Missing Admission Items

» Missing Admission Items for Spring 2024

To do: Submit Missing Application Items

You can track any missing application items in the checklist in your Application Status Page. Please request any missing materials as soon as they are available.

Incoming students for the spring may need to submit select items to satisfy their admission requirements:

  • College transcripts (with summer 2023 grades)
  • Transcripts showing dual enrollment
  • Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate transcripts

In addition, all admission decisions are contingent upon continued academic success. You are expected to maintain your reported overall grade point average and current course grades. If these drop below what was reported on your application, your offer of admission might be withdrawn.

Submitting transcripts

If you have completed college coursework and received college credit, please request your official college transcripts be sent to the Office of Admission directly from your college.

  • Official transcripts are required from all high school and colleges you previously attended, even if you withdrew from the course(s) or the course(s) were non-academic or not applicable to your college major.
  • A final official transcript, showing summer 2023 term grades must be mailed no later than December 1.
  • College courses listed on high school transcripts are not considered official. A separate college transcript must be sent for any type of college-level course taken during high school. Information about course substitution and credit is available on our Transfer Credit and Articulation page.
  • We cannot accept transcripts that are sent to us from the student. For a transcript to be considered official, it must either:
    • Be submitted as a PDF to Chapman directly from the issuing institution. The Admission office email address for transcript delivery is admtranscript@chapman.edu.
    • Remain in its original sealed envelope when mailing documents to:

Credit Limitation on College Units

No more than 32 units will be awarded to incoming high school students through dual college credit taken in high school and/or through certain scores on AP/IB exams.

Transfer students can transfer a maximum of 70 semester units from the community college system. There is no limit on the maximum amount of credits that can be transferred in from an approved, accredited four-year college.

To view all credit limitations, visit our online course Catalog.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

For students entering Chapman with completed college work and/or submitted AP or IB exam results, please refer to your Transfer Credit Report on your Student Portal. The report lists exams and courses received and qualifying transfer credit.

For units currently in progress or for AP and/or IB exams that have not yet been submitted, please note that the Transfer Credit Evaluation will continue to update as additional transcripts and test scores are submitted through the Office of Admission.

Please contact the Office of Admission at admit@chapman.edu with any questions regarding your Transfer Credit Evaluation.


Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) transcripts

Official AP scores and IB transcripts are required to obtain college credit. For test scores/transcripts to be considered official, they must be received directly from the issuing board.

Please provide any available test results/transcripts at the same time you submit your Enrollment Deposit. Send results for senior year exams as soon as possible.

To send your AP scores or IB transcripts, use the following:


Deferment and Interrupted Enrollment

If your plans change for your spring semester, you might consider deferring admission or taking an interrupted enrollment:

  • Deferring admission means you are moving your entry term forward by one semester or academic year.
  • Interrupted enrollment means taking time off after completing coursework through Chapman University.

You can learn more about both options here.

If you are considering either option before the start of the semester, reach out to your Admission Counselor. All deferrals must be approved by the Office of Admission before the semester begins.
