Vermont is one of nine states with less than 30 colleges and career schools. In 2005, Vermont had only seven public post-secondary schools, and had the third lowest student enrollment in the country at approximately 40,000 students. Interestingly enough, a higher percentage of students attending post-secondary schools in Vermont stay in dorms than in any other state - more than fifty percent.
In addition, a higher percentage of Vermont adult education institutions, including colleges, require SATs than in any other state - almost 45% do so. For profit schools are comparatively rare in Vermont. Less than 15% of their colleges and career schools are for-profit, and Vermont is one of eight states with less than 2% of its student population attending for-profit schools.
Vermont has very few large- or even medium-sized colleges. Only the University of Vermont, based in Burlington, has more than 10,000 students. Three other colleges have more than 2,000 students. These are the Community College of Vermont, Champlain College, and Norwich University. The latter two schools are for-profit institutions. Another thing that is a bit unusual is that there are no personal care schools in Vermont.
