+-When to Go
Transfer students can apply to a study abroad semester, Travel Course, or International Internship program before they arrive at Chapman, but cannot go abroad until after their first semester. Read more about these three types of programs you can choose from:
Semester / Academic Year: Transfer students must apply one year in advance for a semester program. You are allowed to go abroad your last semester as long as you fulfill your final requirements to graduate while abroad.
Travel Courses: Travel Courses in summer or interterm may be a particularly appealing option for transfer students that have just recently arrived at Chapman and are concerned about meeting their major requirements. Summer and Interterm Travel Courses are 1-4 weeks and consist of actual Chapman courses taught by Chapman faculty. They are a great way to satisfy GE and major requirements.
International Internships: Summer International Internships are also an appealing option for transfer students who are concerned about meeting their major requirements and would like to get both cultural immersion and international work experience. International Internships are 8-10 weeks and a great way to satisfy an internship credit and allow students to live and work abroad.
