+ - Tuition and Fee Master Payment Contract- Required

Chapman University requires that all students who enroll in classes complete a Tuition and Fee Master Payment Contract. This contract informs the student and/or responsible party of their rights and responsibilities regarding payment of tuition and fees and is valid until all charges due are paid in full.

The Payment Contract informs the University who is responsible for payment of tuition and fees. It also provides the student with important information regarding University Records, Payment Options, Late Fees, Tuition Refund Policy, Chapman University email address, Change of status and Account Statement.

Failure to complete and turn in the Tuition and Fee Master Payment Contract to the Business Office will result in a Business Office Hold and may result in withdrawal from classes.
