Chapman University uses an electronic billing system, eBill/TouchNet, that allows you and anyone you have authorized to access your student account and eBill statements online. Chapman University does not send paper statements.
Each month, an eBill will be generated for all students who have activity of any kind on their student account. Students and authorized users (if applicable) will be sent a notification via-email each month informing them that a new monthly billing statement is available to view.
Please note that the Business Office makes every effort to answer questions received but may have to refer you to another department to resolve your inquiry.
See Tuition Payment Options to view when tuition will be due and Chapman University's payment plan option.
The preferred methods of payment are via ePay, the secure online payment gateway offered through our online billing service, or by wire transfer.
Wire transfer information is on the Student Business Services page under Making a Payment.
Payment can be submitted in person at the Cashier’s Office in the Bhathal Student Services building or by mail to: Chapman University
One University Drive
Orange, CA 92866
If mailing a payment please include your student ID number on your check or money order you mail to the Cashier's Office.
Accepted forms of payment are cash and checks or money orders payable to Chapman University. Credit cards are not accepted for tuition payments but can be used to purchase commuter meal plans, establish declining balance accounts, pay for transcripts, replacement ID cards, etc. Visa, MasterCard and Discover Cards are accepted.
A hold can be placed on your records by departments to ensure that the student complies with a university or federal regulation. A hold can prevent a student from registering for a future term, or obtaining a transcript, diploma or other university services. You can view your holds in my.chapman.edu. If you have a hold, please contact the department(s) for further assistance.
The Tuition and Fee Master Payment Contract is required of all students and notifies students and responsible parties of their rights and responsibilities regarding the tuition account.
Student loans, grants and most scholarships are disbursed within the first two weeks of the semester if the student meets all eligibility criteria (i.e. enrolled in the correct number and/or type of units) and has completed all required paperwork to secure these funds. PELL and CAL Grants are not disbursed until after the end of the second week. Students expecting a refund can come to the Business Office to charge commuter meal plans, declining balance deposits, and purchases from the Bookstore (go to the Bookstore first to determine how much you need) against the pending credit prior to receipt of the aid if the aid can be confirmed. After the aid is applied to your tuition account you can request a refund of any credit balance.
My Financial Aid has not posted to my account or doesn't match my award letter:
Once your Faculty Internship Advisor has approved your internship application, Chapman's Career and Professional Development internship coordination will review your application. Once it is approved, you will receive an automatic email, and it will take 3-5 business days for the Registrar to officially register you in the internship course. Please check My Chapman to verify whether you have been registered in your course within that timeframe. This is how you will receive credits/units needed for tuition billing and Financial Aid award purposes.
To see if your funds are available, log into my.chapman.edu and select 'Access ePay' under the Finance Section. On the next page, if the amount has a minus (-) sign, check with the Business Office to request your refund.
Refunds can be requested with the Business Office in person or by emailing your Student Account Advisor from your Chapman email address.
If the refund is caused by the PLUS loan, parent permission to release the credit balance to the student is required. Please click on the link to download the Parent Plus authorization release form.
If a refund has been issued and new charges are later added, it is the responsibility of the student to make sure payment is made.
Chapman will report to the IRS required information about students who were billed for at least one credit hour in any semester of a tax year. 1098-T statements will be mailed by January 31st of the following year. If you were not billed tuition and fees for the preceding year, you will NOT receive a 1098-T. If you do not have a valid SSN or TIN on file, you will NOT receive a 1098-T.
If you did not receive a 1098-T but feel you should have one, please contact the Student Business Services Office at (714) 997-6617 or email email@example.com.
Most charges that a student incurs on campus will be reflected on the student account.
These charges include but are not limited to:
Fines owed to the Library or Film/TV Gold Room are charged to the tuition account if not paid to the respective department upon notice.
Please note that the bookstore is a separate entity. Therefore, charges for textbooks will not be applied to the student account.
A.W.G. Dewar Inc. offers students and parents a tuition insurance policy which would guarantee a refund of moneys paid to the university in the event that a student suffers a serious illness or accident and must withdraw from the university before the semester is completed. This elective plan covers tuition, fees and on campus housing. The cost is approximately 1% of the annual cost. You must apply for this coverage directly with A.W.G. Dewar Inc. prior to the first day of classes. Forms are available in the Business Office or DEWAR online.
Parking on city streets and in neighborhoods can result in a parking citation. If you do not have a vehicle, walk or use public transportation, you can apply for/renew a parking waiver by the end of the third week of the Fall semester. Log into parking service portal and select Vehicle Registration to complete the waiver request.
The date of withdrawal for purposes of tuition credit shall be the date on which the class was dropped through the Student Center or at the Registrar’s Office. Students who register, but do not attend classes, will not receive a tuition credit unless they officially withdraw by the posted deadlines. Tuition deposits are not refundable. Click here for the refund schedule. Students who receive federal financial aid are subject to a pro-rated return of federal funds if they withdraw before completing 60% of the semester. The return of federal funds may result in a balance owing to Chapman from the student.
The deadlines to drop a class (so that it doesn't’t appear on your transcript) and withdraw from a class are academic deadlines and do not affect the refund policy.
Commuter meal plans are purchased with the Cashier in the Bhathal Student Services Building using cash, check, credit card or money order, online by clicking the Commuter Meal Plan link or can be charged against student account credit balances. All commuter meal plans are non-refundable and expire at the end of the Spring semester each year.
The declining balance account is established by submitting payment to the Cashier’s Office, transferring funds from a credit balance on the student account or adding funds online through the eAccounts portal. The funds are accessed using your Chapman University student ID card and can be used in the Bookstore, for laundry, print credits, library fines and at on campus dining establishments. Declining balance accounts never expire and unused funds are refundable.
A collections hold means that you still have an unpaid balance with the University. Please contact our Collections Office for further assistance.
A collections hold will prevent your access to request registration, transcripts and diplomas. If any charges remain on your student account it will be forwarded to in house collection status with a restriction of a collection hold.
Contact the University Collections Office to make arrangements to pay the balance due, or discuss the collections hold, as follows:
You can view your student account at my.chapman.edu. A monthly eBill statement is available for viewing through your Student Center.
If you need assistance with logging into your Student Center, contact the Help Desk at (714) 997-6600.
Please keep in mind that if you are set-up on a Repayment Agreement with the collections office, the payment amount listed on your monthly eBill statement does not pertain to your agreement.
Please refer to your Repayment Agreement for your monthly payment amount and due date.
The University will allow you to establish a Repayment Agreement to make monthly payments.
Please contact our Collections Office for further assistance.
Once the balance is paid in full, the collections hold will be released at which time you may order transcripts, diploma and/or register for classes.
