Fall 2020 Grading Basis Deadline Extension

The deadline to change the grading basis (letter grade or Pass/No Pass) has been extended from the end of the fifth week to the end of the tenth week for standard semester classes during Fall 2020. The new deadline is November 6th, 2020. Only courses that are allowed to be letter grade or PNP are eligible. As a policy reminder, students can take up to 6 credits per academic year as Pass/No Pass. This total does not include classes that are only offered as PNP. Please refer to the Academic Policies and Procedures section of the Academic Catalog for full details. See the instruction document to learn how to change the grading basis of a class in your Student Center. This deadline extension does not apply to graduate health science or law classes. This extension is in effect only for the Fall 2020 academic semester.

Fall 2020: Adding Classes that require a signature

If you need to register for a class that requires an instructor or department signature (such as waiving prerequisites or overriding the waitlist for a full class), the paper Registration Form is no longer active for Fall 2020. Students should now be using the online Permission Number Request system. For details on how to use this new system, please refer to the Permission Number Request Student Documentation

If you need to drop/withdraw from a class, you may do so via my.chapman.edu.

If you need to change the credit amount in a variable credit class, you may do so via my.chapman.edu.

If you need to change the grading option for a class (P/NP or Graded), you may do so via my.chapman.edu.

If you need to Audit a class, you will need to email registrar@chapman.edu from your Chapman email account and the instructor will need to email approval to registrar@chapman.edu. If you have a time conflict for registration, approval from both instructors should be sent to registrar@chapman.edu.

For questions on dropping/withdrawing/variable credit/grading options, you can email registrar@chapman.edu. For questions about Permission Number Requests, you can email the department offering the class. 

As a reminder, the waitlist is no longer processed when the semester begins and registration add requests must be submitted through the online system. 

Fall 2020 Class Instruction Mode

To satisfy the need of both online and in-person classes, Chapman will be offering classes in a few different formats in the fall.  Some classes will be delivered online only.  At the same time, a few classes will be designated as in-person only.  Most classes will be taught in a hybrid or “hyflex” format. To view the mode of instruction of your enrolled classes or classes you may need to register for, please see the Mode of Instruction document for details.
