Office of Undergraduate Admissions

At Champlain, we promise you an education that will leave you ready for work, ready for life, ready for anything. 

Clearly, we practice what we preach, and we pride ourselves on being ready for anything as an institution. As you know, coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused people across the country to change plans around events, and we have closed our campus to visitors until further notice.

But you can still learn all about how Champlain will give you what you need to begin opening the doors to your future career success through our Live Virtual Information Sessions,  our Virtual Tour, and special events we have planned for our Admitted Students

Of course, we're always available to email, text, chat on the phone or schedule a virtual meeting. Simply contact us at 802.625.0201 or, and we'll set something up! Keep scrolling to see ways we can stay connected and keep your college search moving forward.


We Want to Hang Out Too!

We would love to have you to campus right now. We would. But with everything going on, we're going to take our visits online until with live presentations in our Virtual Information Sessions. You'll get all the good information you would in our on-campus, in-person sessions, and you'll also be able to ask questions in real time. Register for a Virtual Information Session today, and we'l see you online!


Virtual Admitted Student Day 

We hope that the news of your admittance to Champlain College is a bright spot in the challenging time presented to us all by COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We understand you are being called upon to make a college decision in this trying time. We are so sorry that this is the current reality for you. We created Virtual Admitted Student Days for you and your family to experience Champlain from wherever you are. Join us on April 18th or April 25th and find out what learning and living is like on our beautiful campus and maybe win some prizes!


There Is Still Time To Apply

We know that our traditional deadlines have passed, but given the current reality of COVID-19, we are receiving increased requests to apply for Fall 2020. We would like to honor those who are changing plans by reopening our admissions for this coming fall. Our Admissions team is working remotely and  are processing applications as we speak.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Admissions Office directly.
