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signature (such as waiving prerequisites or overriding the waitlist for a full class), the paper Registration Form is no longer active for Fall 2020.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 Instuction document for details.

Degree Conferral and Diplomas

Due to academic policy changes for Spring 2020, the conferral process to award degrees for the May 2020 graduates requires a more thorough review of degree requirements. Once your degree is awarded, you will receive a confirmation email. Diploma mailing time is estimated at 4-8 weeks from the date you receive the confirmation email, pending you have no holds on your account. We thank you for your patience during this time.

Notarized Diplomas and Transcripts

Notarization requests for diplomas and official transcripts are temporarily unavailable. California does not allow notaries to do notarizations remotely. Students in need of notarized diplomas should contact the requesting organization to see if other documentation can be provided.
