At Chapman University, we strike a true balance for the student-athlete, encouraging all students to blend academics and athletics into their personalized educations.
We offer a full menu of 21 intercollegiate sports, plus several club sports and a comprehensive intramurals program. Our teams compete in the NCAA's Division III, a group of schools dedicated to offering athletic opportunities as a complement to the academic experience of college. Like every Division III school, we do not offer athletic scholarships, but have generous aid programs based on academic achievement and financial need.
However, while the foundation of Division III athletics is participation, Panther athletic teams are most definitely competitive. Chapman has had 83 teams earn NCAA playoff berths in its 18 years at Division III, including 18 regional championships and two national championships in softball (1995) and baseball (2003). With state-of-the-art new facilities and coaches committing to the betterment of our student-athletes, Chapman University strives for excellence year in and year out.
We wish you all the best in this exciting search for your college home and hope that you'll find that Chapman Athletics offers what is right for you.
