Financial Aid, Scholarships & Grants

It's important to ensure that your investment in higher education not only provides a world-class academic experience but also prepares you to enter an increasingly competitive marketplace. At Champlain, we are proud of our success in delivering an education that truly gives our graduates a great advantage. 

We invest in our students and recognize their academic achievement each year through our financial aid programs. Each year, our students receive more than $36 million in Champlain merit and need-based scholarships. More than 95% of students received scholarship funds, which do not have to be repaid, to help pay their educational costs.

Helping our students maximize all of their financial aid opportunities is a key service we provide. Our Office of Financial Aid helps students understand the options available and the process of applying for scholarships, grants, loans, payment plans and employment opportunities. If you've determined that you want Champlain's unmatched professionally focused education, we will work with you and do everything we can to make it affordable for you and your family.

My experience at Champlain has done so much to prepare me for my future career. All of the different internship experiences, real world application of my knowledge within my classes, and the relationships I've built have benefited me more than I ever thought would be possible.
