UVM takes 26 credits during the academic year and 8 in the summer.

In-State Tuition: $683 per credit

Out-of-State Tuition: $1720 per credit

*Note: The above represents per credit rates for the 2020-2021 academic year. The amount you pay for your program will vary based on a variety of factors. Be sure to consult your academic advisor. The Program Tuition and Fees chart is available on the Student Financial Services website.

Scholarships for Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Students

Fall Scholarship

Through the generous support of the Hillman Foundation and an anonymous donor, two scholarships  are available to students enrolled in UVM’s Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program. Candidates will be considered based on academic strength, community services, and financial need. To apply for the scholarship for the fall term, you must already be enrolled in the UVM Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program. You must also have a current FAFSA on file at UVM Student Financial Services and complete the online scholarship application.  The Fall 2021 scholarship has closed.

Summer Scholarship

The University of Vermont offers a scholarship to the first 20 admitted and enrolled students who are beginning the program in the summer term. The scholarship will cover the cost of one course (3 or 4 credits). To receive the scholarship, you must successfully complete two or more summer courses. There is no need to apply; your advisor will notify you if you are eligible for the scholarship.

One-Time Scholarship

UVM recognizes that financial barriers may prevent students from completing the Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program. Students who have exhausted their 12 month Federal Financial Aid package may qualify for a one-time scholarship, awarded primarily based on financial need. Qualified students will receive up to $1000 and may receive one scholarship during the course of the program. Scholarships do not have to be repaid and will be awarded to pay toward educational expenses (tuition, fees, textbooks, educational supplies) previously incurred or expected to be incurred.

The scholarship is intended to assist students in program completion. Post-Baccalaureate Premedical students are strongly encouraged to speak with an advisor about other scholarship and financial aid opportunities. Students who have already received a summer scholarship are not eligible for the one-time scholarship.

Financial Aid

Post-Bacc Premed students may be eligible for Federal financial aid in the form of Federal Direct Stafford and/or Federal Direct PLUS loans or alternative (private) student loans.

To determine the types of aid for which you may be eligible and the process for applying, please visit the Non Degree Financial Aid page on the Student Financial Services website.
