Chapman evaluates home-schooled students (and all other students) through a holistic process. Here are the factors Chapman uses to determine admission:

  • Strength of curriculum
  • Grade trends and overall academic performance
  • SAT or ACT scores (test scores are required for home-schooled applicants)
  • Personal Statement and responses to Chapman University questions
  • Letter(s) of recommendation
  • Extracurricular activities, jobs, non-academic activities and responsibilities
  • Academic major and preparation for major
