Advising Information for Undeclared Students

Being undeclared is an opportunity to allow students to explore majors that align with their interests, strengths, and goals. Officially, the University policy requires undeclared students to be in a declared major by the time they complete 60 credits. The AAC is here to help students in exploring and finding their major by the time they complete that 60 credit requirement.

The Academic Advising Center offers students:

  • Undeclared major advising
  • Major and minor exploration
  • General education course planning
  • Understanding graduation requirements
  • Referrals to resources

Meet with an Advisor:

If you are undeclared or want to change majors, the Academic Advising Center can help you. You can make an appointment to meet with your advisor by calling the AAC at (714) 744.7959 or in person at Beckman 406. You can also email your advisor.

+-Majors that Require Additional Steps to Declare:

The following majors either require an application, audition or review process. Please work with the department if you are considering one of these majors:

+-Steps to Declare a Major:

  1. Download and print the “Change of Program” Form www.chapman.edu/students/academic-resources/registrar/student-services/academic-program-changes.aspx
  2. Meet with the Department Chair of the Major to get their signature on the “Change of Program” Form. You can find the Department Chair on the Advising Portal: http://www.chapman.edu/students/academic-resources/advising-portal/program-advising/index.aspx
  3. Turn in the “Change of Program” form to the Office of the Registrar.

Please note:

To declare some majors, there may be an application, audition, or portfolio review process, or a set of courses that must be completed with certain GPA requirements before being permanent in the program.

Change of Major or Minor Program Forms submitted at the Registrar's Office during priority registration dates will not be processed until the conclusion of the registration appointment period.
