Housing & Tuition Deposit

Deposit Information for Returning Students 2016-2017

We're excited to welcome you back to Champlain! All full-time students (residential and non-residential) must deposit by March 16, 2016 in order to register for Fall 2016 classes and participate in the housing selection process. Students who deposit after March 16 will not be permitted to participate in the housing selection process and will not be guaranteed placement in a Champlain residence hall.

Please note: if you fail to submit your tuition deposit by the March 16, 2016 deadline, it might delay your ability to register for courses during the registration period (April 4- April 15) and you may be subject to a $200 late registration fee.

Tuition Deposits:

Students returning full-time for the academic year 2016-2017 must pay a $500 tuition deposit before registering for fall courses. Your tuition deposit will be applied to your 2016 Fall Semester statement.

Students planning to reside in Champlain College housing, as well as students planning to study abroad, must pay a $500 housing deposit. The housing deposit will be applied to your 2017 Spring Semester statement. Students who withdraw from housing during the academic year forfeit the $500 deposit.
