For New Students

To be eligible for financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

VLS recommends that you complete the FAFSA by April 1st of the year you plan to enroll, at the same time you are completing your admissions application.

Vermont Law School’s FAFSA code is G11934.

To be considered for federal financial aid, a ​student must:

  • be enrolled at least half-time and be making satisfactory progress in the JD, Masters or LLM program;
  • be a U.S. citizen or an eligible non-citizen (see FAFSA instructions for definition of eligible non-citizen);
  • not be in default on a previous federal loan or owe a refund on federal financial aid received in the past;
  • be registered with the Selective Service (if applicable).

Financial aid is granted annually and awards are subject to student eligibility, availability of funding and program limits. A new FAFSA application must be completed each year. To obtain more information on any financial aid programs, please call the Financial Aid Office toll-free 1-800-227-1395 ext. 3 or email us at finaid@vermontlaw.edu.

For Returning Students
