»Billing for Study Abroad

While abroad, students remain enrolled at Chapman University and pay their regular Chapman tuition, room and (sometimes) board through the Chapman University Business Office. There is also a $500 study abroad fee (waived in Fall semester only).

  • All program charges (except items such as application fees, optional meal plans, and optional excursions) are billed to Chapman, and therefore any fees noted in individual program catalogs are not relevant to your student.  Chapman fees include many services provided by the host program or institution, such as comprehensive health insurance, in-country orientation, cultural activities, field trips, etc.
  • Students are held to the program provider/host institution's refund policies, which are outlined on the program provider/host institutions' website.
  • Airfare (for most programs), housing deposits, baggage insurance, administrative fees, textbooks, course fees, passport fees, visa fees and personal expenses are the responsibility of the student.
  • Study Abroad Budget Worksheets are available to help you and your student plan the cost of a semester abroad.
  • Students and families can also download the Ultimate Student Guide to Financing Your Life Abroad to learn how to budget and save up for study abroad, using forms of payment while abroad, handling money emergencies and scams abroad, and budgeting for cell phone use abroad.

+-Financial Aid

Because students remain enrolled at Chapman while abroad and are paying Chapman fees, Financial Aid can be applied to the program and is processed internally. However, programs have two classifications as to which type of aid can be applied:

  • All Current Aid Programs: Chapman students can utilize their entire financial aid package, including federal, state, and institutional funding (with the exception of work/study, tuition exchange funds, tuition discount funds, and Chapter 33 VA Bill).
  • Federal/State Aid Only Programs: Chapman students can utilize only their federal and state financial aid to the program (with the exception of work/study, tuition exchange funds, tuition discount funds, and Chapter 33 VA Bill). Students can use federal/state aid toward all semester and academic year programs.  If a student receives Chapman aid and participates on a Federal/State Aid Only Program, Chapman aid is re-instated the semester they return to Chapman.
  • Students are welcome to apply for study abroad scholarships outside of Chapman.
  • If a student receives an outside scholarship, they must work directly with the scholarship provider directly for the timing and payment method. Note that the scholarship cannot be sent to Chapman and applied toward the Chapman bill.
