Chapman University maintains a record of the courses that previous study abroad students have taken, and the equivalent Chapman credit that was granted for each course. To view the course equivalencies for this program, click “Sample Pre-Approved Courses” at the top of each program brochure page. Please note that Sample Pre-Approved Courses are courses that have been previously requested by a Chapman student for credit. It is not a comprehensive list of all courses available at the institution.

Universities in the Southern Hemisphere have different academic schedules with the first semester usually beginning in February and the second semester beginning in July. So for Chapman’s fall semester, please search for “Second Semester” courses and for Chapman’s spring semester, please search for “First Semester” courses.
When searching by “Paper Code”: Do not add a space between the letters and numbers of a paper code (i.e. "STAT110" not "STAT 110"). On the course list provided on the ISA Dunedin, New Zealand: University of Otago - Academic Year/Semester website, you’ll find the course code written underneath the course title. For example, MANT252 is written underneath “Developing Responsible Leadership”. If you type “MANT” into the paper code, you’ll find all Management courses.
When searching by “Keywords (e.g. Statistical Methods)”: Search through the A-Z subject list. If you don’t type the subject in exactly as shown on this list, you may not get results. For example, for business courses, scan through the whole list because they may be found under various subjects: Business Administration, International Business, Management, Marketing Management, etc.
Students are encouraged to request additional or revised equivalencies during the pre-departure process, which will be evaluated by the appropriate academic units on campus.
