Transfer Students

Welcome To a Transfer-Friendly College

A lot has changed since Champlain College was established in 1878, but our goal has remained the same: to prepare our students for successful lives and rewarding careers in promising fields. 

At Champlain, we know what it's like to be working toward an immediate goal and, at the same time, planning your long game. You've been working on building your skills, exploring your interests, and figuring out the direction you want to go. 

Now that you're ready to transfer colleges (or thinking about it), we'll help you take the next step toward your future—you're closer than you think to the career of your dreams.

Support Through the Transfer Application Process

We understand that the application process for transfer students differs from that of first time students. We have dedicated professionals to help you with the transfer application, transfer credit questions, the decision to start in the spring or fall, financial aid information, and much more. 

While it can feel daunting to "start over" when you transfer to a new college, here, you become an important part of our welcoming family. As a transfer student, you'll also become an integral member in a community of educators, artists, entrepreneurs, thinkers, makers, and doers—both on campus and in the greater Burlington area.

Learn why students transferring colleges choose Champlain, and why they are so glad they did.

We Are a Test-Optional School

Champlain is a test-optional school. What does that mean to you as an applicant? If you would like us to consider your standardized test scores, by all means, feel free to include them with your submitted application. Conversely, if you would rather us consider your application without them, we are happy to do that as well. Learn more...
