Chapman University offers institutional awards for students to help pay for the cost of education. These awards are based on the information you and your family provide, the number of applicants, and the total funds available. Institutional aid, unlike a loan, is not required to be repaid.
Merit scholarships recognize achievement in high school and are based on grades and test scores. New transfer students are awarded based on their previous college GPA. Scholarships range in amount, but can be as high as $32,000 per year.
These awards are provided by the Office of Admissions. If applying for admission by the deadline, students are automatically considered for these awards. If awarded, merit scholarship information will be included with your offer of admission.
Merit scholarships are awarded for eight semesters to new freshmen students. The scholarship time limit for transfer students varies depending at which grade level the student enrolls. It is calculated by subtracting the grade level of the student at the time of enrollment from the total allotted semesters for new freshmen students.
All students awarded merit scholarships must maintain a minimum 2.75 cumulative Chapman GPA in order to retain their scholarships. Students must enroll in a semester at least once every two years to retain their scholarships.
