Other Ways to Earn Credit
You can apply credits toward a CCV degree in several ways besides successful completion of classes.
Assessment of Prior Learning
Learning acquired through work or other non-college experiences may be submitted for college credit through the Assessment of Prior Learning (APL) course. Students describe and document their experiential learning in a portfolio, which is then reviewed for credit by a committee of faculty and professionals. The credit they recommend may be transferred to CCV and many other institutions in and outside of Vermont. Contact the Office of External Programs (802-828-4064) for more information.
Credit by Examination
Vermont State College students are eligible to take CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) examinations through CCV's Office of External Programs in Montpelier. Tests are available in 40 subjects (3-6 credits each). This credit can be transferred to CCV and to 1,300 other colleges and universities.
To learn more about CLEP visit the CLEP website .
To register for a CLEP exam, call CCV's OEP office at (802-828-4064).
You can request a CCV course challenge if you believe your prior experiential learning duplicates that of a specific course required for your degree program. You should contact an academic advisor for more information and to apply for a course challenge.
Credit for Evaluated Non-College Learning
Some types of military or organized in-service training may have been evaluated for college credit. Military course transcripts should be sent to the CCV Registrar, PO Box 489, Montpelier VT 05601, for evaluation of transfer credits.
Transcripts from organizational training evaluated through the Office of External Programsí (OEP) Education and Training Evaluation Service (E.T.E.S.) are administered by OEP. Please call 802-828-4064 for information and transcript request forms.
CCV accepts transfer credit for course work completed at other accredited colleges or universities. Application of these credits to particular CCV degree or concentration requirements is determined during degree planning. Information about the transfer process and forms necessary are available at all CCV academic centers and from the registrar's office in Montpelier. To transfer college credit from other institutions, have transcripts sent to Transcript Clerk, CCV, PO Box 489, Montpelier VT 05601.
