Admission’s Fellows Program provides prospective students with the opportunity to meet with current Chapman student leaders. This is a great chance for you to learn about Chapman and us to learn more about you. Fellows Interviews are offered on-campus, by phone or via Skype.

To schedule an interview, you must be a high school senior or applying as a first-year applicant for the upcoming academic year.

These interviews are optional. The interview is used by the Admission Committee as an additional component in the application review process.

+ - Transfer Advising Appointments

Advising appointments can be in person or over the phone. Prospective transfer students can make an appointment by calling the Office of Admission at (714) 997-6711.

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.

Transfer students can also speak to a Chapman admission counselor at local college fairs. Many fairs also have available transfer advising appointments following the fair conclusion.
