Castleton works closely with the Community College of Vermont and encourages CCV graduates to continue their education at Castleton.
President Dave Wolk says, "Castleton faculty have learned that CCV graduates are capable of becoming some of Castleton's most successful students and alumni. They will make the most of a Castleton education and will contribute in and outside the classroom."
Castleton and CCV have agreed that any student who graduates from CCV is guaranteed admission to Castleton. Students do need to apply, and the application fee is waived. A few Castleton programs, such as nursing and music, have further admission review requirements.
Castleton provides important academic and financial aid advising to CCV students who wish to plan a smooth transition to Castleton.
All CCV credits will be accepted and applied to the student’s major as appropriate, then to Castleton’s general education requirements, and finally to the electives that fill out a degree. Getting the balance exactly right can be tricky, and students have the advantage of gaining academic advice while at CCV that will allow you make the most of your time at both colleges.
Castleton and CCV have developed Pathway plans for nearly 20 programs of study so that students who follow the prescribed plan experience a seamless transition to Castleton to earn a bachelor’s degree.
CCV students are considered for all scholarships available to transfer students. Additionally, CCV Associate Degree graduates who transfer to Castleton will automatically receive the Transfer Success Scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded to students entering Castleton on a full-time basis in the fall or spring semester. Awards are renewable for students making satisfactory academic progress towards their degree. Recipients must maintain continuous enrollment at Castleton and a grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.
