Transfer Applicants

Ready to transfer? We can’t wait to welcome you to Champlain.

Champlain enrolls 50-100 transfer students each year in both the fall and spring semesters, which means we review and accept applications on a rolling basis throughout the year. Please read these step-by-step instructions carefully, as the application process for transfer students differs from that of first-year students.

If you have any questions (about the transfer process or Champlain in general!), please do not hesitate to contact our Admissions team. Our Transfer Admissions Counselor can guide you through the application process, and a Transfer Advisor can assist you with a credit evaluation.
