Welcome to Chapman
Welcome New Students!

»Welcome to Chapman University!

Whether you're a new freshman or transfer student, we would like to welcome you to Chapman University! The Academic Advising Center is committed assisting you throughout your time at Chapman. Our mission is to coordinate and support an advising program that consistently provides students with information and counsel they need to develop sound educational goals, and to make effective decisions about University courses and programs that will enable them to realize those goals.

Chapman University offers a range of academic advising services to support your academic planning, assist with registration, and address your individual interests and needs. While each department and office provides its own unique service, we all work together to provide assistance and resources for Chapman students. It is important that you make regular contact with your professional advisor in the AAC and your program advisor in your major department.

**REGISTRATION TIPS FOR NEW STUDENTS**

+-In-Person Advising

In-Person Advising takes place on the Chapman University Campus in Orange, CA.

We will soon have information posted regarding this summer's advising schedule. Stay tuned!

It is imperative that all students transferring any coursework to Chapman turn in their official transcripts/AP or IB scores to the Registrar as soon as possible.

Visit our Freshmen or Transfer section of this website for more information on in-person advising.

+-Online Advising

In early June, an online tutorial will be available for those students who are out of the local area, or who are comfortable receiving important information in an electronic environment. The tutorial will cover all of the same information as the in person workshops.  Follow-up phone appointments with an advisor, or email options will be available for students who have additional questions after completion of the tutorial. 

Please check back again in early June.
