Campus Facilities

Campus Facilities Main Campus The main campus is located in Randolph Center and the school has a long history of education, both as a teacher training school and a post-secondary agricultural institution. Today, it is a rural, residential campus specializing in technology education.

With four residence halls, two dining facilities, academic buildings equipped with laboratories for numerous technical majors, and conference facilities, Vermont Tech’s main campus is equipped to offer the full, traditional college experience as well as acting as an anchor for the wider community and a resource for non-traditional students and lifelong learners.

Other Campuses Williston Campus Located at Blair Park in Williston, Vermont Tech’s Williston campus offers a wide array of degree and certificate programs for part-time or full-time students. This campus has been designed to make our top-notch technical education programs available to students throughout northwestern Vermont.

The Williston campus is rapidly expanding with new electrical, physics, anatomy, biology, and chemistry labs and state-of-the-art CAD and computer labs. It currently houses all of the college’s allied health programs including dental hygiene, nursing, and respiratory therapy. Also available are degree programs in electrical engineering, computer engineering, aeronautical engineering, and business management. The campus also maintains a Vermont Interactive Television studio and supports a wide array of degree and non-degree workforce-education programs for area businesses.

Putnam/Bennington Campus The Putnam Memorial School of Practical Nursing was established in 1946 by the Board of Corporators of the Putnam Memorial Hospital. It was the eighth school of practical nursing in the country to be nationally accredited by the National Association for Practical Nurse Education and Service.

The school is on the grounds of the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in downtown Bennington. All clinical facilities are within walking distance, and daycare is located in the school building.

Thompson/Brattleboro Campus Opening in 1907, the Thompson School for Practical Nurses is the oldest continuously operating school for practical nurse education in the United States.

Admissions The admission process includes a review of all transcripts, letters of recommendation, extracurricular experiences, and performance on standardized tests, as applicable. Admission is offered to those candidates whose credentials indicate the greatest promise of success in their academic pursuits.

Applicants who do not meet the normal admission requirements may be admitted with provisional status. Provisional acceptances may include such requirements as summer coursework prior to enrolling or additional coursework while enrolled.

Application Deadlines Vermont Tech’s policy of rolling admissions means that we process applications throughout the year until we determine that we have filled each semester’s class. We reserve the right to close admission once the class is filled. Applicants will be notified promptly of admission status after review of a complete student file. Admission to certain programs is exceptionally competitive and decisions on applicants to these programs are not normally made until the entire applicant pool has been reviewed. Applications are reviewed beginning February 1 for Practical Nursing (PN) and Veterinary Technology applicants; beginning March 1 for Dental Hygiene applicants; February 15 for Respiratory Therapy; and March 15 for Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) applicants. Please call the Office of Admissions to confirm these deadlines.

Admission Deposit Accepted students must remit a tuition deposit of $200 on or before May 1 for the fall semester or December 15 for the spring semester. After these dates, deposits will be accepted on a spaceavailable basis. The deposit is credited toward the first semester’s bill.

Three-Year Options Vermont Tech has developed three-year options (3YOs) in selected associate’s degree programs for applicants who need to complete math, science, or English prerequisites. The 3YO allows students to become competent and proficient in these important areas while easing the academic load during the first few semesters. Students enjoy full freshman status in their chosen majors from the first day of classes and experience the curriculum in the same sequence as their peers.

A student may choose the 3YO upon applying or the college may place students in a threeyear curriculum based on the Vermont Tech placement test results.

If a prospective student lacks any of the requirements for admission to a qualifying associate’s degree program, he or she should consider the 3YO.

Dual Enrollment Across the country, high school students are taking advantage of dual enrollment opportunities.

Dual enrollment programs allow a student to take college courses, sometimes concurrently, while still in high school. Dual enrollment programs may be found at the home high school, the regional technical center, and/or the college campus.

Students who take advantage of the dual enrollment program receive a VSC transcript.

Credits earned can then be used to further the students’ education at Vermont Tech or at other participating post-secondary institutions. A college transcript provides evidence of a student’s academic ability and ambitions for furthering his/her education. This may assist students seeking entrance into their chosen college. Acceptance of transfer credits is at the discretion of the receiving post-secondary institution.

While participation in dual enrollment will not reduce financial expenses at Vermont Tech, other benefits of the program include getting a “jump start” on college courses, taking advantage of a lighter credit load during the first semester, taking additional courses to balance out other occupational desires, and/or trying out a college course in a non-threatening venue.

Currently, the VSC receives support from GEAR-UP and the State of Vermont’s Next Generation Initiative to sponsor dual enrollment programs around the state. Each Vermont high school student is allowed two vouchers to pay for college level courses. The voucher covers the entire tuition, making the college course tuition free. Students may use their vouchers at any participating college.

More information about the VSC Dual Enrollment program and free tuition for Vermont high school students is available at www.vsc.edu and a list of participating Vermont Regional Technical Centers is available at www.fastforward.vsc.edu International Students

If you are applying as an international student, please submit the following:

• Completed application (available online at www.vtc.edu) • $37 application fee (payable to Vermont Technical College)

• Official secondary school transcript. The transcript must arrive directly from the school on official letterhead in a sealed envelope. We also request that it be translated into English

• Official college/university transcript (if applicable) with course by course evaluation by Education Consultants and Evaluators International (www.eceinternational.com), World Education Services (www.wes.org), or equivalent international transcript evaluator

• Official Testing of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores (if English is a second language). The minimum score required on the TOEFL test is 500 for the paper test and 173 for the computer based test

• Official financial statement indicating your ability to pay one full year of tuition, room, and board. Proof must be provided on official blank letterhead and is needed before an I-20 can be issued Admissions International students are encouraged to apply between the months of November and April due to the lengthy Visa process. Upon acceptance, international students are required to submit a $500 deposit before issuing your I-20. The $500 will be credited to the fall semester bill English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) According to language acquisition experts, non-native speakers of English need 5–7 years of consistent exposure to oral and written academic language to achieve proficiency in college

level work. With this fact in mind, the following conditions and recommendations apply:

• Vermont Tech’s writing placement test determines the student’s appropriate English course. If the student’s English skills are below the minimum level, he or she will be required to take ESL-1041. The ESOL student must achieve at least a “B” and demonstrate improved skills in two post-course placement tests in order to advance into ENG-1042.

• ESOL students who place in higher level English courses will benefit from structured time at the Writing and Communication Centers. Tutors work with students to improve reading and writing skills. In addition, ESOL software in vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation are available for study and practice.

• Students who do not place into ENG-1061 or its equivalent may require extra terms to complete their degree program.
