Making a decision to transfer colleges can come with some serious considerations. You might be transferring from a community college, switching degree programs or making a change for other reasons. Whatever your situation, we understand that the evaluation and policy around transfer credits is very important to you and your college selection process.
Once your admission file is complete, your transcripts will be evaluated by the Registrar's office in conjunction with the appropriate academic division. In reviewing your transcripts, we will include your courses-in-progress if they are listed on your admission application. The transfer credit review process is summarized in a transfer credit evaluation audit and is sent with your acceptance letter. The information in this audit itemizes the courses and credits that you have completed and associates them with the specific degree requirements they meet when applicable. To be considered for transfer credit, a course must be completed with a grade of 'C' or higher.
The transfer credit review process is then summarized in a transfer credit evaluation audit, which is sent with your acceptance letter. The information in this audit itemizes the courses and credits that you have completed and associates them with the specific degree requirements they meet when applicable.

The courses and credits that you have completed are evaluated against the degree requirements of the major from which you are applying and evaluated against the requirements of the Core curriculum (our general education for all students). All students at Champlain must complete the degree requirements of their major and successfully meet the requirements of the liberal arts Core requirement for graduation. Students must complete their final 45 credits at Champlain.

Transfer credits — Major: The courses listed on your transcript and those listed as in-progress on your application will be compared to the course requirements in the major that you have applied. A maximum of 30 credits can be applied to your major requirements
Transfer credits — Core Curriculum: Core is our innovative approach to liberal education that's so much more than a liberal arts curriculum. Through discussion-oriented, problem-based and experiential classes, the Core prepares you to think critically, communicate effectively and become a well-rounded, intellectual leader in the professional world. There are no exams, but your assumptions will be tested regularly. This integrative style allows for a variety of courses in the liberal arts disciplines to be considered for transfer credit.
