Finances


Tuition and payment are managed by the Office of Student Accounts. Our goal is to provide courteous, quality service and to support the educational goals of the College with the application of financial policies and procedures in an effective and efficient manner while adhering to federal policies governing the disbursement of federal financial aid to our students.

The Office of Student Accounts is located at Perry Hall, Room 140

To speak with a representative in our Compass Student Services regarding billing inquiries, please send an email to compass@champlain.edu. Please include the student name and ID number in the subject line, or call (802) 860-2777 or (800) 570-5858, ext. 2777.

Failure to pay your account when due may result in a $100.00 to $250.00 late- payment fee and your suspension from classes, as well as withholding of grades, transcripts or degrees.

Refund Policy

Tuition: In case of voluntary withdrawal or dismissal from the College, a portion of the tuition may be refunded. Full-time Champlain College Online students must notify their student services advisor in writing of their intent to withdraw from the College. The date this written withdrawal notification is received by the registrar, or the effective date, whichever is later, becomes the official withdrawal date and the basis for refund calculation.

Full-time students are charged a flat rate tuition fee per semester. If a student changes from full-time to part-time status (less than 12 credits,) once the semester begins, there will not be a reduction in the tuition and fees per course.

Refunds - Federal Financial Aid: The responsibility for returning unearned Title IV aid is shared between Champlain College and you. It is allocated according to the portion of disbursed aid that could have been used to cover College charges and the portion that could have been disbursed directly to you once those charges are covered.

Champlain College will distribute unearned aid back to the Title IV programs, as specified by law. You will be billed for the amount that you owe to the Title IV programs, as well as for any amount due to the College as a result of Title IV aid that was returned that would have been used to cover College charges.

Students and parents should also be aware that under federal regulations, any refund due as a result of withdrawal from the College must first be applied to repayment of ineligible federal loans and grants. Any remaining credit is then refundable to the student. In compliance with these regulations, refunds would be applied in the following order:

1. William D. Ford Direct Unsubsidized Loans

2. Direct Subsidized Loans

3. Direct Parent PLUS Loans

4. Federal Perkins Loan

5. Federal Pell Grant

6. Federal SEOG Grant

7. State Grant

8. The student

Students utilizing Veterans Administration (VA) education benefits under Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment or Chapter 33 Post-9/11 GI Bill® will provide proof of eligibility to the office of Veteran and Military Services upon enrollment at Champlain College.  The college will accept the following for proof of eligibility:

  • A VA form 1905 signed by the veterans vocational rehabilitation counselor for Chapter 31 VR&E benefits
  • A certificate of eligibility letter from the VA or a statement of benefits printed from the veterans ebenefits.va.gov account for Chapter 33 Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits

  • Deny students access to classes, libraries or school facilities

The office of Veteran and Military Services will coordinate with, and provide updates to, the office of Student Accounts on behalf of all students utilizing VA education benefits to ensure that no adverse financial actions are taken.
