You may still have questions about transfer credit and how it works at Champlain College Online. Below are answers to some of the questions we are asked the most.
Can I find out whether credits I earned at another college will transfer before I apply?
At Champlain College Online, we are passionate about helping our students complete their degrees, and we work diligently to be certain you receive the maximum transfer credits possible. To get a full picture of your prior education, professional experience, and any certifications or trainings that might be eligible for transfer credits, we require that you first complete an application. There is no cost to apply, and our application is designed to ensure that every potential transfer credit opportunity is taken into account.
How does Champlain determine if a course is eligible for transfer credits?
Decisions regarding transfer credits are based on criteria provided by Champlain faculty in the related academic area and comparing that criteria to the description of the course received from the college where you completed the course. See the transfer credit policy for more details.
Do my grades transfer as well as my credits earned at another institution?
Credit hours for your transferred course are given full value, but your grades are not transferred to your permanent record at Champlain and do not become part of your cumulative quality point average (CQPA).
Will my credits for IT courses transfer?
Due to the quickly changing nature of IT, technical courses you took many years ago may have to be repeated because of substantial changes in the field or emerging technologies. You will be informed of this after transfer credit review.
