Skeptical in All the Right Ways

Creative and highly individualistic, Champlain students are skeptical in all the best ways, questioning the status quo to find new paths forward. Envision a school where you can be creatively fearless. That school is Champlain College.

I didn’t expect to have the opportunities I have had and to be as professionally ahead of the curve as I am…I would never have expected to start an entrepreneurial venture and present it to senior vice presidents at Samsung in my first year at college, but connecting students with outstanding opportunities is a part of the Champlain experience.

Maximizing the Options

From institutional scholarships to on-campus employment, Champlain maximizes our students’ financial aid opportunities, reducing the overall amount they pay so that investing in their future is more affordable.

Simple. Straightforward. Guaranteed.

With our Count-On-It Financial Aid Guarantee, our students know that their scholarships from Champlain never decline as long as they are enrolled full time.

More affordable than you might think!

At first glance, cost can be jolting, but consider that the “sticker price.” Our actual price is the sticker price MINUS the financial aid package we put together. This makes a Champlain education much more affordable than you may think!

I received multiple scholarships that made it possible for me to attend Champlain College. Upon hearing the news that I was awarded financial assistance, my mom teared up, saying, ‘They believe in you before you are even there.’ My scholarships bridged the gap, allowing me to finish my degree and graduate with a 4.0 and a full-time offer at my dream job.
