Recipients of an Americorps Education Award can apply those funds toward Yestermorrow course tuition, materials fee, lodging, and meal plan. Recipients must process their award through a Title IV institution. We are able to accept AmeriCorps Educational Awards for any Yestermorrow course through our academic partnership with Sterling College. Students using their AmeriCorp award, earn Continuing Education Units at a rate of $130/per unit. Generally, a weekend course is 1 unit, a one week course is 2 units, and a two week course is 5 units. This fee for CEUs is in addition to the Yestermorrow course tuition, materials fee, lodging, and meal plan, which can be covered by the student's AmeriCorps award.

To use your AmeriCorps Education Award, you will first register online for the desired course and put down the required deposit. The deposit will be refunded to you once Yestermorrow receives payment from AmeriCorps. Please email the Yestermorrow  Student Services Coordinator if you have registered for a course and intend to use your AmeriCorp Educational Award. 

Please call our office at (802) 496-5545 for questions regarding the process of applying your Americorps award to Yestermorrow courses.
