You're More Than a Test Score

Students applying to Champlain may choose whether or not to submit standardized test scores, such as the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, and the ACT.  

After a careful evaluation of years of standardized test scores and academic outcomes, we have found that standardized tests do not provide a true indication of future student success with Champlain's hands-on education.

Additionally, we believe that requiring standardized test scores might create a barrier between a prospective student and the practical, career-focused education we offer. Students who do not submit official test scores will not be penalized during the application process, and their application will be considered equally to other applications.

Indicate Your Preference on Your Application

On the Champlain Application or the Common Application, you will be able to indicate if you would like us to consider your standardized test scores. If you indicate that you do not want them considered as part of your application, the reviewer will not be able to view your scores, even if you have previously submitted them.

If You Would Like to Submit Test Scores

If you would like your testing outcomes to be considered as a part of your application for admission, please send official test scores.

  • College Board SAT, please use code 3291
  • ACT, please use code 4298
