Southern Vermont College offers scholarships and grants designed to assist in payment of the tuition bill. Eligibility for these awards is based upon a variety of criteria, including but not limited to, academic merit, financial need and community service. Regardless of the type of institutional award, it may not exceed the cost of tuition when combined with other awards that are designed for tuition only. All students who receive Southern Vermont College Grants/Scholarships are required to maintain at least a 2.0 GPA. Students who earn less than this standard will have an opportunity to appeal if there were extenuating circumstances that occurred during the academic year.
