Expenses for Out of State and International Students

Lyndon’s out-of-state tuition is the lowest of any Vermont residential college or university.

The Open Frontiers Scholarship (’17-’18 school year only) awards qualified, out-of-state students $5,500 each year they are enrolled in any degree program at Lyndon. International students also qualify for the Open Frontiers program until spring 2018.

These savings can be stacked with the Lyndon Scholars Award to save up to another $5,500 for a total savings of up to $11,000.

To qualify as an incoming student, students must have at least an 80 percent grade average in high school. A 2.5-grade point average (GPA) is required to remain eligible while attending Lyndon. The scholarship does not apply to graduate-level courses.
