» Tuition, Aid & Fellowships


In order to find out how much it will cost to attend the Conservatory of Motion Pictures, please visit the tuition section of the Chapman University website. Any questions regarding financial aid should be directed to the Financial Aid office.

For Dodge College graduate students, there are not many fees added outside of the standard tuition. First year students are expected to fund their own projects for class, but this outside cost is minimal. Second year students are given approximately $900 for their major project. Once students reach their final year in the program they receive $10,000 for their thesis film. The amounts given to students are adequate for most projects students will complete. If a student wants/needs to spend more than these amounts, they will need to find the funding on their own, outside of Dodge


Dodge College offers a fellowship grant to a select number of students each year. These scholarships are given out based on the application materials submitted, and are given in amounts up to $10,000 a year. There is no separate application process for fellowships. In order to be eligible for a fellowship, students must apply by the December 1st deadline.
