In order to receive your degree (whether you participate in commencement or not), you must submit a degree conferral application online through the Student Self Service portal (https://my.chapman.edu). You must have 90 completed credits to apply. After logging in, select the link for My Academics on the left-hand side. On the My Academics page, select the 'Apply for graduation' link and choose your expected graduation term. This term should be when all requirements will be met for your degree, not necessarily when you intend to participate in Commencement. Click submit once you have selected your term. To edit your diploma name and diploma mailing address, return to the My Academics page and select 'View my graduation status.'
To change your conferral term, please email email@example.com. Degrees are conferred at the end of January, May, and August. There is no fee for degree conferral.
The preferred deadline for degree conferral submission is January 15th. You will not get email information regarding Commencement until your degree conferral application has been submitted.
