Explanation of Fees Application Fee: $38 This fee is required when a prospective student applies for admission to the college.


Students may choose from three meal plans:

The Gold Plan offers unlimited meals with $100 per year in debit points for the snack bar.

The Base Plan offers 12 meals per week with $150 per year in debit points The 8-Meal Plan offers 8 meals per week with $220 in debit points.

Challenge Exam Fee: $50 This fee is required when students take challenge exams for college credit or advanced standing.

Course Fee This fee is required to offset the cost of special projects or equipment for specific courses.

Course Change Fee: $17 per change This charge is for students who alter their schedules after the second week of classes.

Deferred Payment Fee: $50 per semester This fee is charged to students who request that payment of semester charges be deferred because an outside source (employer, VA benefits, etc.) will be providing payment past the normal due date.

Facilities Fee: up to $260 per semester This fee is charged per semester to all matriculated students. Full-time equivalent students (12 credits or more) are charged $260 per semester. The fee is pro-rated per credit hour for part-time students. Funds raised by the fee support the development of new facilities on the Randolph Center and Williston campuses. In billing, the fee is referred to as “VTC Facilities Fee”.

Graduation Fee: $73 All graduating students are charged a fee prior to graduation and must pay the fee whether they are participating in the ceremony or not. The fee is charged per degree.

Tuition & Fees Health Insurance Fee: $1,431 per year or $931 for spring semester Health insurance is mandatory for all full-time students not otherwise covered. A student (or his/her parents) must present written proof certifying that he or she is covered to be exempted from the college insurance fee. A Student Waiver Card for the VSC Student Health Insurance Plan must be completed by all full-time students. This card will be enclosed with the semester billing. Students failing to return the card by the published deadline will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the VSC Health Plan.

Late Financial Clearance Fee: $100 This fee is charged to students who have not paid or provided proof of how their current semester bill will be paid. Financial holds will be activated approximately 30 days into each semester and this fee charged.

Late Registration Fee: $48 This fee is an additional charge for students who do not complete the semester’s class registration process by the published deadline.

Matriculation Fee: $208 per year or $104 for spring semester This fee is to cover expenses incurred during orientation, including meals and room.

Textbooks and Supplies The college bookstore sells textbooks, supplies, equipment, calculators, and sundries. The cost of required textbooks and supplies varies depending on the program. Typically, these costs amount to approximately $500 per semester. The bookstore accepts credit cards, cash, and checks. Bookstore charge forms are available, upon approval, from the Business Office.

Automotive Technology and Construction Practice & Management students are required to have their own tools. Contact the directors of these programs for details.

Calculators The Vermont Tech mathematics department requires all entering students to have a contemporary graphing calculator for use in mathematics classes. For those taking Technical Mathematics and Calculus, the mathematics faculty recommends either a TI-83 or TI-83+ or an HP-48 or HP-49. We highly recommend that students taking a business math or statistics course have the TI-83 or TI-83+. Although calculators may be bought at local stores, they are also available at the Vermont Tech bookstore.

Other Expenses College students will incur a variety of other expenses such as the costs of travel, social activities, and laundry. The total of these expenses is difficult to judge and can probably best be determined by each student and his or her family. The college estimates these costs at about $1,650 a year.

Deposits Accepted candidates for admission to the college are required to send a $200 tuition deposit by May 1 (or within two weeks if accepted after May 1). The deposit is considered a token of a student’s good faith and is applied to the first semester’s tuition and fees. Students are not enrolled in classes or billed semester costs until the deposit is paid.

If a student intends to live on-campus, a $100 room deposit must be sent by May 1 (or within two weeks if accepted after May 1) and must accompany an applicant’s completed Room and Board Contract. For returning students, the $100 room deposit is due in early April.

Deposits are non-refundable except for a returning student’s room deposit if a refund is requested prior to May 1.

Payment Policy Billing and Payment Policy Paperless billing begins June 1, 2009 for the fall 2009 semester. Student Account statements, Student Insurance Waiver/Selection forms, and other relevant information will be available online. Students will receive a postcard when the first billing statement is available for viewing at https://blackboard.vsc.edu Tuition & Fees Who really pays the bill?

Students can authorize a parent or guardian or anyone else they choose to access, log in, view, and/or make a payment on their account via the web. Students must complete this process, as Student Accounts staff must know who has permission for account reviews when calls or emails are received from people other than the student.

Semester Payment Plans Fall plans will be available online at https://blackboard.vsc.edu beginning July 1st. We offer

three convenient in-house plans:

• Five payments from July through November

• Four payments from August through November

• Three plans from September through November There is a $30 enrollment fee and a down-payment required when signing up based on the option chosen. Monthly payments are due on the 15th of each month and a $15 late fee is incurred for payments not made by the due date. Semester balances must be paid in full prior to enrolling in future semesters.

As a condition of enrollment, students must provide payment in full or proof of how all semester charges will be paid within 30 days of billing. Fall billing begins on June 1st.

Veterans who are certified as eligible for the GI Educational Assistance allowance will be permitted to register upon signing an approved payment plan with the business office.

Employer and scholarship payments requiring final grades can be deferred. Please contact the business office for details.

Financial delinquency may serve as a basis for dismissal. Financially delinquent students will be denied enrollment for the succeeding semester; issuance of grades or transcripts; or graduation. Reasonable interest and collection costs may be added to delinquent accounts.

Refunds Tuition, Fees, Room, and Board If students withdraw or are dismissed before the 60% point of the term, they will be credited tuition, the student activities fee, room, and board on a pro-rata basis. The date of withdrawal or dismissal is determined by the registrar. The pro-rata calculation will use the number of calendar days completed divided by the number of total calendar days included for the full term.

policies for return of non-Title IV funds. Because financial aid funds must be used for educational expenses, when a student who is receiving financial aid for non-institutional costs withdraws from the college, a portion of this aid must be repaid. The order of distribution for the return of

Title IV funds will be as follows:

–  –  –

Other Credits Board charges will be credited for each full week of extended illness or authorized absence.

There will be no credit of room charges for students suspended or dismissed from on-campus housing.

Definition of a Vermont Resident The following criteria must be met by a student prior to being granted resident status for the purpose of admission, tuition, and other Vermont Tech charges.

• The applicant shall be domiciled in Vermont, said domicile having been continuous for one year immediately prior to the date of application unless the student has been in the Armed Services, Peace Corps, or other recognized national service organization and has retained Vermont as his/her permanent address during the period of absence and has returned to Vermont immediately following discharge from these services.

Changes in residency status shall become effective for the semester following the date of reclassification.

• Domicile shall mean a person’s true, fixed, and permanent home, to which he or she intends to return when absent. A residence established for the purpose of attending an educational institution or qualifying for resident status for tuition purposes shall not of itself constitute domicile. Domicile shall not be dependent upon the applicant’s marital status.

• The applicant must demonstrate such attachment to the community as would be typical of a permanent resident of his or her age and education.

• Receipt of significant financial support from the applicant’s family will create a rebuttable presumption that the applicant’s domicile is with his or her family Tuition & Fees

• An applicant becoming a student at an institution of higher learning in Vermont within one year of first moving to the state shall have created a rebuttable presumption of residence in Vermont for the purpose of attending an educational institution.

• A student eligible for tuition purposes to enroll as a resident student in another state shall not be enrolled as a Vermont resident.

• A student enrolled at Vermont Technical College shall be classified by the college’s Admissions office as a resident or non-resident for tuition purposes. The decision by the officer shall be based upon information furnished by the student and other relevant information. The officer is authorized to require such written documents, affidavits, verifications, or other evidence that he or she deems necessary

• The burden of proof shall, in all cases, rest upon the student claiming to be a Vermont resident and shall be met upon a presentation of clear and concurring evidence.

• A student with resident status will lose that status if he or she fails to meet the above requirements at any time. In this event, resident tuition and other charges shall continue in effect only until the end of the academic year.

• The decision of Admissions on the classification of a student as a resident or nonresident may be appealed in writing to the college’s Dean of Administration.

Further appeal of a student’s residency classification may be made in writing to the Chancellor of the Vermont State Colleges. The decision of the Chancellor shall be final.

Financial Aid Financial aid at Vermont Tech is based on the assumption that a student’s family will make the maximum effort to finance college expenses. Since there are many more demands on Vermont Tech’s financial aid resources than the college can possibly meet, assistance from the college has to be viewed only as supplemental to this family obligation.

All federal funds at Vermont Tech are awarded on the basis of financial need. All students who apply for financial aid by the March 1 priority deadline and who are eligible for assistance will be offered financial aid, subject to the availability of these funds. The amount of any award is determined by the amount of the student’s need as computed from information provided by the family on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) www.fafsa.ed.gov. Recent federal regulations mandate that a needs analysis be completed for anyone who applies for federal financial aid. It is important to file the FAFSA as early as possible to avoid delays in processing loan applications and other forms of campus-based aid. After March 1, late applicants will be considered for aid only after all on-time applications have been processed.

In an effort to be as consistent as possible with all students in awarding aid from the college, Vermont Tech’s Office of Financial Aid requests an official signed copy of a student’s and/or family’s latest federal income tax return. Please send only copies. The financial aid office uses imaging to maintain and track documentation sent to the office and all originals are shredded accordingly.

Applicants can expect that a fair portion of an individual’s personal savings at the time of each year’s application will be applied to college expenses.

Expected Family Contribution The needs analysis system evaluates all of the information requested and determines a reasonable contribution to be expected from the parent and student towards the student’s educational expenses. Unless there are extenuating circumstances, the Office of Financial Aid is required to use this expected family contribution in determining a student’s need for college aid. If family financial circumstances change significantly after filing the FAFSA (due to loss of employment, extended illness or disability, etc.), the family should write to the financial aid office as soon as possible, outlining this change in personal resources.
