Colby-Sawyer College and Southern Vermont College (SVC) have reached an agreement that will allow qualified students in SVC’s online RN to BS nursing program to complete their bachelor’s degree as students in Colby-Sawyer’s online RN to BS nursing program. Southern Vermont announced last month that it will close at the end of this academic year.

“The quality and rigor of the RN to BS nursing programs at our institutions enabled this partnership that will allow SVC students to continue their educations with minimal disruption in light of the unfortunate announcement of Southern Vermont College’s closure,” said Vice President for Admissions and Financial Aid Anna Miner. “We welcome SVC students to the Colby-Sawyer community.”

Colby-Sawyer will waive the 90-credit limit on transfer credit in order to help SVC students stay on schedule. It will also honor all SVC undergraduate degree core courses that meet Colby-Sawyer’s academic standards and as many additional courses as possible.

SVC students wishing to complete their education at Colby-Sawyer will inform SVC and work with administrators there to begin the process of enrolling at Colby-Sawyer.
