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 college courses while still enrolled in high school. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (802)238-9453 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.
- Students must get approval for a dual enrollment course from their high school principal to ensure they will receive high school credit
- 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
- Each student will receive on-going support throughout the semester
Participating Vermont Colleges and Universities
