Determine your assigned registration date
Registration dates are randomly assigned, and cannot be changed. You can register anytime on or after your assigned date. You can view your assigned date and time on My.Chapman.edu in your Student Center.
Turn in your transcripts
Do you have any outstanding final transcripts that need to be turned in? Be sure to request them to be sent to the Office of Admission. Pending transfer credits may impact educational planning and may result in a miscalculation of the student's remaining credits and requirements.
Review your program evaluation and advisor notes and recommendations
Your program evaluation will be available online through My.Chapman.Edu. If you have not met with an advisor, you can use the program evaluation guide to assist you. A portion of the Academic Advising New Student Online Tutorial is dedicated to reviewing the Program Evaluation.
Complete the math placement test if necessary
Please visit the Math Placement website to determine if you need to complete the Algebra Placement Test based on your SAT/ACT scores or transferable college-level math course. If your scores do not meet the minimum criteria to be exempt from the Math 098/099 requirement, or if you have not completed a transferable college-level math course, you are required to complete the online Algebra Placement Test prior to registering for courses. Depending on your score, you may also be required to register in Math 098 or 099 in the spring 2018 semester. The Algebra Placement Test will be available starting December 8, 2017. For more information on the Math Preparatory Skills requirement (Math 098/099), please visit the Math Preparatory Skills website.
Take the Language Placement Test
Beginning December 8, login to Blackboard (blackboard.chapman.edu) and see the "Language Placement Exams" under My Organizations).
Select a math course
If you are placed in Math 098 or 099, it is required that you enroll in these courses in your first term, and that you complete these courses before the end of your first year at Chapman. If you place into Math 104 or GE Math, you are not required to take math in your first semester, although it is recommended. You can discuss your math course with your advisor during your advising session or follow-up phone appointment.
Register for a First-Year Foundation Course (FFC 100) if needed
