Our small classes, tight-knit community, supportive faculty and staff, outstanding academic opportunities, scenic campus and focus on career exploration and development starting your first year are just some of the things that make Johnson State an attractive option for transfer students. We work hard to make sure the process of transferring to JSC simple, smooth and hassle-free.
Transfer Student Options
Johnson State College offers two options for transfer students:
Campus-based Option: This is the most popular choice of students who are within a few years of high school graduation and enrolling full time. As a campus-based transfer student, you’ll take classes on the JSC campus in Johnson, Vermont. Housing options include living in one of the residence halls on campus or, if you meet eligibility requirements, the College Apartments or in off-campus housing in the local community.
External Degree Program (EDP) Option: EDP is our statewide, degree-completion program for students with 60 or more college credits seeking to complete a bachelor’s degree. Six majors are available statewide — by taking online courses, attending weekend classes in one of four Vermont communities, or taking a combination of online and weekend classes — or you can earn any B.A., B.S. or B.F.A. degree available at JSC if you’re able to attend class on campus in Johnson.
