North isn't just where we are. It's who we are.
We proud to be Northern Vermont University and proud of our history. But nothing makes us prouder than you — our Johnson and Lyndon alumni, who have used the skills, relationships, wisdom, and direction gained at our campuses to make a difference in our communities and the world.
Our name has changed, but Northern Vermont University is built on a foundation of two strong campuses that have made a difference in the lives of the students and communities we serve. And we will continue to honor and celebrate that history. We look forward to our alumni returning to campus for annual celebrations like Alumni Weekend. We rely upon our alumni to work with our current students as mentors and internship providers. And whether you graduated from Lyndon, Johnson, or are a future graduate of NVU, we will continue to value your perspective on the work we do and ways to innovate and change so that we can continue to prepare our students for a changing world.
Transcripts and Diplomas
Lyndon State and Johnson State remain separate colleges until July 1, 2018. We will continue to issue transcripts and diplomas under the separate colleges’ names until that date.
Students who graduate after July 1, 2018 will receive a Northern Vermont University diploma. We are currently developing policies for alumni and for students who started their program at either Johnson or Lyndon but graduate after the name change. Information will be posted here when available.
After July 1, 2018, all students will receive transcripts from Northern Vermont University. All coursework completed at Lyndon State or Johnson State will be indicated by a key on the transcript.
Alumni who graduated from Johnson State College or Lyndon State College can now order commemorative Northern Vermont University diplomas free of charge. These diplomas will bear the new school name and the signatures of the current university president and Board of Trustees chair. Orders will be taken until December 1, 2018 and will be processed and shipped in January 2019. Order your commemorative diploma here.
