The State of Vermont's Dual Enrollment Program enables high school juniors and seniors to take courses at participating colleges with tuition paid for by a state-funded program.
To qualify, students must be State of Vermont residents and be "publically funded" (that is, attending a public high school in Vermont or attending a high school that's not a Vermont public high school, but with tuition paid by their hometown in Vermont).
Students interested in Dual Enrollment must apply for a state-issued voucher for the semester in which they wish to enroll in the college course. There’s information about applying for a voucher at the Vermont Dual Enrollment website. A student may receive up to two vouchers in the junior and senior years.
The voucher covers the cost of tuition for up to a four-credit course. Students are responsible for the cost of textbooks and any course fees or lab fees. Some funding may be available through VSAC to help with these additional costs for students who qualify for lunch subsidies at their schools.
College courses given in fall, spring or summer terms are available through the Dual Enrollment Program, however students are not be eligible for courses in the summer term after their graduation.
In addition to securing a voucher from the state, students must get the approval from the high school (the principal or designee) for the course they propose to take at the college. In order to qualify for this program, the college course must count for the student's high school graduation.
After confirmation from the State of Vermont that the student has been granted a voucher, and after receiving approval from the high school for the course, the student should submit an application form to Saint Michael's College.
In addition to the application form, students should submit an official transcript from their high school. The transcript should be directed to the Registrar's Office at Saint Michael's College.
Class schedules normally are published in mid-March for the fall semester, in mid-October for the spring semester and in early March for the summer session. There’s a link to class schedules here. For course descriptions consult the college catalog.
