BHS students have the opportunity to take two college-level courses while enrolled at BHS for free.
Want to get a head start on college while still enrolled high school? Not able to fit a course into your BHS schedule? Then Dual Enrollment is the perfect opportunity for you!
Vermont’s Dual Enrollment Program allows high school students to take two college courses prior to their high school graduation. Participating students earn college credits, reducing the time it takes to get a college degree, potentially reducing the cost associated with college, while challenging themselves through college level curriculum.
Students are encouraged to contact Dhyana Bradley via email email@example.com to set up an appointment.
- Every junior and senior at Burlington High School is eligible for two free college courses prior to graduation.
How It Works
- Explore course options with Ms. Dhyana Bradley
- Apply for a Dual Enrollment voucher dualenrollment.vermont.gov/vtde
- The voucher covers the cost of tuition for up to a 4-credit course at any of the participating colleges. The voucher does not cover the costs of materials and textbooks. Some funding is available through VSAC to help cover these additional costs for students who are eligible for free and reduced price lunch.
- Vouchers are awarded on a semester-by-semester basis, and unused vouchers expire every semester.
- Complete College Registration paperwork (Ms. Bradley will walk each student through this process because it is different at each participating college).
- Some schools may require a placement test.
Participating Vermont Colleges and Universities

Introduction to College and Career
Great option for Sophomores and Juniors
CCV offers a free, non-credit Introduction to College & Careers (ICC) course for high school students each semester. ICC prepares you for college by helping you set goals, problem-solve, manage time and stress, improve communication skills, take better notes, reduce test anxiety, and plan financially. To enroll in this class as a new CCV student, apply online and select a specific ICC course section. The skills assessment is not required, as it will be completed during the class.
Students should meet with Dhyana Bradley (firstname.lastname@example.org) for support with the registration process.
Applications due by May 1st of junior year.
