Each year, Continuing Education (CE) helps thousands of non-traditional students continue their education at the University of Vermont. We offer courses and programs to help students explore their options, whether they are planning a career change, looking for professional development or preparing for an advanced degree.
For the second year in a row, U.S. News & World Report ranked UVM one of the nation's Top Up-and-Coming Schools, institutions that "are worth watching because they are making promising and innovative changes," according to the magazine.
Kiplinger's Personal Finance placed UVM among the top 100 public colleges and universities for its combination of quality and cost, or value.
Learn from accomplished faculty with experience in school settings, technology integration, educational research and state government. The Educational Technology Online Sequence program instructors all hold a doctorate or Ph.D. with years of experience in education, technology, and related fields.
University of Vermont uses the Blackboard™ course management platform, allowing you to download course materials, access library resources, submit assignments, interact with students and professors and contribute to ongoing class discussions.
UVM online courses are asynchronous; you can log into your classroom environment and access your materials 24-hours a day, seven days a week. You are not required to participate in class at any specific time of day, though you must meet assignment and project deadlines as assigned by the course instructor, as well as take tests and exams at designated times.
Financial aid is available to Continuing Education students participating in a sequence program with the intent to pursue a UVM graduate degree. A student must be enrolled in at least 6 credits per semester to be eligible to receive aid. Students who have previously received financial aid for non-degree coursework are ineligible. Applicants are encouraged to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The school code is 003696.
