About Lyndon State College

In 1911 a one-year “normal” school for teacher training was established by the Vermont legislature at nearby Lyndon Institute. The Lyndon of today, which has grown gradually and naturally from its roots as a teacher education institution, is committed to student success, and to helping each student achieve his or her full potential. At the same time, the College continues its commitment to the community at large, striving to respond to the needs of the region and to serve as the educational, intellectual, and cultural hub of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Serving a near-record enrollment of 1,450 students, Lyndon now focuses not only on the academic dimension of student experiences, but on the entire learning process, which includes many activities that take place outside the classroom. Lyndon State College offers two- and four-year degrees and graduate degrees in education and liberal arts. Looking to further your education without pursuing a degree? You can take many courses from our comprehensive course selection without being enrolled in a degree program.
