PSC announces transfer agreement with Green Mountain College
Students in good standing at Green Mountain who apply by Sept. 1, 2019, will be guaranteed admission to Paul Smith’s and have a guaranteed tuition rate
Paul Smith’s College has finalized a transfer agreement with Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vt., which announced Wednesday, Jan. 23, that it will discontinue operations at the end of the spring 2019 semester.
Both colleges are collaborating to create seamless transfer pathways to foster student success. Included in this is a tuition guarantee for students who apply by Sept. 1 for the 2019-20 academic year. Financial aid packages for these students will ensure that net tuition is equal to or less than the tuition billed by Green Mountain College in 2018-19.
Also, credits earned by students at Green Mountain are easily transferable to Paul Smith’s for students in good standing. An application fee for prospective transfer students will not be charged.
“Paul Smith’s College has a long history of providing education opportunity to students with a strong emphasis on environmental consciousness and hands-on teaching,” said Nicholas Hunt-Bull, provost of Paul Smith’s College. “In this we share a great deal with Green Mountain College, along with many similar programs and many faculty and staff friendships. The Paul Smith’s community is deeply saddened by the need for Green Mountain to close, and hopes to be able to help as much as possible at this difficult time.”
Students can choose from more than a dozen academic programs to complete their bachelor’s degree requirements on time. Those which might be of particular interest to students currently enrolled at Green Mountain include biology; environmental studies; natural resource conservation and management; hotel, resort and tourism management; sustainable communities and working landscapes; psychology; recreation, adventure education and leisure management; and integrative studies.
Paul Smith’s College admissions counselors, faculty and financial aid experts are here to help. Information sessions will be offered Saturday, Jan. 26, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for Green Mountain students who are welcome to call or stop by without an appointment. Please contact Jodi Johnson-Rossi at email@example.com or (518) 327-6072 for knowledgeable assistance.
