Getting Started at CCV

With 12 locations across Vermont, there’s a CCV academic center close to you. We offer flexible scheduling, degrees and certificates for any career path, and support services to help you succeed. Getting started at CCV is easy – just follow these four simple steps.

1. Apply to CCV & Complete the FAFSA

Applying to CCV is fast, easy, and free! Take 10 minutes to fill out the application. Next, complete the FAFSA and VSAC application to find out how much financial aid you’re eligible for.

Current Vermont State Colleges students (Castleton, Northern Vermont University, and Vermont Tech) who want to take CCV classes without leaving their current college do NOT need to apply.

2. Assess Your Skills

Most applicants complete CCV’s free skills assessments. These assessments help you choose the best classes for you. Results do not influence your admission to CCV.

CCV is currently waiving Accuplacer scores for summer and fall 2020 applicants who have completed high school. Current high school students will need to submit a high school transcript for review before a waiver can be granted.

3. Meet Your Advisor & Register for Classes

Schedule an appointment to speak with an academic advisor and we’ll answer your questions, review steps for enrolling in classes, and talk about how CCV can help you reach your goals. Contact your preferred CCV center to schedule an appointment.

4. Consider Payment Options

CCV has dedicated financial aid counselors in each center. Through grants, loans, and scholarships, our team is here to help you cover the entire cost of attending CCV. Other payment options are available, including a monthly payment plan.
