As we look forward to the fall 2020 semester, we want you to be aware of the many academic resources that continue to be available to undergraduate Chapman students to assist them in their academic success—and how best to reach these resources during this challenging time during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our students, whether working remotely or on campus, have the full support of the academic resources available. Below is a list of academic resources, including:

  • What is available
