Greetings from UVM Admissions!
In July, UVM will be welcoming a cohort of students to campus for a summer program focused on college preparation. The objective is to provide students entering their senior year critical insight into the college search and admissions process in order to increase their awareness and likelihood of post-secondary enrollment.

Special consideration will be given to students who are underrepresented in the landscape of higher education (i.e. students of color, lower SES and/or first generation students, etc).
All expenses and meals will be included (with the exception of transportation to/from campus). The program will take place on UVM’s campus from July 24-26.

If you are interested please see Ms. Kimball in the Guidance Office.
