Degree Design Lab Transfer Pathway Program

One of the unique features of this program is the advising provided by the Degree Design Lab faculty, who will guide you from day one to help you connect what you’ve learned in your associate degree program to what you want to do in the future. We value the knowledge and skills you developed in your associate degree program, and the Transfer Pathway Program will help you continue in that field or transition to a new academic and career focus.

Flexible and Customizable

The Degree Design Lab is a career-focused program that leverages Champlain College’s strengths in professional degrees. In the Transfer Pathway Program, you will combine traditional coursework with experiential and project-based learning opportunities that connect your prior academic experience to one of our career-focused areas of study.

If you have an associate degree from an accredited institution, you can transfer into Champlain’s Degree Design Lab program and all of your previously earned 60 credits will apply toward your Champlain College bachelor’s degree. If you have earned credits beyond the 60 needed to complete your associate degree, you may be able to apply up to 15 additional credits to your Champlain degree program.

With the credits you have earned toward your associate degree, you will need only 60 additional credits – two academic years – at Champlain to complete your Bachelor of Science in Integrative Professional Studies. Degree Design Lab faculty will help you select one of the following career-focused majors to anchor your studies.
