Find Housing

Although VLGS does not offer on-campus housing, we maintain a housing website that hosts a searchable database of rental properties as a service to our students. The database is updated regularly. We strongly recommend setting up appointments with prospective landlords prior to visiting campus and securing housing well in advance of orientation. Students are responsible for finding their housing, but please reach out if you need assistance.

Request Final Transcripts

All offers of admission are contingent upon receiving an official transcript from your degree granting institution with degree earned and date conferred. This must​ be sent to the Admissions Office prior to the first day of classes. JD students who applied through LSAC are required to update their LSAC account with a final transcript and do not need to mail an additional final copy to VLGS. If the transcript you applied with is your final transcript with a degree conferral date, you do not need to send it again.

Class Registration

Incoming JD students are automatically registered for classes and do not need to take any action. Class schedules are generally available on Campus Web prior to Orientation. Master's and LLM students will register for classes with their adviser during Orientation. 

Attend Orientation

Orientation for all Fall programs will be held during the week of August 19, 2024. More information will be posted as we get closer to Orientation.

Deferment and Reapplication Policy

Vermont Law and Graduate School does not offer students the option to defer their enrollment to a subsequent year. If you are interested in joining us for the next enrollment year, you can request that we reactivate your application once that cycle begins. This will allow you to use your existing application documents saving you time and fees. Additional documents may be requested. Once reactivated, your application will go through the admissions review process. Admission standards vary from year to year and a prior admission to VLGS does not guarantee admission in a subsequent year. Scholarships are never guaranteed. If you do not enroll in the following year from your initial application, a new application is required.
