Compass Student Services
Prior to enrolling in college, it is important that Veterans, Military Service Members, and their dependents have all the information they need to make an informed decision about which college to attend. Below are resources available to you to help you make your choice.
Champlain College is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education. Please refer to our accreditation information page to learn more.
The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet is a tool designed to outline the cost of attendance at the college and the financial aid awarded. The Champlain College Shopping Sheet will be provided to you if you are eligible for VA or military education benefits, you have been admitted to Champlain College and you have applied for federal financial aid using the FAFSA application. The Shopping Sheet includes federal, state and institutional grants and loans. It does not include Veteran Benefits that may be applied to the student account.

The College Scorecard which is a planning tool and resource to assist prospective students and their families as they evaluate options in selecting a school and is located at https://collegescorecard.ed.gov/school/?230852-Champlain-College.
The College Navigator is a consumer tool that provides school information to include tuition and fees, retention and graduation rates, use of financial aid, student loan default rates and features a cost calculator and school comparison tool. The College Navigator is located at http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/.
The “Paying for College” webpage which can be used by prospective students to enter the names of up to three schools and receive detailed financial information on each one and to enter actual financial aid award information. The tool can be accessed at http://www.consumerfinance.gov/paying-for-college/.
Even though you can receive multiple types of military benefits, you can also receive federal student aid via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You are required to use the FAFSA in order to obtain federal student aid. Unless otherwise noted, you shouldn't need to fill out any additional applications to be considered for federal or institutional scholarships or grant programs. Obtaining financial aid is exactly the same for online students as it is for students who are physically on campus. There are eligibility requirements and you must maintain satisfactory academic progress during your college experience to be eligible for financial aid. Champlain scholarships will be offset by the amount of the College's Yellow Ribbon contribution. Champlain College scholarships can be applied toward the student's cost of attendance. Please visit Champlain College Office of Financial Aid for detailed information.
