Chapman's Office of Admission staff is currently working remotely. There will still be several ways to connect with us during this time:

Admission Operations

Though Admission staff are working remotely, we are still able to review applications, process materials and release decisions. However, there may be a delay in getting some of these operations done.

School Closures and Test Cancellations

We understand that some students attend schools that are temporarily closed. Additionally, some required tests (GRE, TOEFL, IB/AP testing) have been cancelled or have limited testing dates available.

If a school closure or test cancellation is preventing you from completing your application or submitting any required or requested materials, please contact us:

International Student Visas

The Office of Admission and the International Student Services offices are operating remotely for the fall 2020 semester. During this time, we are processing I-20 Forms and assisting our students to understand the impact of immigration guidelines. Once you receive your I-20 Form, Please be in contact with your nearest U.S. embassy or consulate to schedule your visa interview when visa services resume.

For International Students Enrolling for Fall 2020

Since Chapman University is starting the semester remotely, we will work to provide you the necessary immigration documents to join us in the spring 2021 term. The Office of Admission will work with you in October 2020 to provide I-20 Forms for the spring.

Current students who are studying in their home country for the fall, and will be returning back to Chapman for spring 2021, will work with the International Student Service Office to obtain a new I-20 Form.

If you have any questions: undergraduate students can email Bryant Dowd at bdowd@chapman.edu and graduate students can email Monica Chen at mchen@chapman.edu


Frequently Asked Questions

Please keep in mind that the campus situation can change quickly, and there are many questions we cannot yet answer (especially those relating to the summer or fall). If you have a question that is not answered here, please email us at admit@chapman.edu.
