College Credits in High School

Dual Enrollment: Vermont high school students in their junior and senior year can take a total of two college courses at any of the 17 Vermont colleges or universities tuition-free under the guidelines of Vermont’s dual enrollment program. The dual enrollment program currently pays for both courses. Students must get approval for their participation in Dual Enrollment from the principal or school guidance counselor.

Early College: A second option for earning college credit in high school allows students to complete their senior year of high school and their freshman year of college simultaneously - tuition-free. Programs are available at CCV, Castleton, Johnson, Lyndon State, and Burlington College. Early College also includes the Vermont Academy of Science and Technology at VTC.
