There will be a service fee of 2.75% charged for payments made using a credit card. There is no fee for electronic check or savings payments.


Many of our courses use articles, journals and free ebooks for required reading instead of textbooks; instructors utilize Champlain College's free digital library to hold books and articles for students to access. Some of our courses do, however, require you to purchase books. To find out if your course has books you need to purchase, simply enter your course information (course and section number) into the campus bookstore website to see if there are any books listed. Remember, if you are receiving financial aid you may use your aid toward the purchase of books.
