General Policies

Tuition Billing Information

Payment for the fall semester is due no later than July 20 each year or the day you register for classes, whichever is later. Payment for the spring semester is due no later than December 20 each year or the day you register for classes, whichever is later. Late registration does not change the payment due dates.

Monthly billing statements are available online only through Chapman eBill.

Billing, payment and general information is also available at www.chapman.edu/sbs.

A student will not be given credit for coursework completed, granted honorable withdrawal, provided a transcript of credit, be allowed to enroll in further classes or be permitted to participate in the comprehensive exams and graduation ceremonies, with any unpaid balance owed to the University or a University sponsored agency.

Late Payment Fee

Payments received after the due date(s) will be assessed a fee of 0.833 percent.

Health Insurance

Health insurance is optional for all graduate students (except international and health science students) and must be purchased no later than the third week of the fall semester (spring semester if you are a spring start).

For international and health science students, the mandatory health insurance may be waived by providing proof of health insurance coverage.

Dewar Tuition Insurance Plan

A tuition refund plan is available to students and parents to guarantee a refund of all monies paid to the University, in the event that the student suffers a serious illness or accident and must withdraw from the University before the semester is completed, but after the established withdrawal dates for tuition credit referenced in this section.* This elective plan provides coverage for tuition, fees, room and board charges. No exceptions are made to the tuition credit (withdrawal) policy for students/parents who elect not to purchase this coverage. For further information, please refer to the general information page on the student resources business office link on the Chapman website.

*Coverage must be purchased prior to the first day of school.

Add/Drop/Withdrawal – Financial Aid

Dropping below full–time or part–time status will affect any financial aid that has been awarded. Please contact the Financial Aid Office.

Specific procedures for adding or dropping a class must be followed as specified in academic policies and procedures.

A petition to withdraw from the University or drop classes after tuition credit deadlines as outlined in academic policies and procedures will in no way affect the student’s financial obligation to the University.

Specific procedures for withdrawal from classes must be followed as specified in academic policies and procedures.

Please note that the dates to withdraw or drop classes for tuition credit differ from those to withdraw or drop classes for academic purposes.

Whether any refund will result from the tuition credit received depends on the payments that have been made.

Failure to attend class or merely giving notice to an instructor will not be regarded as official notice of drop/add or withdrawal.

*Students choosing to remain enrolled past the last day to drop with refund are obligated to cover all tuition, fees, room and board charges incurred in accordance with the refund policy for tuition, room and board charges.

Within the first week of the semester

100%

Within the second week of the semester

Within the third week of the semester

Financial Aid

Chapman University offers opportunities to graduate students to apply for financial aid through Chapman University and the federal government.

Financial Aid Application Procedure

Students who wish to apply for a Chapman University Graduate Fellowship are urged to contact the Office of Admission or the school into which they have been admitted to learn if a separate application form is needed.

To apply for federal financial aid (loans) students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

When completing the FAFSA, please be sure to list “Chapman University, Orange, California” in step six of the form. The Title IV School Code for Chapman is 001164. The application becomes available January 1 of each year.

The priority filing date for FAFSA is March 2 of each year for the following academic year. For instance, preference will be given to students who apply by March 2, 2015 for the 2015–2016 academic year. Funds will be awarded to students who apply after the March 2 priority deadline; however, funds may be exhausted in some programs.

Please contact the Graduate Financial Aid Office with questions: (714) 628-2730. A toll–free telephone number also is available: (888) CU–APPLY. In addition to calling the Graduate Financial Aid Office, the federal government can be contacted for information about completing the FAFSA: (800) 4 FED AID.

Graduate Fellowship

Graduate fellowships are funded by Chapman University and are awarded by each school to entering students. The application procedures, eligibility requirements, recipients and size of the awards are determined by the school to which the student has been admitted. Inquiries about the program may be addressed to the office of the dean of the appropriate school.

Student Loans

Chapman University participates in the Federal Direct and Federal Perkins loan programs. In addition, there are many private loans available to graduate students.
