SVC Admissions:

Thoughts from the Admissions Desk

It’s time to file your FAFSA. SVC is ready to help!

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015 by Jeremy Gibbons

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should be submitted for any student seeking financial aid at Southern Vermont College. While the application may be submitted anytime after January 1, most families wait until their taxes are complete before filing the FAFSA.  We recommend that you do this as soon as possible.  Once you’ve submitted your FAFSA, the Office of Student Financial Services will process your application and send you an individualized Student Financial Aid Package detailing both gift aid (scholarships or grants) and need-based aid (federal loans and the like) that you qualify for.  After you receive this report, a member of our Student Financial Services team would be happy to meet with you and review your package in detail.  Our personalized approach to service and commitment to making sure you understand the information in this process is very important to us.


  • Southern Vermont College’s federal school code is 003693.
  • We ask that you submit your FAFSA by February 15.
  • Our staff is here to help – don’t hesitate to reach out.
  • 90% of our students receive financial aid.
