Personal Interviews for High School Seniors & Transfer Students

Personal Interviews are a wonderful way to add value to your application by showing us who you are and what you value. Personal Interviews are an optional—but encouraged—part of the admissions process and are available to high school seniors and transfer students seeking admission to Champlain.

Benefits of a Personal Interview

We're a personal kind of place. We believe in adding the human touch to all we do. Our Personal Interviews are one-on-one casual conversations between yourself and someone on our Admissions team. It's less like an interview and more like a casual conversation between friends.

Some of the benefits of making time for an optional Personal Interview include:

  • Getting to know you adds value to your application and other credentials. We care about what you think and what your goals are.
  • You'll have a chance to ask about the College, the admissions process, and if you are a good candidate for Early Decision Admission.
  • You'll get to experience a bit of Champlain's famous close-knit community and friendly people.
  • You'll be able to demonstrate your high level of interest in your future as a Champlain student.

We Are a Test-Optional School

Champlain is a test-optional school. What does that mean to you as an applicant? If you would like us to consider your standardized test scores, by all means, feel free to include them with your submitted application. Conversely, if you would rather us consider your application without them, we are happy to do that as well. Learn more...

The Champlain Visit Scholarship

Normally we would recommend a campus visit for all applicants for whom it is feasible, but due to COVID-19 we are currently unable to welcome you to campus. Good news though, we can bring campus to you through our virtual visits & events. When you attend one of our virtual information sessions you will be eligible for our $4,000 visit scholarship. Learn more about the Champlain Visit Scholarship...
