Yestermorrow Design/Build School
The Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Warren, Vermont offers courses that may be eligible for college credit, and may satisfy some requirements of the Green Building and Community Design minor. These courses are generally between one and three credits. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain pre-approval of Yestermorrow courses for which they seek college credit by working with the UVM Office of Transfer Affairs and Yestermorrow to acquire and submit relevant course materials (e.g. Yestermorrow instructor evaluations/CVs, Yestermorrow course syllabi, examples of work done in the course).
This process can be lengthy so it is advisable to begin it as early as possible. Once UVM has granted pre-approval for credit, the student should meet with one of the CDAE advisors to discuss the course's fit within the Green Building and Community Design minor.
