Chapman strives to be affordable for students who would be a great fit for the University. We offer merit aid, institutional awards, and need-based financial aid to students who qualify.Merit aid recognizes achievement in high school solely based on grades and test scores. Talent funding is available from specific academic departments either in the creative arts or sciences. Funding should not discourage you from learning more and applying! Reach out to your admission counselor if you have any hesitations or concerns.
Chapman provides campus tours for students and families. These tours are offered twice a day, Monday through Friday (except holidays). Campus tours are 90-minute walking tours around our Orange Campus and dorm areas led by a current student, followed by a 30-minute information session led by a member of the admission team that will cover the application process. To register, please visit http://www.chapman.edu/visit. In addition, we offers tours of the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, Musco Center for the Arts, and our Dance Center.
