» Getting Started on Transferology

Please follow these steps to use Transferology to determine how your classes will transfer to Chapman University.

If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to email us at transfers@chapman.edu.


Step 1: Log-in or Create Your Account

Make sure you use this specific Chapman University URL. You can use your email, Google or Facebook to sign in or create your Transferology account. At this point, you can follow the steps below or review the video from Transferololgy.


Step 2: Add Your Courses

Begin by adding a school name to input the courses you enrolled in at each school you’ve completed college courses.

You will also select the term and type out the course department name (course abbreviations) for your courses.

Step 3: Search Your Matches

Once you have finished adding your courses, “My Courses” on the right-hand side of the page will populate with the colleges you attended and courses you completed. Click on “Search Matches” to preview your courses.

Step 4: Filter by Chapman

Click “Filter By School Name” and type out “Chapman University.” Click on the Chapman University “Match” box. Courses will be divided into sections titled “Matches,” “Maybe,” and “Misses.”

Step 5: Request Information

You can send us a copy of your courses by clicking on “Request Information” on the right-hand side, above the Chapman logo.

Within the “Request Information” dialog box, create a “Custom Message” and provide:

  • Your major
  • Your likely Chapman entry term
  • Your contact information
  • If transferring from a California community college, indicate if you’ll be fulfilling an IGETC/CSU/AA or AS-T Transfer Plan

Once complete, click on “Send to Chapman University.”

Step 6: Check Your Email

We will be in touch within two business days.

One More Step: Meet with a Transfer Team Member

Transfer advising appointments are not required, but can help those transferring from 2- or 4-year colleges create an academic plan that meets Chapman’s recommendations and requirements.

These appointments should be made prior to applying, and will not be scheduled for those who have applied.

Advising appointments are available over the phone. You can make an appointment by contacting the Office of Admission at transfers@chapman.edu or (714) 997-6711.
