Dual Enrollment


With the 2013 passage of the Flexible Pathways bill (S.130/Act77), Vermont’s Dual Enrollment program has expanded to include up to two college courses for eligible VT high school students. The Agency of Education (AOE) has oversight of the dual enrollment program and will work with partner institutions of higher education to manage the delivery to students. Dual enrollment courses provided for in this legislation can be offered on a college campus and on site at a participating high school.

Highlights of Act 77 include:

  • High school juniors and seniors who are residents of Vermont, and their school is publicly funded including a Vermont career technical center are eligible for a total of two Dual Enrollment courses
  • Students who attend an independent high school and are publicly funded by their hometowns
  • State of Vermont Home Study student
  • Student who is assigned to a public school through the High School Completion Program
  • Students must get approval for their participation in a dual enrollment course from their high school principal or designee
  • Effective by November 30, 2015 any student wanting to participate in a dual enrollment course must have it included in their Personalized Learning Plan (PLP)
