The Community College of Vermont (CCV) was founded in 1970 and provides affordable education to Vermont residents. It is different from other community colleges because it does not have a central campus. Instead, the school operates numerous academic centers around the state, as well as offers courses and programs online. The school also caters to students of all ages, from high school students to seniors. Students at CCV can choose from hundreds of courses and numerous associate degree and certificate programs.
At the Community College of Vermont, students can complete their degrees at one of the 12 academic centers or online, depending on the program. Associate degree programs in business, accounting, graphic design, human services, environmental science, and many more are available. Certificate programs in allied health preparation, childcare, essential workplace skills, health information specialist, substance abuse services, and website design are also available. Most of the school’s programs are offered completely online, though students should confirm their program’s online status before enrolling.
The Community College of Vermont is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. It has been accredited since 1975.
The Community College of Vermont is an open enrollment institution. Students can apply at almost any time to enter the semester of their choice by submitting an application and official transcripts from any institutions previously attended or their high school transcripts. Applicants also must take any skills assessment tests required, though some students may be able to substitute their skills assessment exams with SAT or ACT test scores. Applicants must also meet with an admissions advisor to design a degree plan.
