What is Academic Probation?

Any student whose term or cumulative GPA at Chapman drops below 2.00 will be placed on academic probation. 

Students on academic probation are required to meet with their academic advisor to review their grades, and develop a probation agreement which may include repeating courses, tutoring, academic mentoring, and regular meetings with an advisor.  Students on academic probation may enroll in no more than 14 or 16 semester credits each term they are on probation (credit totals depend on their cumulative GPA).

Academic Advising Appointment Guidelines

  1. If appointments are fully booked, please try again the next day. Appointments spots are released every day.
  2. Cancellations should be done at least 24 hours in advance to allow other students to schedule. Please be respectful and considerate as other students also need to schedule appointments. Should you need to reschedule or cancel, please use the “manage booking” option in your confirmation email. If you do not see this option, please email advising@chapman.edu for assistance.
  3. Please only schedule one appointment at a time to be considerate of other students who need an appointment. If you schedule another appointment before the first one has been conducted, the second appointment will be canceled.
  4. Your appointment may be canceled if the wrong information is input when you schedule an appointment. For example, wrong ID number, email typo, etc.
    1. Please note that if you do not get a confirmation email within an hour of booking your appointment, you did not input your information correctly. Email advising@chapman.edu with any questions or concerns.
  5. Appointments may only be scheduled by the student. Academic advisors are unable to speak with parents, guidance counselors, or other family members without the student present. 
  6. All appointments are reserved for current students at this time. Prospective students should continue to work with the Office of Admissions and their Admissions Counselors until new student advising begins. The Office of Admissions contact information can be found here.
