» Departmental Requirements

The following academic programs require additional materials beyond the Common Application and application checklist items. Please carefully review the instructions and deadlines related to your first-choice academic major (as listed on your Common Application) and ensure that you fulfill them before the appropriate deadlines.

Pharmacy - Freshman Early Assurance Program

School of Pharmacy

Freshman/First Year applicants have the opportunity to apply for the Pharmacy Freshman Early Assurance Program (FEAP). The PharmD Program is only available to incoming freshman. Students admitted to the program complete the Chapman University School of Pharmacy (CUSP) pre-requisites over two years on the Orange Campus and receive conditional admittance to the CUSP Pharm.D. program. Pending pre-requisite completion and fulfillment of the Special Admission Requirements, students would then matriculate into the 3-year Doctor of Pharmacy Program at the Rinker Health Science Campus in Irvine. 

Applicants applying by the Early Action deadline of November 1 will be given priority consideration. Applicants applying after November 1 will be reviewed on a space-available basis.

Instructions for Pharmacy FEAP applicants to Fall 2017 are currently undergoing revision, and will be available for review by August 1, 2016.  Please check back at that time.

Transfer students please visit the School of Pharmacy for alternative pathways to enter the School of Pharmacy.

Creative Supplement

Talent-based Programs

In addition to the submission of your Common Application and Chapman University Questions our talent programs also require the submission of a Creative Supplement. Additionally, all programs within the Department of Dance, Theatre and Music require an audition, either in person or via upload in your Creative Supplement. If you are interested in a talent-based program, select it as your first choice academic major on your Common Application. A Creative Supplement is mandatory for all talent-based programs and requirements vary.

Our Creative Supplement application instructions for Spring 2017 and Fall 2017 are currently undergoing revision, and will be available for review by August 1, 2016.  Please check back at that time.
