Dear Champlain College graduate,

Congratulations once again on your graduation from Champlain College !Our records reflect that you graduated in August or December 2021, which means you are invited to join us for Champlain’s Commencement ceremony, taking place Saturday, May 14, 2022 at the Champlain Valley Expo, near campus in Essex Junction, Vermont.

This is a special opportunity to come together and celebrate your accomplishments with fellow classmates, faculty and staff, and family and friends. We know it will be a memorable day that marks this momentous achievement.

We want to ensure that the celebration is a safe gathering for students and families. We continue to closely monitor the landscape of the pandemic on campus and in our broader community and we will keep you informed of safety protocols or any adjustments in our plans.

In the coming weeks, you will receive an email from us requesting important information and actions you will need to take leading up to Commencement, including:

  • Ordering regalia
  • Verifying your mailing address
  • Confirming your attendees at the ceremony (each student may extend invitations to up to eight guests), and more. 

We will also be reaching out to you for stories about your Champlain experience to make the ceremony special. And, we will be sharing with you an invitation to apply to be our Commencement 2022 student speaker. In the meantime, please visit the Commencement 2022 webpage for updated information. If you have any questions, please contact us at We look forward to celebrating you in May!
