Encourage High School Students to Enroll in Precollege at UVM

Do you know a high school student who wants to get a head start on college? Precollege programs at the University of Vermont offer high school students the opportunity to earn transferable college credit and experience the challenge of college-level academics.

High school students are invited to choose from more than 400 courses, ranging from Anthropology to Plant and Soil Science to World Literature. In addition, junior and senior high school students may enroll in a four-week, on-campus Summer Academy program focusing on healthcare and engineering or travel abroad to study in Costa Rica.

Students who participate in a UVM precollege program will also save money on college costs through Dual Enrollment, a statewide program for high school students with Vermont residency to access up to two college courses for free. Please share this exciting opportunity with students you know. UVM is now accepting 2016 precollege applications. For more information, visit
