Admission Requirements

Admission to the Argyros School of Business and Economics is determined separately from admission to the University. Currently enrolled Chapman students wishing to change majors to a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Bachelor of Science in Accounting, Bachelor of Arts in Economics or add a business or economics minor, must submit an application to the Argyros School of Business and Economics assistant dean for undergraduate programs.

Admission to the Bachelor of Arts in Economics requires completion of ECON 200 , ECON 201  and MATH 109  or MATH 110  with a grade point average of 2.700 or higher. Students may elect to repeat any of these courses in an attempt to earn a higher grade, but only the grades from the first two attempts of each of these four courses (three for the Economics degree) will be used to determine the student's eligibility to become an Argyros School of Business and Economics Major.
