Commitment to Access
Chapman University College is a pioneer in offering quality academic programs within flexible course schedules designed to meet the needs of working adults. For nearly half a century, we have been committed to providing a challenging and exciting intellectual environment in which adult learners can reach their full potential and achieve their educational goals.
At Chapman, we aim high. Our University College offers fully accredited programs that meet - and exceed - rigorous accreditation standards. Our faculty have earned terminal academic degrees and hold, or have recently held, professional positions in their field. They are teachers who are able to blend professional practice with cutting-edge theory, and they are teachers who love to teach.
The University College is one of the eight schools and colleges that comprise Chapman University. Established in 1861, Chapman enjoys a long history and is highly regarded for value-centered education that leads to inquiring, ethical and productive lives. We have six nationally accredited programs, including an ABA-approved School of Law; and the overall excellence of our university is recognized by U.S. News & World Report, which ranks us in the top tier of western master's universities.
In the pages that follow, I invite you to become acquainted with Chapman in such a way that you will come to know the values and visions that drive us. I encourage you to visit one of our 27 University College campuses throughout California and Washington State and experience the sense of community of which we are so proud. Only then will you understand how we can help you expand your intellectual and professional horizons and prepare you to participate more fully in an increasingly complex world.
