Transfer Students

compassReady for a New Direction for Your Education?

Sterling College welcomes applications from transfer students. We are currently reviewing applications for Spring 2015, starting in January.

Whether you choose one of our five established majors or create your own self-designed major, at Sterling College you’ll gain insight into theory, integrate research into your studies, and lean how to use tools like a chainsaw, a compass, and a tractor as part of your daily work and study.

If your values lead you to commit to becoming an environmental steward and you want the rigor and challenge of working with both your hands and your mind, Sterling College could be the right place for you. We encourage you to schedule a visit to campus or sign up for more information.

Financial Aid

We are committed to providing robust financial aid packages for all of our students, including transfer students and students who enter with associate degrees.

  • For Vermont residents: if you apply to Sterling College for Spring, Summer, or Fall 2015, we can match the in-state tuition price of the University of Vermont, after financial aid awards are applied.
  • For non-Vermont residents: if you are transferring to Sterling from a community college, we can match the in-state tuition price of your home state’s flagship public university, after financial aid awards are applied.
  • Participation in the Work Program earns each student additional funds that offset the cost of attendance.
  • While college is a big investment, we offer robust financial aid packages.
