Financial Aid for International Students
Green Mountain College offers generous, but limited, financial aid for international students. GMC operates on a need-aware admissions decision basis for international applicants. Merit scholarships and need-based scholarships are available for international students, but no applicant should expect Green Mountain College to cover the complete costs of tuition, room and board, fees and books. International students should realistically expect to contribute significantly to the cost of their own education.

To be considered for any scholarships or grants, International Students must complete two forms:
