Enrollment in Non-M.D. Coursework

Policy 915.00

Policy Statement

Enrolled medical students may register for elective coursework outside of the Vermont Integrated Curriculum at the University of Vermont.

While actively enrolled in the MD program students may not enroll in courses that will be used to fulfill graduation requirements for another degree program.

Policy Elaboration

Additional tuition based on number of credits and the type of course the student chooses will be assessed above and beyond the Larner College of Medicine (LCOM) tuition and associated fees. For the full tuition and fee schedule, please visit the LCOM Medical Student Financial Services page. Payment of tuition for non-medical courses may not be covered by any financial aid sources.

Please review the Medical Student Handbook Policy 590.10 - Medical, Family and Personal Leave of Absence for more information regarding enrollment in coursework pursuant to an additional degree.
