As excited as we are for our future as Northern Vermont University, we are also proud of our history. And nothing makes us prouder than 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 and our structure is changing, 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.

Please visit the alumni websites for both campuses for more specific information about events, meetings and leadership opportunities, giving, and other alumni-related content. When the colleges officially unify on July 1, 2018, NorthernVermont.edu will become the single source of information for both campuses. 

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.
