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 not found that standardized tests provide a true indication of future student success with Champlain's hands-on education.
Additionally, we believe that the necessity of standardized test-taking and score submission might create a potential barrier between a prospective student and the specific type of radically pragmatic learning environment and education we offer.
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 your testing outcomes to be considered as a part of your application for admission, please send official test scores.
Champlain offers Personal Interviews as an optional part of the application process. Like our Test-Optional policy, Personal Interviews are completely up to you.
Personal Interviews provide you with a great opportunity to highlight specific aspects of your academic and extra-curricular experiences, goals, work/volunteer history, and personality that might not be apparent through your application alone.
To learn more about Personal Interviews and to schedule yours, see our Personal Interview page.
You can tell a lot about people by simply speaking with them. We encourage virtual Personal Interviews for high school seniors and transfer students interested in applying to Champlain. The conversation is casual—it's like two friends getting to know one another.
Our Application Dashboard allows you to monitor the status of your application and determine if you have any outstanding requirements. If you do not already have an account for our Dashboard, please create one using the same email address you used when applying.
