Discussion of UVM's Admissions Standards

The University of Vermont has selective admissions --- over a quarter of all applicants will not get in, and those who are admitted tend to have strong grades and standardized test scores. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. Most successful applicants had GPAs if "B+" or better, combined SAT scores of 1100 or higher, and ACT composite scores of 23 or better. You're chances are best if those numbers are a little higher.

Note that there are some red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) mixed in with the green and blue in the middle of the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that were on target for UVM did not get in. At the same time, you'll notice a few students with lower grades and test scores who were accepted. This is because the University of Vermont uses the Common Application and has a holistic admissions process. The admissions officers will want to see that you have taken rigorous college preparatory courses, not courses that get you an easy "A." Also, they will be looking for a winning essay, interesting extracurricular activities, and strong letters of recommendation. Finally, the UVM supplement to the Common Application asks you to identify your potential major. Your choice can affect the admissions decision -- some programs such as business and nursing have restricted enrollments. Music and Music Education applicants need to audition.
