UVM Sees 9% Application Increase For Next School Year

This year high school seniors flooded the University of Vermont with applications! Much more than the school typically receives.
BURLINGTON, Vt. -  This year high school seniors flooded the University of Vermont with applications! Much more than the school typically receives.

UVM says they've received more than 24,000 applications for next school year. That's a 9% increase.

UVM says this will likely lower their acceptance rate of students. The school will not change the number of Vermonters admitted to the school. Their target number is nearly 3,000 new students and say they believe they can keep enrollment at a steady level.

"We have a lot of contigency planning to be able to do that," Beth Wiser, UVM Director of Admissions, said. "One of the benefits is there actually is a deadline students have to adhere to and that's happened at many schools."

The school says if more students than expected enroll at UVM, it will figure out how to accommodate them.
