The lists of courses that can be counted toward your GE Program are found here.

Remember, some IES courses can double count toward GE program requirements (up to 3 courses between major programs and GE requirements, 2 courses with minor program and GE requirements.) Check the GE areas of inquiry lists at the link above to see if a class that you will take in IES will also fulfill a GE requirement.

General Information Regarding Registration

If you would like to review your program evaluation in preparation for the upcoming registration period, you can schedule a meeting with an Attallah College Peer Advisor (PA). If possible, please schedule appointments at least 24 hours in advance so that the Peer Advising Team can gather the appropriate resources needed to best assist you.

  • PA McKenna Etheridge: Curriculum & Instruction Juniors & Seniors and Undecided interested in Schools Emphasis
  • PA Grace Rothman: Declared Schools and Community Emphasis  and Undecided interested in Community Emphasis

  • Important Information Regarding Registration
  • Please be Advised: There will be no permission numbers issued to students to enroll in or waitlist courses for which they do not hold the requisites. Consideration of issuing a permission number for a class you do not have the requisites for will commence after the registration period has ended.

    Change of major/minor forms will NOT be accepted or signed by the IES department after the  Office of the Registrar’s deadline of October 22, 2020. Forms received after this date will not be processed until after the registration period, which could impact the ability to register for classes.

    If you have questions regarding general education, please call the Office of Academic Advising at (714) 744-7959. You can specifically search for courses that fulfill GE requirements in the myChapman portal. (There is a dropdown menu near the bottom of the search page where you can specify GE criteria in your search.
