The college search and application process is exciting and complex. Here at Champlain College, we understand the added challenges you've been facing this year and that your educational experiences have been greatly altered. We want you to know that we're here to support you and work with you.
We've compiled some frequently asked questions, but if there is any other way we can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to our admissions office at email@example.com. You can also find more information in our extended FAQ.
Yes. As part of our plan to sustain an open and interactive student experience, including in-person instruction and on-campus activities, it is required that all students returning to campus, including those studying abroad, be fully vaccinated with an FDA-approved or authorized vaccine. We will work with individual students who have qualifying exemptions, including for medical or religious reasons. If you have questions, please contact Student Health Services at (802) 860-2711.Link to this FAQ
We've been test optional for the last few years and continue to be so. Being test optional means that we leave it up to the applicant to decide whether or not they'd like us to consider testing as a part of their application. If you are unable to test this year, or don't feel that your testing accurately reflects your abilities—no problem. If you choose not to send in testing, we'll focus more heavily on your transcripts to paint a picture of what type of student you've been and how you may contribute to the academic culture on our campus if admitted.Link to this FAQ
We understand that lockdown was very different, and that many schools made changes to their grading structures as a result. We will look at each application in the context of what was offered to that student. No student's chances of admission will be negatively affected by the changes in learning and grading that have been altered due to circumstances beyond your control.Link to this FAQ
Please know that we understand how difficult these last couple of years have been. So many opportunities were put on hold and activities that brought you joy, helped you relieve stress, and allowed you to come together with a shared interest were suspended.
That's hard. The Champlain Admissions Office wants you to know that we understand how difficult this has been for you and that we would never disadvantage an applicant for not having been able to participate in an activity. We care about your wellbeing, and your safety above all else. This is a time to focus on doing what you need to for yourself and your family. Do not worry about building a resume or list of accomplishments, you'll have plenty of time for that in the future. Be well, stay safe and take care of yourself.Link to this FAQ
Absolutely. We've all had to adapt to new and different ways of doing things this year. We understand the challenges associated with having to adapt to a new learning environment while also experiencing all of the emotions that came along with these sudden changes. Our hope is that over time you've been able to adapt to this new environment, and that you're feeling more comfortable as the days go on. Continue to work hard, do the best you can, and we'll see that reflected in your application.Link to this FAQ
