Dual Enrollment Programs
The Vermont Dual Enrollment Program allows high school students to earn college credit while still in high school. Successful high school students have earned anywhere from 3 to 18 college credits—reducing the time it takes to get a college degree, reducing the costs associated with college, and challenging themselves through college-level curriculum. Courses in the Vermont Dual Enrollment Program are offered tuition free, with support from GEAR-UP and the State of Vermont's Next Generation Initiative.

Assessment of Prior Learning
At the Community College of Vermont, learning acquired through work or other non-college experiences may be submitted for college credit through the Assessment of Prior Learning (APL) course. Students describe and document their experiential learning in a portfolio, which is then reviewed for credit by a committee of faculty and professionals. The credit they recommend may be transferred to CCV and many other institutions in and outside of Vermont. Contact CCV's Office of External Programs (802-828-4064) for more information.
External Degree Program
The Johnson State College External Degree Program is designed for adult learners, many of whom are juggling jobs and/or family responsibilities along with their studies. Courses and degree options offer maximum flexibility as well as the challenge and excitement of learning that leads to a bachelor's degree.
