» Business Majors with Transfer Prerequisites

Student working outside on his laptopSeveral majors in the Argyros School of Business & Economics require and recommend foundation and/or prerequisite courses. You can find the required and recommended courses for those majors below.

To find which transferable courses at your college match Chapman’s prerequisites, please use the Transfer Course Approvals website. This will give you the most updated articulation information. You can find directions for using the Transfer Course Approvals website below.

A few items to keep in mind while reviewing prerequisites:

  • You must have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA in all your required prerequisites.
  • Some prerequisite courses may double count for general education (Chapman shared inquiries) and major requirements.
  • Pre-requisite courses can be in progress at the time of applying.

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

  • If you do not see a course, it does not necessarily mean that it is not transferable. It could mean that it has not yet been articulated by Chapman. If you can not find your course, please contact us at transfers@chapman.edu for assistance.
