Early Decision

If Champlain is your first-choice school, this is absolutely the right application for you. If admitted, applying through Early Decision will allow you to have your admissions decision weeks before regular applicants! And it has other benefits, including the ability to submit your enrollment deposit sooner, thereby allowing you earlier access to our house selection and roommate pairing tool.

Explore Champlain Open House:
A Great Way To Get Started

These events are a great place to start if you're just beginning to explore whether Champlain may be the right fit for you. You'll get a sense of what it's like to live and learn at Champlain through a virtual tour of campus led by one of our Student Ambassadors. You can play a fun game of trivia with other attendees (and maybe win a prize!), and you'll get answers to your most pressing questions through a current-student panel.

RSVP for Dec. 12 @2:00—4:00 PM (EST)
