A Message from the Director of Admissions

Best wishes for the new school year from Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont! We look forward to working with you and your colleagues as you guide prospective students and their families through the college admissions process. We are excited to welcome our incoming class of 650 first-year students-the largest class in Champlain's history! Over 40% of the class applied Early Decision. Together, they come from 36 states and diverse locations across the globe. The Class of 2020 has begun their academic, social and cultural journey as our faculty and staff nurtures them toward a successful and fulfilling career path.

We are also celebrating being named a "Most Innovative School" for the second year in a row by U.S. News and World Report in its "America's Best Colleges" 2017 ranking of regional universities in the North. Champlain was also included in the 2017 Fiske Guide to Colleges and The Princeton Review's 2017 "Best 381 Colleges." Finally, our new Women's & Gender Center is open. Champlain College is committed to fostering an inclusive, safe and welcoming space for all gender identities and sexual orientations, and the new Women's & Gender Center will serve as a student-focused physical space for all students to gather.
