UVM Admissions

The new president of the University of Vermont wants to make the school harder to get in to for out-of-state applicants.

President Tom Sullivan, who took office in July, says increased selectivity is a part of his vision for "enhancing quality and affordability" of the school.

By the standard measure of selectivity, UVM was slightly less selective in 2012 than it was a decade ago. In the fall of 2002, UVM agreed to admit 71.5 percent of applicants. This year UVM accepted 76.6 percent of applicants.
