We want to do all we can to help you navigate the challenging news that Becker College will close at the end of the semester. There is great synergy between Becker and Champlain, and we believe that you will find the perfect academic home here at Champlain College.
We understand that this is a stressful time, and if you have any questions or would like support, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Admissions team.
Champlain College guarantees admission for current Becker College students who are in good conduct and academic standing at Becker College with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and/or withdrawn Becker College students who were in good conduct and academic standing at the time of withdrawal and withdrew within the last two academic terms.
- Graphic Design majors will be admitted to Champlain’s Graphic Design & Visual Communication major
- Interactive Media Design will be admitted to one of Champlain’s Game Studio majors
Those students interested in joining one of the Game Studio Programs (Game Art, Game Business and Publishing, Game Design, Game Production Management, Game Programming, Game Sound Design) will be accepted after a formal review of their credits to determine which program best suits their current academic progress and appropriate placement to achieve graduation. Students intending to join Game Art or Game Design may require a demonstration of portfolio work.
Students with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 will be considered for admissions subject to our standard transfer review process.
