Undergraduate Admission for Campus-Based Students
On July 1, 2018, Johnson State College will unify with Lyndon State College to become Northern Vermont University, a two-campus institution of higher learning.
If you are applying for full-time undergraduate admission for Fall 2018, you should apply via the Common Application.
All other applicants (including first-year undergraduates applying for Spring 2018 admission, transfer students, graduate students, online, and External Degree Program) seeking admission before the fall 2018 semester should scroll down and click on the links and follow the application instructions.
Northern Vermont University-Johnson accepts applications on a rolling basis. This means that we review applications and admit qualified applicants throughout the year. Admitted applicants can begin in the fall, spring, or summer.
However, the sooner you get your application in, the better! Housing, financial aid awards, and first-semester class selection are all first-come, first-served, so the sooner you apply, the more options you’ll have if accepted.
