Southern Vermont College Joins Tuition Rewards

Southern Vermont College (Bennington, VT), a small, private, liberal arts college, has joined Tuition Rewards. SVC offers its 500 students a transformative living and learning experience. We call it Affordable Excellence.

Affordable Excellence is 21 career-enhancing programs of study. It is faculty committed to student success -- and who put teaching and advising first. It is a student-to-faculty ratio of 17:1, allowing for smaller classes – an average 16 per class. It is a vibrant and active community beyond the classroom, with Division III sports, clubs and organizations, community service, student government and an array of special programming.

Affordable Excellence is all of this and more at a cost significantly less than many private colleges -- and comparable to many state institutions. For 2009-2010, SVC's total cost of tuition, room and board is just $27,520.

Our student body is diverse. Students come from 20 states and six countries. Approximately 17% of our students identify as belonging to a non-majority racial or ethnic group. The most popular majors at SVC are business (5 different majors, including a new program in entrepreneurship), nursing, criminal justice, radiologic technology and psychology. 82% of our graduates have job or graduate school placements one year after graduation.
