» Transfer Credit and Articulation

Chapman University articulation staff determine the transferability of coursework taken at other institutions and provides transfer credit approval service to Chapman students.

Articulation Specialists at the Registrar's Office evaluate courses for degree credit, or for credit toward general education and general transferability. The articulation team evaluates transfer credits within established university policies and guidelines. They also evaluate the transferability of some lower division major prerequisites, or their equivalencies to specific Chapman courses, based on department guidelines.
