Dual Enrollment

Across the country, high school students are taking advantage of dual enrollment opportunities. Dual enrollment programs allow a student to take college courses, sometimes concurrently, while still in high school. Dual enrollment programs may be found at the home high school, the regional technical center, and/or the college campus.

Students who take advantage of the dual enrollment program receive a VSC transcript. Credits earned can then be used to further the studentsí education at Vermont Tech or at other participating post-secondary institutions. A college transcript provides evidence of a studentís academic ability and ambitions for furthering his/her education. This may assist students seeking entrance into their chosen college. Acceptance of transfer credits is at the discretion of the receiving post-secondary institution.

While participation in dual enrollment will not reduce financial expenses at Vermont Tech, other benefits of the program include getting a jump start on college courses, taking advantage of a lighter credit load during the first semester, taking additional courses to balance out other occupational desires, or trying out a college course in a non-threatening venue.
