Congratulations Panthers!

»Senior Hub

It's summertime!

Whether you are on campus taking that one last class, or interning halfway around the world and wondering if your diploma has been mailed yet, we have some resources to help our Class of 2014.

And Class of 2015, we haven't forgotten you or the exciting year ahead of you! Please take a peek at some of the resources and programs that will be a part of your senior year at Chapman.

+-Receiving Your Degree

Once your degree is conferred, you will receive a confirmation email stating your degree has been awarded. You can expect your diploma to arrive within 2-4 weeks from the date of the email, pending there are no holds on your account. All holds must be resolved before your diploma can be released. Please contact the department that placed the hold on your account if you have any questions.

Minors and emphases are not listed on the diploma. However, they are listed on official transcripts. Latin Honors are listed on the diploma. See the catalog for Latin Honors requirements.

For more information, visit Office of the University Registrar website.

+-Resources for New Alumni

Alumni Association Newsletter: We want to stay connected with you. Around the first of each month, you will receive an email for the Chapman Alumni Association to let you know about events, important updates, benefits, resources, and much more. Please be sure to read it and stay involved. Here is the latest email.

Alumni Website: Have you seen the Alumni website yet? If you haven't poked around it yet, you should! Check out the benefits and resources page to see what perks you get for being a Panther! Find ways to get involved as a graduate and find out what events are going on at Chapman and in your area.

CUYA's Summer Bash: A Newport Bay Soiree: Young alumni are invited to share in an evening of wine, summer brews, and appetizers. Stir up some friendly competition with good friends while playing lawn games and listening to music on a beautiful summer night at the Chapman Boathouse in Newport. Please join us Thursday, July 31 from 6:00 - 9:30 p.m. Tickets for new graduates are $20 with a portion going to support student scholarships, part of the Chapman Fund. The discount will be applied at checkout.  You can purchase tickets here.

+-Class Rings

On March 5, 2014, the new family of Chapman Class Rings were revealed. This exclusive design collection is available for purchase by undergraduates with a minimum of 60 credits completed, all graduate students, and alumni.

This past spring, students who purchased a Chapman Ring by the deadline were able to participate in the Inaugural Chapman Ring Dedication Ceremony. Alumni and family members were on hand as students dipped their rings in the waters of the fountain of Attallah Piazza as part of this very special ceremony.  Our next Dedication Ceremony will be in October 2014. Stay tuned for details!

For ordering information, please visit Balfour.

+-Senior Legacy

Thank you to everyone who joined the Senior Legacy and supported the university through your gifts. The Senior Class was able to raise more than $2,500 for incoming student scholarships, part of the Chapman Fund.

Please check out the Senior Legacy website to see who joined the Senior Legacy.


Commencement ceremonies for the Class of 2015 will take place during the weekend of May 22-24, 2015. Exact ceremony details are TBD.

+-Degree Conferral

In order to receive your degree (whether you participate in commencement or not), you must submit a degree conferral application online through WebAdvisor. You must have 90 completed credits to apply.

Click on ‘Apply for Degree or Certificate Conferral’ and enter your information. Select the term in which you will complete all the requirements for your degree. Degrees are conferred at the end of January, May, and August. There is no conferral fee for undergraduate students.
