I had a really bad semester, will my bad grades affect my financial aid or scholarships?

A bad semester or a withdrawal might affect financial aid eligibility.  Merit scholarships (Presidential, Provost's, Dean’s, Board of Trustees, and Founder’s) require that students maintain minimum cumulative Chapman grade point averages of 2.75 at the end of each academic year.  Talent Scholarships (music, dance, art, theatre, science, athletic training, creative writing/journalism, film) require a minimum Chapman cumulative GPA of 2.0, but the terms of the scholarship may require a higher GPA in your major. In addition, generally you must complete at least 12 units or more each term.
