RSP-Approved Programs

Vermont Tech participates in the Regional Student Program (RSP), which allows eligible students from other New England states to pay 150% of Vermont's in-state tuition instead of full out-of-state tuition. Under RSP, a student's eligibility varies based on the desired program of study. For example, if a student's home state offers a similar program, the student is ineligible for the RSP unless his or her legal residence is closer to Vermont Tech than to the location of the home state's program. For details about your RSP eligibility, contact the Admissions Office.
