Whether you are transferring from a 4-year college or 2-year community college or are an adult student who took time off from your academic career, we welcome you to apply.
For community college transfers, SVC has articulation agreements with a growing number of associate-degree granting institutions.
TRANSFER CREDIT HOTLINE: 1-802-681-AT SVC or 1-802-681-2878
To formally apply to the College, transfer students must submit the following:
- Completed Online Application;
- Official high school transcript or GED results;
- Official transcripts from all colleges attended;
- Completed Dean's Report form;
- Two letters of recommendation (one must be from a faculty member — no family member or friend);
- Personal essay.
Transfer of Credits: Written transfer assessments are provided to students applying to the College soon after their applications and transcripts are received. Credits earned at other accredited institutions of higher education are granted when a grade of C or better has been earned, and the course content parallels one offered at Southern Vermont College. (No more than 66 credits of 100- and 200-level courses can be transferred into Southern Vermont College toward a bachelor's degree.) Credits may be earned through Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Educational Support (DANTES), International Baccalaureate, Regents College Examinations, or other accredited programs. Southern Vermont College also accepts transfer credits earned through the Course Challenge programs of the Vermont State Colleges. Contact the Registrar for further information. In special cases, appropriate faculty members will determine the number of transferable credits based on course grade, content, and other selective criteria. Additionally, credit may be earned through the College's math proficiency exam.
