Calendar Maintenance - The VMI website calendar is currently undergoing maintenance and upgrades. During this time, site visitors may experience brief access interruptions to calendar event pages. A notice will be posted when work has been completed. Thank you for your patience.


Once your STP application has been received, approved, and processed you will be emailed a confirmation letter that includes payment information and deadlines.

Please be advised that payment for the course(s) must be paid in full by 12:00 pm on Tuesday, June 18.  Refer to your confirmation letter (sent to email provided on STP application) for instructions on how to make payment. 

The cost of books varies according to the course and instructor, but on the average, the cost for books for the summer program is approximately $150.00. An estimate for weekend meals in Lexington is $50.00 per weekend. Students bringing cars to STP will be required to pay a vehicle registration fee of $40.

These charges must be paid in full by 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18 if you are attending the Summer Transition Program. You are not registered until all fees are paid. After the registration deadline students with unpaid fees will be dropped from class rolls.

Enrollment and payment after the registration deadline will require a late registration fee. The charges can be paid on-line or via telephone with a credit card. MasterCard, VISA, Discovery, and American Express cards are accepted. If a credit card is used a 2.6% convenience fee will be added to the total. Payment can also be made online via Echeck with no additional charge prior to the deadline.

Questions regarding payments can be directed to Student Accounting at 540-464-7213.

Questions regarding VMI Summer Transition Program can be directed to the Summer Session Office.
