Dual Enrollment Programs
The Vermont Dual Enrollment Program allows high school students to earn college credit while still in high school or the summer after they graduate. 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.
