Applicants from 2 or 4-year regionally accredited colleges may enroll during the fall, spring or summer semesters. Transfer applicants who have earned more than 24 semester hours of college credit are required to submit the following credentials:

Conditional Admissions Offer

Under some circumstances, students may be offered admission on a conditional basis. Policies governing conditional admission will be communicated to the applicant with the official offer of admission. Students on conditional admission are not able to compete in NCAA Division II sports during their first year at Chaminade University.

Provisional Acceptance

Students applying for admission but unable to provide official transcripts and documents can be accepted on a provisional basis provided they have unofficial copies of their transcripts and documents. Students on provisional acceptance are required to provide the university with official documents during their first semester of attendance.
