It's important to ensure that your investment in higher education not only provides a world-class academic experience but also prepares you to enter an increasingly competitive marketplace. At Champlain, we are proud of our success in delivering an education that truly gives our graduates a great advantage.
We invest in our students and recognize their academic achievement each year through our financial aid programs. Each year, our students receive more than $37 million in Champlain scholarships. More than 90% of students received scholarship funds, which do not have to be repaid, to help pay their educational costs.
Helping our students maximize all of their financial aid opportunities is a key service we provide. Our Office of Financial Aid helps students understand the options available and the process of applying for scholarships, grants, loans, payment plans and employment opportunities. The Financial Aid staff is always available for in-person or phone appointments with students and families.
The financial aid application process is separate from the admissions application. Do not wait for your admissions acceptance before applying for financial aid.
All applicants who are accepted to Champlain will automatically be considered for Champlain's merit scholarships. These scholarships are awarded to students who exemplify excellence in academics and engagement outside the classroom-traits that characterize our outstanding faculty and student body. All applicants who are accepted to Champlain and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will also be considered for additional need-based awards from Champlain College and the state and federal government, including scholarships, grants, federal work-study and loans. The FAFSA is the only financial aid application required by Champlain College in order to receive a financial aid award.
The priority filing dates for completing the FAFSA are listed in the chart below based on the admissions program. Students seeking need-based funding from Champlain are encouraged to submit the FAFSA by the priority filing date, although applications are accepted throughout the year. Champlain College's need-based scholarships will be awarded first to students who meet the FAFSA priority filing date and then on a rolling basis, if funds are available, for students completing the FAFSA at a later date.Link to this FAQ
