Transfer of credit analysis is performed on an individual basis after an application is submitted and our operations team has confirmed that it is complete, with “official” transcripts from all academic institutions attended, and an applicant is accepted into one of our academic programs.
Before an accepted applicant receives an offer of admission from Champlain College Online, our transfer credit evaluation team will identify the program requirements that have been fulfilled, on a course-by-course basis, based upon the student’s official, documented prior learning. They will also highlight the courses that will be required in order to fulfill the program requirements. All of this will be included in a single form that will be sent to the newly admitted student via email.
Additional opportunities for earning potential transfer credit can be discussed with a student’s academic advisor after admittance. Examples of additional opportunities include, but are not limited to CLEP; alternative credit providers, such as Study.com; demonstrating prior knowledge through C-KET, Champlain’s proprietary knowledge evaluation tool; and completing an individual learning portfolio following the completion of a portfolio course.
Students also have the potential to earn undergraduate transfer credit after enrollment - no matter how far along they are in their program. If you’ve acquired an industry certification, or completed documented training that has been validated by ACE or NCCRS during the course of your academic program, we can evaluate it to see if it might be eligible for additional transfer credit.
