In order to review an application, the Office of Admissions requires the following items of all transfer applicants:


  • Application for Admission
  • Full Record of College and Post-Secondary Transcripts
  • Full Record of High School Transcripts
  • One Essay or Personal Statement
  • One Letter of Recommendation

If you have completed fewer than 24 college credits, you must submit SAT or ACT Scores. Or in place of test scores, you may submit an Insight Portfolio. Until an applicant has submitted each of these requirements, the application will be listed as "incomplete."

Applicants are encouraged to submit supplemental application materials. Supplemental materials provide you the opportunity to showcase special talents, abilities, passions, and awards that may not be reflected in your personal statement or recommendation. Use supplemental materials as an opportunity to demonstrate what you will contribute to the campus community at Green Mountain College.

Supplemental materials may include:

  • Additional Letters of Recommendation
  • Additional Essays
  • Creative Arts Portfolio
  • Class work Portfolio
At any time, you may contact the Office of Admissions to check on the status of your application.

Transferring Credit and Graduation Requirements
At Green Mountain College, we will make the transfer process as smooth as possible and accept up to 90 transfer credits. All transfer students should note that you are required to take 30 credits at Green Mountain College in order to receive a degree from the College, even if all other graduation requirements have been met.

To ensure a fair and careful review of your transferable credits, you should supply a complete, official record of all college transcripts, signed by the Registrar well in advance of the enrollment deadline. For additional information on GMC's Transfer Credit policy, please click here.
