If Champlain College is your top choice school, you should absolutely apply through our Early Decision option. It's easy, it's free, and there are some key benefits to doing so.
Find out what's what sooner than any other applicant. You'll get your admission decision and financial aid award earlier, and you'll be able to enjoy the rest of your senior year and begin making plans for your transition to our campus in Burlington.
Increase your chances of admission. When you apply Early Decision, you are competing against a smaller pool of applicants overall: approximately 400 vs the 5,000+ that will apply through the Regular Decision option. The rate of admission for Early Decision applicants is higher than it is for Regular Decision applicants. Typically, more than one-third of our incoming classes are admitted through Early Decision.
Take advantage of first access to housing selection. Priority for housing placement is given based on the date the enrollment deposit is received. Early decision applicants receive their admissions decisions earlier than other applicants allowing them to be among the first matched with roommates and assigned a residence hall. As each of our 20 Victorian-era mansions offers different styles and views, you might want to get involved in this process on the front end of things.
Secure your spot in a high-demand major. All of our majors are popular, but a few are so popular and specialized that they have enrollment caps: Game Art, Game Design, Game Programming, and Game Production Management. Additionally, Computer & Digital Forensics, Data Science, Filmmaking, Professional Writing, and Computer Networking & Cybersecurity are also in high demand. The Early Decision option allows you to compete against a smaller pool of applicants for the highly coveted spots in these programs.
Enjoy more personalized admissions and financial aid support. We pride ourselves with providing a highly personalized approach to all we do at Champlain. However, in Early Decision, we are processing fewer applications at one time so our Admissions and Financial Aid teams are able to provide families with extra attention.
Every institution has different Early Decision policies. Champlain makes it easy to apply, with a few simple things you will want to know.
