Tuition Calculator

Use our tuition calculator to get an idea of how much you may pay in tuition and fees. For a more comprehensive estimate that includes things like books and course fees, use our Net Price Calculator. The Net Price Calculator will ask you for your residency status and the number of credits you’d like to take. It can also estimate your financial aid eligibility!

Auditing a Class

Students may register to “audit” CCV classes for which they are academically prepared. The cost is the same as when taking the course for credit; however, students will not receive an evaluation, course grade, or credit for the course. Audit status must be declared at time of enrollment. View our Course Audit Policy.

Residency Requirements for In-State Tuition

In-state tuition rates apply to students who have maintained legal residence in Vermont for at least one continuous year prior to enrollment. Out-of-state students seeking in-state status must submit a completed In-State Tuition Application, and supporting evidence, to be considered for in-state tuition. As part of the Vermont State Colleges System, CCV follows the Vermont State Colleges’ Residency Policy. To apply for in-state tuition, use the In-state Tuition Application Form.

NEBHE and Good Neighbor Tuition Break Program

Permanent residents of other New England states may be eligible for the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) Tuition Break Program which allows them to pay a special tuition rate that is equivalent to the current in-state rate. To qualify, a student must be a permanent resident of and living in a bordering New Hampshire or Massachusetts county (Cheshire, Sullivan, Grafton, and Coos counties in New Hampshire, and Franklin and Berkshire counties in Massachusetts). Students may also be eligible if they are enrolled in a NEBHE approved degree or certificate program that is not available in their home New England state.

CCV’s Good Neighbor program allows New York residents living in Clinton, Essex, Rensselaer, and Washington counties to also receive a discount that makes their tuition equal to the current in-state tuition rate.

For questions about residency for in-state tuition or the NEBHE Tuition Break Program, please contact Karrie DeMers, admissions specialist, at karrie.demers@ccv.edu or 802-654-0557.
