Learn About Early Decision

If Champlain is your first-choice school, this is the right application option for you. If admitted, it will allow you to have your admission decision weeks before regular applicants and has other benefits, including the ability to submit your enrollment deposit sooner thereby qualifying for first access to housing. 


Apply Now

To apply for admission, you must first submit an application through the Common Application. If you have received an invitation to apply through our Champlain Application, you can apply there. All applications, no matter which you choose, are considered equally. There is no need to submit more than one application, and once we have a completed application, we will confirm receipt. Please note that there is no application fee for either application type.


Schedule a Personal Interview

If you are a senior and are thinking about applying, we highly encourage you to schedule an interview. This can be on campus, off campus or via Google Hangout or Skype. An interview helps us look beyond your submitted materials to get a fuller picture of whether you are a good candidate for our career-focused approach and hands-on education.


Plan Your Visit

The Champlain College campus is one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. We invite you to visit us using one of the many weekday and weekend options. In addition, the Champlain College admissions team hosts events and interviews throughout the country.
