GMC's Affordability Plan 2015

Green Mountain College has a strong historic commitment to make undergraduate education flexible and affordable for Vermonters, and for students from across the U.S. and around the globe. Meanwhile, the value of a Green Mountain degree continues to rise—the College is consistently among the top performers in surveys conducted by The Princeton Review, U.S. News and World Report and Sierra magazine.

The College’s innovative resort and hospitality management program at the Killington School of Resort Management offers a bachelor of science degree which can be completed in three years—the program boasts a 99% alumni job placement rating. Two years ago, Green Mountain College launched the Vermont Tuition Match Scholarship for high school graduates in Vermont, in which GMC pledges to match the tuition levied by the University of Vermont for applicants who meet our admission standards and who enroll full-time. Now, Green Mountain College is launching several new initiatives to make a Green Mountain College degree more attainable.

“We want applicants to know they have the option of attending a Vermont private institution with the advantages of small classes and strong student advising, and that opportunity is not out of reach financially,” said Green Mountain College President Paul Fonteyn.

Green Mountain College offers career-related employment options for student through all four years at GMC. Refer to these links for other ways GMC is making college more affordable.

Through affordability efforts, Green Mountain College is able to award scholarships/grants of over $10 million dollars through a combination of institutional discounting and endowment scholarship funds.

“Currently 97% of all GMC students receive financial aid, with over 95% receiving institutional support, to help offset the cost of their college education,” according to GMC Student Financial Services Director Wendy Ellis, who notes that about 25% of GMC students are the first in their family to attend college or university.

The College also maintains its commitment to a variety of students through its participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program, and through special rates for older adult citizens who wish to take classes. Undergraduate and graduate programs at GMC are approved for veteran’s benefits under the GI Bill, thereby offering eligible military veterans an opportunity to attend Green Mountain College at reduced rates. The College offers dramatically discounted rates ($570per three-credit course) for older adults wishing to continue their studies. They may also audit one course each semester for free.
