This checklist is intended for students who are entering Chapman in the spring as a transfer student. Transfer students are those who are entering Chapman with completed college coursework AFTER their high school graduation date, from either a two or four-year college. 


Activating your Chapman Student Account

It outlines how to activate your Student Account. If it has been more than two weeks since your acceptance, please contact the IS&T Service Desk at (714) 997-6600 or servicedesk@chapman.edu for this information.

You will use this username/password to register online and access your student portal information system.
