Two-Year Accelerated JD Admission and Financial Aid
For exceptional candidates
Candidates seeking admission to the accelerated Program must specify for the AJD in their application. Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the applicant's academic and professional qualifications.
Because this is a pilot program for the academic year 2013 - 2014, there is a minimum requirement of 10 students. If the program is under-enrolled, accepted students will be offered a scholarship and a place in the three-year JD class.
The AJD and the JD program have the same academic requirements. Thus, after completion of the AJD I, students who wish to extend their studies and return to the three-year JD program are able to do so at no additional cost, upon approval of the Vice Dean of Academic Affairs.
The cost for the accelerated option is equivalent to two years of the traditional program. Tuition payments are billed at the beginning of each semester and divided equally over the three semesters each year.
Financial aid is available for all terms. Federal Student Loans can help cover the cost of the program. For detailed information about the Federal student loan options, go to http://www.vermontlaw.edu/Admissions/Tuition_and_Financial_Aid.htm
