VSC Graduation Standards

The Vermont State Colleges Board of Trustees has instituted graduation standards for all Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree candidates. The object of these standards is to provide assurance that VSC graduates have certain essential skills for success in the workplace and in life in general.

The Graduation Standards Handbook describes all four of the standards: writing, oral communication, quantitative reasoning and Information Literacy, and the ways that students can meet the standards. The library is most invested in the Information Literacy standard and does its part, through instruction and advocacy, to help students succeed in meeting it.
