Returning to Champlain College
Students who wish to return to Champlain College as an undergraduate student after any separation must complete a formal application for readmission. Readmission allows a former degree candidate to resume a degree program. The process for returning is based on a student's status when they were last enrolled. Readmission is appropriate if you:
All readmission applications are considered through the Registrar's Office. Readmission is neither automatic nor guaranteed.
Students within the Continuing Professional Studies (CPS) division should contact their Academic Advisor. CPS students are not required to submit the readmission form above.
Tuition Deposit Form
As part of the readmission process, the Tuition Deposit Form MUST be completed. Traditional students will not be officially allowed to register for classes until this form has been submitted.
GENERAL INFORMATION FOR READMISSION
Undeclared: Students who have earned 30 or more credits may not return to Champlain as Undeclared students without meeting with a member of the Registrar's Office or the Office of Admissions.
Inactive Programs: Students wishing to return to the College in academic programs that have been inactivated may do so only with the permission of the Provost. Should you fall into this category, a member of the Registrar's Office will contact you upon receipt of your readmission form.
Catalog Year: Students returning after being gone no more than 2 semesters are permitted to follow the degree requirements associated with their original catalog year. Students reapplying after a separation of more than 2 semesters are required to meet the degree requirements of the most current catalog year, unless otherwise authorized by the Provost.
Credits Limitations: The maximum number of credits that may be transferred is 75.
Deadlines: To be considered for the spring semester readmission applications must be completed by December 1st. To be considered for the fall semester, readmission applications must be completed by August 1st.
Readmission for Graduation: Students who wish to be reactivated or readmitted to Champlain in order to transfer in remaining credits for graduation should contact the Registrar's Office at email@example.com.
Readmission after Academic Dismissal or Suspension: A student who has been dismissed for academic reasons or suspended for nonacademic reasons is eligible to request reinstatement through the process outlined in the Readmission Policy. Upon receipt of the readmission application and all corresponding documents, the Dean of the division and/or VP of Student Life will review the application package and notify the student of their decision.
Transcripts: Students who completed credits at another college after leaving Champlain must have an official transcript forwarded to the Registrar's Office at Champlain. These transcripts should reflect all academic work undertaken since the student left Champlain. If the student is approved for readmission with coursework in progress, the student's admission status will be provisional pending receipt of the final transcript.
Residential Life: Champlain College does not guarantee on-campus housing for readmitted students. If you request on-campus housing, Residential Life will be notified.Link to this FAQ

Champlain College recognizes that transgender, non-binary, and/or gender-nonconforming students may not use the name that they were assigned at birth, as it does not reflect their identity. We also recognize that, for a variety of reasons, students may not wish to go through a legal name change-or may be in the middle of doing so-but don't want to use their dead name in class and on campus in the meantime. To accommodate this, the College has staff in place to assist students who wish to update their email addresses, academic class listings, and ID cards with their chosen name.
To inquire about or begin the process of updating an email address, academic class listing, and ID card, please complete the Chosen Name Request Form. Students wishing to learn more about the specific scope of this option before completing the form should contact Lisa Mazzariello at firstname.lastname@example.org, located in IDX Student Life Center 315.
Current Students: Please complete the Address Change Request Form. You will be asked to sign in to your Champlain College account.
Alumni: Change your address or phone number by completing this form.Link to this FAQ
