The Process Starts at CCV

At this time, students will provide transcripts of all previous academic work. This allows the CCV advisor to review the record and assess UVM entrance requirements and CCV course placement.

Admissions Process at UVM

CCV Articulation candidates are encouraged to meet with a transfer counselor in the UVM Admissions Office to ensure course transferability. Candidates are asked to submit a completed Application for Admission and all financial aid forms by the stated UVM deadlines.

CCV students who have signed the Articulation Agreement do not pay UVM's application fee. Articulation candidates should include a brief statement in the UVM Application for Admission indicating they are applying under this option.

Candidates for UVM admission must submit official copies of all college course work attempted for credit, including the Community College of Vermont transcript. An official high school transcript is required only for candidates who must prove completion of all UVM entrance requirements prior to CCV entry.

UVM Admissions will review articulation student applications for the minimum GPA and entrance requirements. Offers of admission will be sent to those meeting the established criteria. To become a matriculated student at UVM, CCV articulation students must pay an acceptance fee by a date stipulated in the admission letter.

Candidates whose G.P.A.'s fall below the minimum will be reviewed by UVM on a case-by-case basis. Those denied acceptance are encouraged to meet with a transfer counselor at UVM to review future options.
