+-How much is tuition?
+-Is it possible to have a personal interview with an admission counselor?
Chapman does offer interviews with "Admission Fellows" and occasionally regional interviews for those who cannot make it to campus for a Fellows interview. Generally speaking, however, the demand for personal interviews far exceeds the abilities of the admission staff. The best opportunity for "face time" with admission counselors exists at our daily Information Sessions. These presentations give students and their families an opportunity to ask questions directly to one of our officers. The Admission staff highly values speaking individually with students whenever possible and encourages students to contact their counselor should they have special questions or circumstances to discuss.
Transfer students may set up an advising appointment if necessary to discuss their academic progress.
