We understand that the process and policy around transfer credits is very important to you and your college selection process.
To be considered for transfer credit, a course must be completed with a grade of C or higher. Courses in which a C- or below is earned will not transfer in to Champlain College. Once your admission file is complete, your transcripts will be evaluated by the Registrar's office and, in some situations, the program director of the major that you are applying. In addition to reviewing your transcripts, we will include your courses-in-progress if they are listed on your admission application.
The transfer credit review process is summarized in a transfer credit evaluation audit and is sent with your acceptance letter. The information in this audit itemizes the courses and credits that you have completed and associates them with the specific degree requirements they meet when applicable.
The courses and credits that you have completed are evaluated against the degree requirements of the major from which you are applying and evaluated against the requirements of the Core curriculum (our general education for all students). All students at Champlain must complete the degree requirements of their major and successfully meet the requirements of the liberal arts Core requirement for graduation.
Students must complete their final 45 credits at Champlain.
