Transferring from CCV to Champlain College Online 

Champlain College has created a partnership with the Community College of Vermont (CCV) that allows students who have earned an associate degree from CCV to easily transfer into Champlain College's online bachelor's degree programs. To maximize transfer credits to Champlain College Online, we encourage you to meet with a Champlain admissions counselor early in your CCV degree program.

Our Signature Transfer-Friendly Bachelor's Program

Integrated Studies

Many students come to Champlain with a significant number of credits that don't fit precisely into one of our existing degree programs. In order to maximize transfer credits and get students to completion faster, we've designed the Integrated Studies degree, our signature transfer program. Students with an A.S. in any field can pursue a B.S. in Integrated Studies. We will accept up to 60 degree-credits, provided that a grade of C or higher has been earned in each course. If students have additional college credit, work experience, or job training, we are happy to review it to see if it is eligible for transfer credits, up to a total of 90 degree-credits.

Completer Programs

Champlain offers several "completer degrees" for CCV students, which allow them to directly apply their full 60-credit load from their associate degree to a bachelor's degree. These options allow students to maximize their transfer credits and transition easily into a four-year program. In these programs, Champlain will accept certain CCV associate degrees as a block of 60 degree-credits, which means you'll be halfway to the 120 credits required for a bachelor's degree and will have junior status at Champlain College Online.

Business Completer Degree

Students with an A.S. in Business from CCV can pursue a B.S. in Business Management from Champlain College Online. Our business completer degree was designed to fit all credits earned through a CCV A.S. in Business, assuming that students maintained a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5. If you are eligible for the completer degree in business administration, you will automatically be enrolled during the admissions process.

CCV students who have successfully completed an A.S. in Business at CCV are also eligible to apply to several on-campus bachelor's degree programs, including the BS in Business Administration, BS in Finance, BS in Marketing, BS in International Business, and BS in Management & Innovation.

Healthcare Administration Completer Degree

Champlain's online B.S. in healthcare administration completer degree accepts all CCV A.S. degrees as a block of 60 credits, provided that applicants are working in the healthcare industry and have maintained a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 in their CCV coursework. If you are eligible for the completer degree in healthcare administration, you will automatically be enrolled during the admissions process.

Other Completer Degrees

CCV students who have successfully completed an A.S. at CCV are also eligible to apply to a number of on-campus bachelor's degree programs. Click here to learn more about transferring to a campus-based bachelor's degree program.

Transferring Into Other CCO Programs 

If your CCV associate degree does not apply to one of the completer degrees listed above, or you're interested in a different field, you can still apply to transfer your community college credits to any of Champlain College Online's bachelor programs.

We look at your transcripts and try to find a match for every course in your A.S. degree with a course we offer, assessing whether the competencies earned in your previous classes align with the competencies embedded in ours. 

Because we work with so many CCV students, we have already determined equivalencies for every CCV course within our course portfolio, making the transfer process even easier for you. Click here to find the Champlain equivalent for any CCV course.

We know that in general, students transferring in credits from a CCV associate degree program will generally earn a certain number of transfer credits, depending on their CCV associate degree field and their program of interest at Champlain. The number of transfer credits awarded will vary based on factors such as electives students have chosen to take.The following table represents the low and high ends of the credits that will transfer into each of Champlain's online bachelor's degrees from CCV's associate degrees.
