Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration
Master of Education (MEd)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
The Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration program is designed to prepare professionals to apply student development, organizational, foundational, multicultural and administrative principles to work with students. Working closely with faculty and in-place practitioners, graduate students in the program are challenged to experience an unparalleled learning experience. Graduates from the Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration program pursue careers as professionals in colleges and universities, as well as in fields related to higher education throughout the country. Many professionals in this field serve as policy makers, advisors, student service providers, researchers, programmers, consultants, and administrators. Common to each functional area in student affairs and higher education is the goal to design environments conducive to students' growth and development. The HESA graduate program enrolls approximately 15-18 students per year in the full-time two-year program. The small cohort size facilitates strong and enduring relationships among students and faculty. A wide spectrum of undergraduate majors, geographic locations, previous experiences, and cultural backgrounds are represented in the class cohorts. These diverse perspectives enrich the overall educational environment and expand social awareness. Part-time enrollment is also an option and students work with a faculty advisor to plan course sequencing. An array of 60 practicum internships, 30 graduate assistantship placements, and paid and volunteer professional practice opportunities help students integrate their conceptual knowledge with student affairs and higher education practice. Assistantships are housed in College of Education and Social Services, Student Services Offices, Office of Student Life, Orientation, Leadership and Civic Engagement, and Residential Life (these offerings change from year to year). Assistantships cover tuition for twenty credits of study each year and a bimonthly stipend. The academic program admissions process (December 1) and the assistantship application process (December 1 deadline) are separate from each other. Selected candidates are invited to interview for admission and for assistantships at times held concurrently in the spring of each year. Practica experiences (three selections during the course of the degree) are available within university and local college offices.

As a candidate of this track, you will be considered individually as a transfer student and must meet the University’s B.S. requirements before graduation. For this reason, the time and number of credits required for program completion may vary.

Nursing (RN)
Associate of Science (AS)
Vermont Technical College in Randolph, VT
Vermont Tech offers a career ladder progression approach for students to enter and advance in a nursing career. The career ladder approach is provided in a 1+1+2 model which allows for the completion of the Practical Nursing (PN) certificate, followed by the completion of the Associate of Science in Nursing (ADN) leading to eligibility for RN licensure, and culminating with the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). Qualified students may be accepted into Vermont Tech’s Nursing program at any point (pre-PN, ADN, or BSN) and may progress through the bachelor’s degree or may choose to stop after receiving the PN or ADN credentials. If so, students may re-enter the program at a later time. Vermont Tech also offers an LPN and an RN re-entry program. These programs are provided for LPNs and RNs whose licenses have lapsed and would like to have them reinstated. The LPN and RN re-entry programs update the nurse’s credentials, allowing them eligibility to return to a nursing position upon completion of the program. For further information about these programs, contact the Nursing department. Nursing is a discipline and a profession, a science and an art grounded in caring that provides holistic care with respect and dignity while promoting the health of society. At Vermont Tech, collaboration among faculty and students encourages a spirit of inquiry, personal growth, and service. Nursing students have the opportunity to progress through a four-year, hands-on curriculum based on a career ladder model. Those students who choose to continue in the second-year Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) program participate in practicums in a variety of settings under the supervision of nursing instructors. Graduates’ NCLEX pass rates for licensure are higher than the national average. Students in our nursing programs also have high completion rates. The PN and ADN programs are offered at four locations across the state with campuses in Bennington, Brattleboro, Randolph Center, and Williston and at distance education sites in Lyndonville, Middlebury, Newport, St. Albans, Springfield, and White River Junction. The BSN program is offered exclusively online. We're a recognized leader in distance learning and health care simulation, which allows nursing students who practice in small rural communities across the state to experience lifelike medical situations. Our instructional curriculum is offered at distance education sites throughout the state, while the clinical experience takes place at local agencies. We also also provides the latest in simulation technology at its six simulation labs. While Vermont Tech guarantees direct progression from the PN to the ADN program for qualified students, it cannot guarantee direct progression at the same site at which the PN certificate was obtained. Because of the competitive demand for ADN slots and the limitations of clinical ADN placements in some areas of the state, some students may have to continue their nursing studies at a site other than their first choice or the site at which their PN certificate was obtained. A student progressing directly from the PN to the ADN level must request their first, second, and third site preferences for ADN education on their Nursing Direct Progress form. Vermont Tech assigns first priority to students requesting to remain at their PN site in order of GPA. Once ADN slots are filled for any site, Vermont Tech tries to place students at their next highest stated preferences if seats are available. A student whose first preference is to attend an ADN site other than their PN site will be considered for the preferred site only after qualified PN students at that site have been offered an ADN seat. A student who wishes to take off a semester or more after completing the PN or ADN program may apply for re-admittance to the Nursing program through the regular admissions process, but are not guaranteed admittance. PN and ADN students must receive a grade of C+ or better in all NUR courses and a C or better in BIO and PSY courses in order to progress in the program. If a student in the last semester of the program does not achieve these grades, they are not allowed to graduate. Grades lower than the required 75 or 77 are reflected on the transcript with the corresponding letter grade, so credits may be awarded for any grade above an F, but the student will not progress or graduate from the Nursing program. The ADN program articulates with the PN program and requires two further semesters of full-time study. The twelve clinical credits earned in the PN program do not transfer to the ADN program. ADN graduates are awarded an Associate of Science in Nursing and may apply to take the NCLEX for Registered Nurses. The Vermont State Board of Nursing application requires information regarding past history of substance abuse, prior felony convictions, and failure to pay child support or taxes for all graduates. Other states may ask similar questions. It is the Board’s responsibility to determine eligibility to sit for the licensure examination and to issue the license to practice. For more information, please refer to http://vtprofessionals.org/opr1/nurses To progress directly from the ADN to the BSN level, a student must: Declare their intent to progress on a Change of Program form no later than March 31 of the year in which they wish to progress Maintain a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA through the ADN program Obtain licensure as a Registered Nurse during the summer after completing the ADN degree ADN graduates are prepared to work in a healthcare setting under the supervision of more experienced practitioners. A student with an Associate of Science in Nursing will be able to: Evaluate the plan of care to assist clients with complex healthcare needs to maintain, achieve, or regain their optimal level of self-care Select appropriate scientific, behavioral, and cultural principles for the care of clients with complex needs in diverse settings Evaluate interpersonal skills in professional practice Incorporate behaviors consistent with legal and ethical standards of professional practice Assume the role of manager of care within the interdisciplinary team Competently deliver nursing care which maximizes the self-care potential of individuals with complex health needs in diverse settings Evaluate a comprehensive teaching plan to meet the physical and emotional needs of individuals and groups with common and complex healthcare needs Demonstrate accountability for growth as individuals, as members of society, and as professional nurses The associate degree program includes 420 hours of theory and 315 hours of clinical/lab.

Computer Science
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT
Computer Science is a rich and dynamic discipline that seeks to understand and use effectively the great potential of computing. The Department of Computer Science offers a wide variety of courses that integrate computer science into the liberal arts curriculum. The major can be completed through two tracks. The traditional track provides students with a solid background in algorithmic reasoning, problem solving, design and organization of modern computers and programming languages, and the ability to apply computational thinking to different applications and problem domains. The interdisciplinary track first provides a solid background in computer science including algorithms and data structures, and then allows students to apply this knowledge to specific problem domains in related disciplines and to forge interdisciplinary connection Computers and algorithmic problem solving have revolutionized the 20th and 21st centuries. Fields ranging from physics, chemistry, and biology to psychology, economics, and the arts not only increasingly utilize computational devices, but are also being transformed by computational thinking and algorithmic problem solving. Computer science has been, and will continue to be, behind many of these advances. It is a rich and dynamic discipline that incorporates elements of mathematics, natural science, engineering, and philosophy, while simultaneously contributing back to all of these fields. Pursuing a major or minor in computer science will equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in these exciting advances, and to be not only an observer, but a player in this digital age.
