Military & Veterans Admissions

Our goal is to make the admissions process quick and painless so you can focus on what's important - your service, your work, your loved ones and your career goals.

Put Your Service to Work for You.

The Champlain College Online admissions process is designed to take into account your whole story. We are interested in your previous academic record, but knowing you have much more to bring to the table as a military service member or veteran, we also take into account your current and previous work and service experiences, as well as your personal and professional goals. Our dedicated Veteran and Military Program Manager is eager to help you identify education benefits available to you, and our academic advisors will work with you throughout your educational journey - especially during deployment - to ensure you stay on track to complete your program.
