Special Transfer Agreements

CCV has special transfer agreements (also known as articulation agreements) with many other colleges that will help you in the process of transferring credits.

CCV currently offers students articulation agreements with the following colleges:

Burlington College

Burlington College is a small, private, nontraditional liberal arts institution located in Burlington, Vermont, that honors each student as an individual. The College offers courses, majors, and degree programs suited to those individual characteristics. These include Associate, Bachelor of Arts, and Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees, as well as an Individualized Master’s degree program. Burlington College certificate programs include Paralegal Studies, Cinema Studies, Woodworking and Fine Furniture Making, Cuban Studies, Documentary Film-making, Event Planning, Screenwriting, and Film Production. Burlington College offers both campus-based and distance learning programs. Admission into programs is based on student eligibility.

Through a special transfer agreement, Burlington College will accept all CCV courses awarded a grade of “C” or better. Upper level admission requires strong writing and critical thinking skills. CCV associate degree graduates with a minimum GPA of 2.5 who transfer, matriculate, and enroll in at least 6 credits in Burlington College’s campus–based programs are eligible for 20% reduction in tuition at Burlington College as long as they maintain strong academic standing.

For more information, call the admissions office at 800-862-9616 , email admissions@burlington.edu or visit www.burlington.edu.

Castleton State College

Why Castleton?

CCV students transfer to Castleton State College because of the quality education they will receive through Castleton’s strong core foundation in the liberal arts, coupled with over 30 programs, including science or professional degree options. Transfer students appreciate the small class sizes and the learning relationships they develop with their professors, who are experts in their fields and who care about student success.

Through a transfer agreement between Castleton and CCV, any student who graduates from CCV is guaranteed admission to Castleton. Students do need to apply, but there is no application fee. A few Castleton programs, such as nursing and music, have more restrictive admissions requirements.

All CCV credits will be accepted and applied to the student’s major as appropriate, then to Castleton’s general education requirements, and finally to the electives that fill out a degree. Getting the balance exactly right can be tricky, but if you are thinking of Castleton, you have the advantage of gaining academic advice while you are at CCV that will allow you to make the most of your time at both colleges.

Castleton works closely with CCV and encourages CCV graduates to continue at Castleton. CSC faculty have learned that CCV graduates are capable of becoming some of Castleton’s most successful students and alumni. They will make the most of a Castleton education and will contribute in and outside the classroom.

Transfer Pathways

Castleton and CCV have developed pathway plans for popular majors so that students who follow the prescribed plan will not have to take more than 64 credits to earn a bachelor degree.

As of fall, 2002, credits taken anywhere in the Vermont State Colleges system will appear automatically on any VSC school transcript and will no longer be treated as transfer credits within the VSC. This means students will no longer have to request CCV transcripts be sent to other VSC colleges. It also means that all grades for CCV courses (including “W”, “D” and “F”) will move with a student from CCV to another VSC college. Also, beginning with fall ’02 semester, grades earned at CCV will also automatically factor into a student’s grade point average after transfer into another VSC degree program.
