Cost Chart Eight: Professional Pilot Technology

In addition to tuition and other fees, the Professional Pilot Technology program requires Flight Fees specific to mandated flight courses with flight time in the aircraft and flight simulators for each of the FAA certificates and ratings.

Flight fees are applied to individual flight courses and are charged for the semester that each flight course is taken. The fees outlined below are based on the number of hours the average student takes to complete each course.  Additional flight time may be required due to a host of variables, including individual learning style, personal commitment, illness, or weather conditions. Any additional ground or flight instruction required will be billed on an hourly basis until successful completion is reached.

A full syllabus for all ground and flight courses, on campus or at the airport, are available as a handout and will also be posted on both the Vermont Tech website and the Vermont Flight Academy website. This would include pre-flight, post-flight briefing topics, and maneuvers and procedures for simulator instruction and airplane flying for all courses.

If a student chooses not to take the Multi-Engine ratings and the two additional Certified Flight Instructor ratings (Instrument and Multi-Engine), s/he may take an appropriate 3 credit elective to replace the three 1 credit courses and not obtain the last 3 ratings during the senior year.

Flight Fees

Course Flight Training Fees Flight Hours Credits
AER 1020 Private $12,655 55 2
AER 1120 Instrument 12,334 52 2
AER 2031 Commercial I 17,923 85 2
AER 2032 Commercial II 8,909 35 2
AER 3020 CFI: Airplane 6,723 25 2
AER 4010 Multi-Engine: Land 5,374 10 0.5
AER 4011 Multi-Engine: Sea 4,968 7.5 0.5
AER 4020 CFI: Instrument 4,883 15 1
AER 4030 CFI: Multi-Engine 11,374 25 1

All required courses for the BS degree must use full flight hours.
All courses commence as 141 with an enrollment certificate. If sufficient training is received to complete the FAA check-ride with fewer hours, students can be dropped as 141 students and receive an FAA Part 61 check-ride to complete. When this occurs, excess funding must be returned to the VA or the student’s account after financial scrutiny of fewer hours flight training.
Students choosing not to take any of the last four courses totaling 3 credit hours may require another 3 credit hours for 121 credit hours minimum to graduate.

Other Estimated Expenses

FAA Medical Examination

A FAA 1st Class Medical Exam must be completed by an authorized Aviation Medical Examiner and a copy submitted to the aviation program director or the Office of Admissions by June 1 to be admitted to the program. Estimated medical expense is presently $150. A $50 urine drug screening is also required; students may not need any additional medical during the degree program.

FAA Written Exam Fees

A total of six FAA exams are required for certifications and ratings during the four-year program. Each exam costs $150 and is taken at a Laser Grade Testing Center, as required by the FAA. Vermont Flight Academy operates a full Laser Grade Testing Center at the flight school.

FAA Examiner Fees

FAA certifications and ratings require the successful completion of written and flight exams. The flight exams must be given by an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner.  Before each flight, FAA Examiner Fees are paid directly to the examiner at the time of their Oral and Flight Test for each certificate and rating. Present fees vary from $300-680 per check ride depending on the certificate or rating.

Pilot Equipment

Students will require: headsets, Federal Aviation Regulations, aviation charts, plotters, E6-B flight computers, aircraft syllabus/course books, flight logbook, oral & practical test prep guides, FAA Practical Test Standards for each course, etc. A list of all required materials will be handed out and posted on the website. Textbooks for non-flight aviation courses are not included. Estimated cost for the four-year program is $1,700 - 2,000.

Insurance

Vermont Flight Academy carries liability and physical damage (hull) insurance. VFA extends limited liability coverage to students. However, students are responsible for the insurance deductible (in the event of a loss). It is mandatory for each student to purchase an individual non-owner policy for $314 per year. This provides student liability protection for legal defense; deductible and loss of use; and subrogation.

Appropriate Dress

Aviation is a profession. Students are expected to dress appropriately in ground and flight classes at all times. During flight training at the airport, dress appropriately for the season in which you are operating.

iPhones and iPads

These devices are widely used in aviation and recommended with multiple apps to assist pilots with convenient access to weather, navigation, approach charts, and regulations.

Deferred Payment Fee: $54 per semester

This fee is charged to students who request that payment of semester charges be deferred because an outside source (employer, VA benefits, etc.) will be providing payment past the normal due date directly to Vermont Tech.

Facilities Fee: up to $410 per semester

This fee is charged per semester to all matriculated students. Full-time equivalent students (12 credits or more) are charged per semester.

All graduating students are charged a fee prior to graduation and must pay the fee whether they are participating in the ceremony or not. The fee is charged per degree.

Health Insurance Fee: $2,328 per year

A student (or their parents) must present written proof certifying that they are covered to be exempted from the college insurance fee. An online Student Waiver form for the VSC Student Health Insurance Plan must be completed by all full-time students. This form can be found on the student menu in Web Services. Students failing to return the form by the published deadline will automatically be enrolled in and billed for the VSC Health Plan.

Textbooks and Supplies

The college bookstore sells textbooks, supplies, equipment, calculators, and sundries. The cost of required textbooks and supplies varies depending on the program. Typically, these costs amount to approximately $700 per semester. The bookstore accepts credit cards and cash. Upon approval from the Business Office, students who have financial aid to cover college expenses plus books will be eligible to charge books to their student accounts 30 days prior to the start of each semester.

Automotive Technology and Construction Management students are required to have their own tools. Contact the directors of these programs for details.

Calculators

The Vermont Tech mathematics department requires all entering students to have a contemporary graphing calculator for use in mathematics classes. For those taking Technical Mathematics and Calculus, the mathematics faculty recommends either a TI-83 or TI-83+ or an HP-48 or HP-49. We highly recommend that students taking a business math or statistics course have the TI-83 or TI-83+. Although calculators may be bought at local stores, they are also available at the Vermont Tech bookstore.

Other Expenses

College students will incur a variety of other expenses such as the costs of travel, social activities, and laundry. The total of these expenses is difficult to judge and can probably best be determined by each student and their family. The college estimates these costs at about $1,650 a year.

Deposits

Accepted candidates for admission to the college are required to send a $200 tuition deposit by May 1 (or within two weeks if accepted after May 1). The deposit is considered a token of a student’s good faith and is applied to the first semester’s tuition and fees. Students are not enrolled in classes or billed semester costs until the deposit is paid.

If a student intends to live on campus, a $100 room deposit must be sent by May 1 (or within two weeks if accepted after May 1) and must accompany an applicant’s completed Room and Board Contract. For returning students, the $100 room deposit is due in early April. Deposits are non-refundable except for a returning student’s room deposit if a refund is requested prior to May 1.


Housing deposits will be placed in a holding account until the end of the spring semester, at which time they will be placed on students’ accounts and go toward any dorm damage fines that may be incurred for the academic year. Any amount not used for damage will be refunded to the student at the end of May if no other balance remains on the student’s account. If a balance remains, the deposit will be applied to the balance.

Payment Authorization

Students can authorize a parent or guardian or anyone else they choose to access, log in, view, and/or make a payment on their account via the web. Students must complete this process, as Student Accounts staff must know who has permission for account reviews when calls or emails are received from people other than the student.

Semester Payment Plans 

Fall plans will be available online beginning June 1 or when billed. Select the VSC Bill Payment for Students and Authorized Users link at the bottom of the page. You must have a log-in ID, a password, and a billing statement to access this service.

We offer five convenient in-house plans for fall (see http://www.vtc.edu/student-accounts for other semester plans:

  • Six payments from June through November
  • Five payments from July through November
  • Four payments from August through November
  • Three payments from September through November
  • Two payments from October through November

There is a $30 enrollment fee and a down-payment required when signing up based on the option chosen. Monthly payments are due on the fifteenth of each month and a $15 late fee is incurred for payments not made by the due date. Semester balances must be paid in full prior to enrolling in future semesters. A new payment plan must be set up each semester.

As a condition of enrollment, students must provide payment in full or proof of how all semester charges will be paid within 30 days of billing. Fall billing begins on June 1.

Veterans who are certified as eligible for the GI Educational Assistance allowance will be permitted to register upon signing an approved payment plan with the business office.

Employer and scholarship payments requiring final grades can be deferred.

Financial delinquency may serve as a basis for dismissal. Financially delinquent students will be denied enrollment for the succeeding semester; issuance of grades or transcripts; or graduation. Reasonable interest and collection costs may be added to delinquent accounts.

Refunds

Tuition, Fees, & Room & Board

If students withdraw or are dismissed before the 60% point of the term, they will be credited tuition, the student activities fee, room, and board on a prorated basis. The date of withdrawal or dismissal is determined by the Office of the Registrar. The prorated calculation will use the number of calendar days completed divided by the number of total calendar days included for the full term.

Financial Aid Refunds

If a student is receiving financial aid and is eligible for credit in accordance with the above paragraph, the credit received will first be applied to financial aid sources. Federal regulations will be used for return of Title IV funds and individual state, college, or outside scholarship policies for return of non-Title IV funds. Because financial aid funds must be used for educational expenses, when a student who is receiving financial aid for non-institutional costs withdraws from the college, a portion of this aid must be repaid. The order of distribution for the return of Title IV funds will be as follows:

  1. Unsubsidized FFEL/Direct Stafford Loan
  2. Subsidized FFEL/Direct Stafford Loan
  3. Perkins Loan
  4. FFEL/Direct PLUS Loan
  5. Pell Grant
  6. FSEOG
  7. Other Title IV programs
Other Credits

Board charges will be credited for each full week of extended illness or authorized absence. There will be no credit of room charges for students suspended or dismissed from on-campus housing.
