Vermont Law School recognizes that a legal education is becoming more costly each year, both for the student and the school. In the face of these rising costs, Vermont Law School is doing everything possible to keep cost increases to a minimum, to increase available financial aid and to provide assistance to as many students as possible. It is important for students to apply as soon as possible after October 1 for financial aid.

The policy of Vermont Law School is to support equality of opportunity for persons, regardless of race or ethnic background. No student will be denied financial aid, or be otherwise discriminated against, because of age, disability, race, color, sexual orientation, religion, sex, or national or ethnic origin. Federal regulations governing Title IV programs require United States Citizenship or Permanent Resident Status as a stipulation for eligibility for federal aid.
