Transfer Prerequisites

» Transfer Prerequisites

Several majors at Chapman University require and recommend foundation and/or prerequisite courses. You can find the required and recommended courses for those majors below.

To find how your transferable courses at your college match Chapman’s prerequisites, you can use Transferology. This free tool will give you the most updated articulation information.

A few items to keep in mind while reviewing prerequisites:

  • Some prerequisite courses may double count for general education (Chapman shared inquiries) and major requirements.
  • Prerequisite courses can be in progress at the time of applying.

If you have any questions, please email us at transfers@chapman.edu.
