Enrollment Options

Vermont Tech offers a number of different enrollement options for transfer students, advanced standing and non-degree courses. In addition, through its affiliation with the Vermont State College System, students at Vermont Tech can take classes at other VSC schools for full credit.

Transfer Credits

If an applicant has attended another college, Vermont Technical College requires an official transcript of grades from the college(s) attended. This should be submitted with the application for admission at the time of application.

If credit for courses previously taken at another institution or advanced standing is desired, this fact must be clearly stated on the application. Credit for applicable college courses taken may be granted for those courses completed with a grade of "C" or better; however, the transferred grades will not be computed into a student's Vermont Technical College grade point average. Courses taken at an accredited institution on a pass-fail basis may be transferred; however, Vermont Technical College may require the student to obtain a grade equivalent in the course from the institution at which the course was taken. Examinations may be required to show competence of subject material. Vermont Technical College will be the final judge as to what transfer credit it accepts.

There is a $50 fee for college transcript evaluation. Transfer credit varies depending upon a number of factors, such as the student's academic record, the college or university selected, and the program selected. Credits earned at Vermont Technical College are transferable to other colleges or universities only at the discretion of the receiving institution.

Advanced Standing

Candidates for admission may be granted advanced standing in a degree program by transfer to Vermont Tech of courses from other accredited postsecondary institutions as described above; advanced placement examination (e.g. CEEB); recognized equivalent military or similar courses; credit by challenge examinations; and consideration of previous relevant experience through petition to the appropriate academic department (sometimes requiring challenge examination).

Non-Degree Courses

Students are welcome to take courses without applying to a degree programs, and are known as "non-degree students." Non-degree students must meet the prerequisite requirements for the course(s) for which they register and are subject to the same academic regulations and standards as degree students. Registration for courses is subject to the availability of those courses, with initial priority being given to degree students. Non-degree students may register for classes through the Registrar's Office. Call (802) 728-1303 for details.

Enrolling in Classes at Other Vermont State Colleges

By agreement of the five Vermont State Colleges (Castleton, Lyndon, Johnson State Colleges, Vermont Tech and the Community College of Vermont), students enrolled at any VSC institution may simultaneously enroll in courses at other VSC institutions and receive full credit for those courses at their "home" college. The agreement eliminates duplication of registration or other enrollment fees, and students receive financial aid based upon their total credit enrollment within the VSC. Course-specific fees of $100 or more are reimbursed by the student to the institution where those fees are incurred. Students seeking to benefit by the dual enrollment must receive written approval from the Academic Dean prior to enrolling at another VSC institution. For more information contact the Registrar's Office at (802) 728 1303.
