Financial Aid, Grants & Scholarships for Transfer Students

All transfer applicants admitted into a Champlain degree program automatically receive an annual $10,000 scholarship and are considered for other merit-based scholarships.

Our Count-on-it Financial Aid Guarantee

Transfer students are eligible to receive college scholarships (which do not need to be repaid) based on achievement, need, and other characteristics. You can count on your scholarships from Champlain being consistent from year to year, renewing annually for as long as you are enrolled full time.

That's our Count-On-It Financial Aid Guarantee.
