» Academic Program Changes

The official university catalog is the primary resource for students who are considering changing their major or minor. Review the catalog for critical information about degree requirements.

After researching their options, students are strongly encouraged to meet with the Academic Advising Center, a faculty advisor, or a department chair prior to submitting the form to the Office of the University Registrar to change their major or minor. The Change of Major/Minor Form from the selected catalog year will indicate which programs require a signature from the department chair. Academic Departments approving the programs may forward the form to the Registrar's Office on behalf of the student.

Forms can be submitted in person at the Office of the University Registrar, via Panthermail to aps@chapman.edu, by fax, or by mail.  Printed and signed forms may be faxed to (714) 628-2707, or mailed to the Registrar's Office Academic Program Specialists. It is recommended that forms be opened in Chrome or Internet Explorer. If using Firefox or Safari, please download and save the form before editing. 

Chapman University “Change of Program Forms” are accepted and processed by the Office of the University Registrar throughout the year except during registration periods in November and April.  Any Change of Program Form submitted later than one week prior to the first day of scheduled registration appointments in November or April will not be processed until the conclusion of the two-week registration appointment period. Operationally, this means that none of the following changes to student academic records will be made during registration appointments:

  • Change of existing major or minor program
  • Addition of a major or minor program
  • Change of a declared Area of Study
  • Change of a declared Emphasis
  • Change of a declared Concentration

For program changes associated with a Catalog prior to 2013, please email aps@chapman.edu for more information.
