Select an advising method
If you select in-person group advising (recommended), you must RSVP for a workshop (see link above). If you have completed the online tutorial in full and would like to schedule a follow-up phone appointment, you will need to contact the AAC at (714) 744-7959. It is recommended that advising is completed well in advance of your assigned registration date. Please check your Registration Eligibility on WebAdvisor.
Complete the math placement test if necessary
All students who have not been waived out of Math 098/099 based on SAT scores will be required to take the online math placement exam. You can check for Math 098/099 waivers on your program evaluation accessed through WebAdvisor.
Take the Language Placement Test
Login to Blackboard (available under "quick links" on the Chapman homepage)
Determine your assigned registration date
You can view your assigned date and time by logging in to WebAdvisor, and clicking on "registration eligibility." Registration dates are randomly assigned, and cannot be changed. You can register anytime on or after your assigned date.
Select a math course
If you are placed in Math 098 or 099, it is required that you enroll in these courses in your first term, and that you complete these courses before the end of your first year at Chapman. If you place into Math 104 or GE Math, you are not required to take math in your first semester, although it is recommended. You can discuss your math course with your advisor during your advising session or follow-up phone appointment.
Register for a Freshman Foundation Course (FFC 100)
All new freshmen are required to take a Freshman Foundation Course in their first semester of enrollment.
Note: Students who have completed at least one full-time semester at a 4-year institution, or at least 15 credits at a community college will be waived from the FFC requirement. College courses taken while in high school (concurrent enrollment) do not apply to the FFC waiver.
Fill in the rest of your schedule with General Education courses
After reviewing recommended first-term courses for your major, you can then select courses from any area of the General Education program. More information will be provided in your advising session/tutorial.
Build your preferred list in WebAdvisor
Step by step instructions will be provided in your advising session/tutorial. You may also want to utilize the registration worksheet to aid in your planning.
Register for courses
All course registration is completed online through WebAdvisor, on or after the student's assigned registration date and time. Students will not be able to register until the advising requirement is completed.
