Institutional Scholarships and Grants
PLEASE NOTE: If a student earns SVC scholarships or grants with the addition of outside awards or tuition reduction, SVC holds the right to reduce the SVC scholarship accordingly.
Southern Vermont College offers scholarships and grants designed to assist in payment of the tuition bill. Eligibility for these awards is based upon a variety of criteria, including but not limited to, academic merit, financial need and community service. Regardless of the type of institutional award, it may not exceed the cost of tuition when combined with other awards that are designed for tuition only. All students who receive Southern Vermont College Grants/Scholarships are required to maintain at least a 2.0 GPA. Students who earn less than this standard will have an opportunity to appeal if there were extenuating circumstances that occurred during the academic year.
Institutional financial aid is awarded for full-time study (at least twelve credits per semester) during the fall or spring semesters only. Institutional grants or scholarships may be awarded for study during the summer semester at the discretion of the Director of Financial Aid. Generally, an otherwise eligible applicant may be granted institutional aid award(s) for full-time study during the summer semester if the summer is the final semester of study toward the degree. Similarly, if a student enrolls for a final semester of attendance and less than twelve credits are required for the degree, institutional financial aid eligibility may be awarded in an amount proportional to the percent of full-time tuition charged to the student. In any case, the student must submit a written appeal for extension of the institutional financial aid eligibility for semesters of part-time study or for full-time study during the summer semester, to the Director of Financial Aid.
Students who withdraw from the College or enroll for part-time study will become ineligible for institutional financial aid awards indefinitely. If a student must take a semester off or enroll part-time study for one semester and he or she wishes to defer eligibility for an institutional financial aid award until a subsequent semester of full-time study, he or she must submit a written request for such a deferment to the Director of Financial Aid. Any such deferment of financial aid eligibility will be at the discretion of the Director of Financial Aid and will be for one semester only.
If a student withdraws from some or all credits during a semester and is liable for less than 100 percent of the tuition charges, institutional financial award(s) will be proportional to the percent of tuition liability for that semester. In such as case, the student would be responsible for any account balance that may result.
