Please direct billing, tuition, and payment questions to the Business Office at email@example.com.
Tuition bills are available in CampusWeb within a few days of registering for classes. Please note: a wait-listed seat is not equivalent to a registration. To access the bill, follow these steps:.
- Log into CampusWeb
- Click on the "Business Office" tab in the blue ribbon
- Click on the "My Billing Information" in the grey rectangle on the left of the screen
- Access the "Course and Fee Statement" under the CASHNet Online Payment tool header
- To pay using CASHNet, select "Go to CASHNET", and follow the set up instructions
You may also pay by check made payable to "Vermont Law and Graduate School".
You will not receive a paper copy of the bill, unless specifically requested – you will need to monitor your account online via CampusWeb.
Failure to receive a statement of account is not sufficient cause for extending payment due dates.
Tuition is due prior to the first day of class.
If tuition is not paid in full by the end of the term, you will not be able to sit for exams or register for future terms.
All students (degree seeking and non-degree seeking) who are enrolled in the Summer Session program are charged a non-refundable $205.00 Summer Student Administrative Fee.
Interest will accrue on your account at 12% per annum on all unpaid balances.
Transcripts will not be released to any student who has an outstanding balance with Vermont Law and Graduate School until the balance (and any applicable interest) is paid in full.
Please direct any questions about Financial Aid to the Financial Aid Office: firstname.lastname@example.org. Federal Student Aid is only available to students in degree-seeking programs. Students taking VLS courses toward a degree at another institution should contact our Financial Aid Office.
Students wanting to borrow federal loan funding to cover their summer educational expenses must complete a 2022-2023 FAFSA and be enrolled in at least 3 credits counting towards their JD, master's, and/or LLM Degree.
Cost of living funding is available and calculated for students based on the total number of days they are enrolled during the summer semester.
The Refund Policy can be reviewed here.
If you are an online student or taking an online, asynchronous class, please contact the Online Enrollment Advisor, Genevieve Nichols.
In-person classes will have a location designated in CampusWeb – the location correlates to the building, class, and time that class meets. Check out the PDF of the Campus Map.
All students at Vermont Law and Graduate School have access to the following resources.
The Julien and Virginia Cornell Library
Students taking Summer Session courses may access the databases and resources at the VLGS Library. Reference Librarians are available during business hours to help with research, and Library Guides are available online 24/7.
The primary legal databases are Westlaw and Lexis Nexis, and access is available via the library. Many professors at VLS also use TWEN (part of Westlaw) as a course-management platform. You may use TWEN to access course materials and syllabi, view or submit online assignments and exams, and exchange messages with your professors, classmates, and more.
To access Westlaw and Lexis Nexis you will need to set up your accounts. Even if you have an account from another institution, you will still need to set up a VLS account to access TWEN. Please contact the Electronic Resources & Technology Librarian, Sarah Scully, for assistance with Westlaw and Lexis passwords.
Canvas Online Learning Platform
Some residential classes use the Online Learning platform Canvas to deliver their course materials. Access to Canvas is part of your credentialing process, so you will use your VLS email address (the full address) and password to access your Dashboard. Once your professor has added you to the class, you will see the class in your Dashboard.
If you would like to participate in an Orientation to Canvas prior to starting your residential course, please contact the Online Enrollment Advisor, Genevieve Nichols.

ASP offers skill building through workshops, one-on-one consultation, and mentoring by upper-level students.

Whether you are preparing for your first exam or are searching for a mentor for a specific topic, ASP is here to help. You can visit ASP virtually by clicking here. If you would like to schedule a meeting with ASP or the Mentors during business hours – 8am to 4pm Eastern, Monday through Friday, please contact Katrina Munyon.
