? Visit & Interview Opportunities

One of the best ways to get a true feeling of a university is to visit and ask questions. This is why Chapman is proud to offer a variety of opportunities to visit campus and speak with current students.

+ - Transfer Advising Appointments

Advising appointments can be in person or over the phone. Prospective transfer students can make an appointment by calling the Office of Admission at (714) 997-6711.

Advising appointments are not required, but can help those transferring from 2- or 4-year colleges create an academic plan that meets Chapman’s recommendations and requirements.

These appointments should be made prior to applying, and will not be scheduled for those who have applied.

Transfer students can also speak to a Chapman admission counselor at local college fairs. Many fairs also have available transfer advising appointments following the fair conclusion.

The Admission Fellows Program provides prospective students with the opportunity to meet with a current Chapman student. This is a great chance for you to learn more about Chapman, and for us to learn more about you. Fellows Interviews are offered on campus, by phone or via Skype.

Planning Your Campus Visit

When you come to campus, we hope you can stay for awhile. There’s plenty to do in Orange County and near campus. We especially hope you have time to visit Old Towne Orange. Old Towne is two blocks from Chapman and has great dining and shopping options.
