  • The Chapman University Office of Financial Aid is experiencing longer-than-usual processing times due to the amount of requests and submissions of documentation. We understand that our students and their families are eager to be awarded for this upcoming school year and we are diligently working to process all submissions. We apologize for any inconvenience this delay causes and are fully committed to making sure each CU Panther is awarded for the new school year and ready to focus on their education when the fall semester arrives. We appreciate everyone’s patience during this busy time and we will process each submission in the order that it was received. If documentation has already been submitted, the student will hear from us when their paperwork has been processed and they have been awarded. If information is still needing to be submitted to our office, please do so as soon as possible and we will process it in the most timely manner.

  • Direct Loan Origination Fees have changed due to the sequestration!  Find out more here.

Our Commitment

Since 1861, Chapman University has been making it possible for students from all walks of life to enjoy the benefits of a Chapman University education. We are proud to be a part of our university’s rich heritage of service and dedication to others.

Our tuition and the generosity of donors make possible our high caliber faculty, small classes, and personalized education, while our generous financial aid programs make attending Chapman a reality for all.

We make every attempt to keep our students informed of new laws and regulations.  Students will be informed of changes via e-mail, letters, web page and bulletin board postings, and telephone communications.

When awarding aid, Chapman University must follow all laws and regulations of the federal and state of California aid programs. Our decisions are based on these rules, the information you and your family provide, the number of applicants and the total funds available.
