International Supplement Form

» Completing the Undergraduate International Supplement Form

All undergraduate international applicants are required to submit an International Supplement Form as part of their application. This form will be available in your Application Status Page after you have submitted the Common Application.

The International Supplement Form provides Chapman University with information about your country of citizenship, current visa status, passport and, for students who intend to hold an F-1 student visa, funding for your education.

You will be asked to submit the following documents as part of your International Supplement Form:

  • Photocopy of passport data and signature page
  • Evidence of available funds (see dropdown menus below)

You will also be asked about the type of visa you currently hold and the type you intend to hold at Chapman.

Give yourself enough time to gather all the documents needed for your International Supplement Form so you can fill out all the required fields. 

Contact us at intladmit@chapman.edu for assistance or with any questions.

Evidence of Available Funds

Applicants must submit evidence for each type of funding that applies to their situation. Below you will find acceptable forms of documentation for your evidence.

If your total amount of funding is not equal to or greater than Chapman’s cost of attendance for international students, you should include the difference in the Amount Needed From Chapman section of your International Supplement Form. 

Merit-based scholarship decisions are made at the time of admission. Need-based aid is typically awarded by April 1st.
