The Academic Advising Center at Chapman University offers a range of services to meet the advising needs of students.  We are responsible for advising all undeclared  students; for providing professional development opportunities for faculty advisors; and for serving as an advising, information, resource and referral center for all Chapman students needing current information about general education, degree requirements, and academic policies.

+ - Mission Statement

The mission of the Academic Advising Center is to cultivate an educational partnership with students, guiding and supporting them toward the development and achievement of their academic goals.

Through individual appointments, small group advising sessions, and more, the Academic Advising Center will provide the following services for undergraduate students:

  • Answer questions concerning academic policy, transfer credit, the appropriateness of general education courses, changing majors, petitions, etc.
  • Provide advising workshops for new students and assist with registration.
  • Provide comprehensive advising for all first year students.
  • Serve as primary advisors for undeclared students.
  • Make referrals to additional advising resources and academic support services.

Underlying all of these services is the goal of educating students so that they might assume their appropriate responsibilities in the academic advising process.

+ - Advising at Chapman

Undergraduate students have both a program advisor in the department of their major and an advisor in the Academic Advising Center. Students can visit www.chapman.edu/advising-portal to find the contact information of the program advisor for their specific major department.

In addition, students can look on my.chapman.edu to see which faculty member he or she has been assigned to for major-related mentoring (questions regarding academic pursuits, career options, and research).
