Southern Vermont College, located in Bennington, Vermont, was a small private liberal arts college that underscored a personalized educational experience. Founded in 1926, the institution was nestled in the southwestern part of Vermont, near the borders of New York and Massachusetts, offering a pastoral campus environment with the historic Everett Mansion as its centerpiece, an embodiment of early 20th-century architecture. Prior to its closure in 2019, the college offered a spectrum of undergraduate programs with particular strength in healthcare, including nursing and radiologic sciences. While the college operated, students had the opportunity to live on campus with housing available through a selection of residence halls. Southern Vermont College's acceptance was moderately selective, striving to balance accessibility with maintaining academic standards. The college did not emphasize a large scale athletic program, instead focusing on the academic development and personalized advancement of its students within their chosen fields.

  320 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 31 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $25,236 plus fees of $275.
