Financing Your Chapman Education

Last year, Chapman invested over $120 million in our students, with more than 80% of undergraduates receiving some form of aid. The average award is around $29,000 per student. That is why we believe cost should not discourage you from applying to Chapman. You can learn more on our Financing Your Education page.
