Champlain College encourages all students to apply for financial aid. Applying for aid is the only way to know if you will be eligible for grants, federal work-study, loans and scholarships, and it will not affect your chances of being admitted to the College.
The financial aid application process is separate from the admissions application. Do not wait for your admissions acceptance before applying for financial aid.
All applicants who are accepted to Champlain will automatically be considered for Champlain's merit scholarships. These scholarships are awarded to students who exemplify excellence in academics and engagement outside the classroom—traits that characterize our outstanding faculty and student body. All applicants who are accepted to Champlain and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will also be considered for additional need-based awards from Champlain College and the state and federal government, including scholarships, grants, federal work study and loans. The FAFSA is the only financial aid application required by Champlain College in order to receive a financial aid award.
The priority filing dates for completing the FAFSA are listed in the chart below, based on the admission program. Students seeking need-based funding from Champlain are encouraged to submit the FAFSA by the priority filing date, although applications are accepted throughout the year. Champlain College's need-based scholarships will be awarded first to students who meet the FAFSA priority filing date and then on a rolling basis, funds available, for students completing the FAFSA at a later date.
FAFSA Priority Filing Dates*
|Early Decision I: First-year only||November 1|
|Early Decision II: First-year only||December 15|
|Regular Decision: First-year||January 15|
|Regular Decision: Transfers||Rolling|
