  • Only degree-seeking, undergraduate students, attending as at least three-quarters or full-time students are eligible.
  • Students must be in good academic standing as determined by their home institution.
  • Students must meet any pre-requirements. Questions about pre-requirements are referred to the dean, department chair or program director.
  • A student's faculty advisor is given authority to approve or deny the course choice prior to registration.
  • Limited to one course per student, per term, on a space available basis.
  • Student receives a true grade for their coursework, not just a "T" for transfer credit.
  • Available space in classes will be determined at a pre-set deadline by each college.
  • Only campus-based courses during the Fall or Spring semesters are eligible. No online or summer courses.
  • No payment is exchanged between institutions.

Administered by the Vermont State Colleges (VSC), Vermont's statewide Dual Enrollment Program allows high school students to earn college credit while still in high school or during the summer after they graduate. Eligible students may take one college course tuition-free at designated Vermont colleges, allowing them to experience college-level academics.

For more information, visit the State of Vermont Agency of Education website. High school students who are interested in taking a course at Champlain College through Vermont's Dual Enrollment Program should contact their guidance counselor or contact us directly at registrar@champlain.edu.

Champlain College offers non‐degree admission to students who wish to take undergraduate courses without pursuing an undergraduate degree. The four main populations of these students include:

  • A student from another college or university who wants to take a course but will graduate from another institution. It is the responsibility of the student to have the course(s) reviewed by the home institution for transfer.   
  • A college graduate needing additional credits to qualify for admission to a graduate or professional school.
  • A high school student who plans to take a college‐level course during high school.
  • A person who is taking a class for personal enrichment but not to obtain a degree. Generally, these students will audit a course as they are not seeking credit.

Permission to attend Champlain College as a non‐degree student does not guarantee admission to Champlain College as a degree-seeking student. Non‐degree students are limited to 18 credit hours for undergraduate level courses.

Please view the Non-Degree Student Policy and Checklist for additional information.

To register as an undergraduate non-degree student at Champlain College, you must complete the following Non-Degree Student Registration Form. All non-degree students are registered on a space available basis one week prior to the start of the term or semester. Financial aid is not available for non-degree students.
