If you’ve taken the time to get to know us and you know that this is a place where you can thrive, applying Early Decision is the best way to indicate to our Admissions team that you are all in for Champlain.
There are a few benefits that you'll enjoy no matter where you apply, but every institution has a few unique advantages that come with applying Early Decision. Champlain makes it easy to apply for free as an Early Decision candidate, and you'll receive the same financial aid consideration as all other applicants—this isn't the case at all colleges.
Here are the six big advantages you'll receive when you apply Early Decision:
If you apply by the Early Decision I deadline of November 15, your admission decision and financial aid offer will be sent in mid December. You'll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy knowing that you'll have your decision weeks or months before other applicants.
When you apply Early Decision, you are competing amongst a smaller pool of applicants overall. You will compete against a few hundred Early Decision applicants, compared with the thousands of students who will apply Regular Decision.
If admitted to Champlain College, you'll receive your financial aid offer letter at the same time you receive your acceptance letter. All Early Decision applicants receive the same financial aid consideration as all other applicants, and if your financial aid offer does not meet enough of your demonstrated financial need, you may request to be released from the Early Decision agreement.
All of our majors are popular, but a few are so popular and specialized that they have enrollment caps. If you’re interested in a program that Champlain is well known for, you can put yourself at an advantage by applying Early Decision. The Early Decision plan allows you to compete against a smaller pool of applicants for the highly coveted spots in these competitive majors.
As an Early Decision admitted student, you will receive priority in the housing preference and roommate selection process and be among the first matched with a roommate and placed in one of our Victorian-era mansion residence halls.
We pride ourselves with providing a highly personalized approach to all we do at Champlain. However, in Early Decision, we are processing fewer applications at one time so our Admissions and Financial Aid teams are able to provide families with extra attention.
There are no risks to applying to Champlain College through our Early Decision plan. You'll be glad you did!
