Vermont Tuition Benefit

As of 2022, eligible Vermont Guard members can get tuition paid at any Vermont college or university, including Champlain College, for up to the current in-state tuition rate at University of Vermont.

With the truED Preferred Tuition rates that guard members (as well as their spouses/domestic partners, and eligible adult dependents) receive through a special agreement with the Federal Government, which is well below the in-state rate at UVM or any other four-year Vermont college or university, you can earn your degree or certificate for little to no debt!
