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.

  • No online courses are available to high school, dual-enrolled students.

Champlain College offers non‐degree admission to students who wish to take undergraduate courses without pursuing an undergraduate degree-both on our Burlington campus and online, for qualifying adults.  

At our Burlington campus, 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.
