Home State Promise

The Home State Promise

Home is the one constant during these times of uncertainty and change. It is a place intrinsically connected to feelings of safety and familiarity, and now, perhaps more than ever before, we all need that. This spring we have heard from many Vermonters interested in coming home for college, and we are pleased to extend our first-year and transfer application deadlines to June 1 for Vermonters.

At Saint Michael’s College you’ll find a community that is more family than classmates. A family of students, faculty and staff who truly care for each other and work together to uplift the human condition by not only doing well, but doing good in the world. And with our new Home State Promise, joining the Purple Knight family is more affordable than ever.

With the Home State Promise:

  • New incoming students will be guaranteed Saint Michael’s scholarships and grants totaling $25,000-35,000, depending on your financial need.
  • You can supplement your costs further by applying for the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation’s Vermont Grant. Apply for the grant here.
  • If this pandemic has impacted your family’s finances, our Office of Student Financial Services will work with you to gather the most up-to-date information and match you with all the aid for which you qualify.

*You must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and you’ll be considered for the full range of federal and Saint Michael’s need-based aid to ensure that a Saint Michael’s education is affordable for you and your family.

*The Home State Promise applies to first year and transfer undergraduate students only.
