Introduction to College Studies (ICS)

As a Vermont high school sophomore, junior or senior, you can take a free 13-week course that helps you get ready for college.

Offered at all 12 CCV statewide locations, ICS helps high school sophomores, juniors and seniors:

  • Set goals and problem-solve
  • Manage time and stress
  • Improve communication skills
  • Take better notes and reduce test anxiety
  • Plan finances for college
  • Explore life’s options

More cool things about ICS are that it’s a risk-free pass/fail class, and many high schools award high school credit to students who successfully complete the course. ICS also gives you study skills that you can use right away in your high school classes.
