How can I access my transcripts? How will future employers confirm that I received a degree from GMC?
Registrar’s Office personnel can print a transcript for all eligible students or graduates through June 30th or transcripts can be obtained via the following link: https://www.parchment.com/u/registration/33082/account. After June 30th, transcripts will be available through Prescott College.
Will my Green Mountain College degree still have value?
Yes, your degree from Green Mountain College still has value. It will be recognized by employers and other colleges/universities as a valid degree with full accreditation.
What will happen to the Green Mountain College campus after it closes?
That is to be determined.
Will I need to pay all of my student loans back?
Generally, if a student has private student loans, the student will still be responsible for repaying them. However, some states may have programs that assist students with private student loans in the event of a school closure if the student does not plan to continue their education. In addition, some private student lenders may offer options to assist certain borrowers in closure situations.

How will I keep in touch with other alumni? What resources are available? Prescott has agreed to support GMC alumni through its alumni office in Arizona.
We will be working with Class Agents to ensure that a vibrant alumni community is maintained. Going forward, we will rely on the thousands of GMC alumni across the country and around the world to carry on the legacy of the College.
Will there still be a Reunion this year?
No. In order to ensure that our students are able to complete their spring semester at GMC, we are eliminating all expenses not directly related to student education and student services.
What if I have made a planned gift to GMC?
We thank you for your thoughtful generosity and commitment to Green Mountain College, but in light of the closure announcement we encourage you to consider amending your estate plans so as to exclude GMC. If you choose to not make any changes, the court likely will step in to modify your planned gift under the cy pres doctrine. Under cy pres, the court will apply the funds in a manner “as nearly like” as possible to your original charitable intentions.
