Enrollment in Non-M.D. Coursework

Policy 915.00

Policy Statement

Enrolled medical students may register for a University of Vermont course outside of the Vermont Integrated Curriculum and/or voluntarily enroll in an elective undergraduate course that is not required for graduation from the MD program.

Please review the Medical Student Handbook Policy 590.10 Medical, Family and Personal Leaves of Absence for more information regarding enrollment in coursework pursuant to an additional degree. While actively enrolled in the MD program, students may not enroll in courses that will be used to fulfill graduation requirements for non-MD degree programs.

Additional tuition will be assessed above and beyond the Larner College of Medicine (LCOM) tuition and associated fee(s) and will be based on number of credits and the type of course the student chooses. For access to 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.
