Health Insurance

Health insurance is optional for all graduate students (except international and certain health science students). The deadline to enroll into the University health insurance plan is no later than the third week of each term.

For international and certain health science students, the mandatory health insurance may be waived by providing proof of health insurance coverage no later than the third week of each term.

Graduate students must possess health insurance in order to enroll in the student health center service fee.

Students can visit the Business Office website at www.chapman.edu/sbs for further information on the University student health insurance and student health center fee.

Tuition Protection Plan (optional)

The plan can guarantee a refund of monies paid to the University in the event that the student suffers a serious illness or accident and must withdraw from the University before the semester/trimester is completed, but after the established withdrawal dates for tuition credit referenced in this section. This elective plan provides coverage for tuition, fees and room and board charges*. No exceptions will be made to the tuition credit (withdrawal) policy for students/parents who elect not to purchase this coverage. For further information, please refer to www.chapman.edu.

*This plan must be purchased prior to the first day of the semester.

Add/Drop/Withdrawal - Financial Aid

Dropping below full-time or part-time status may affect any financial aid that has been awarded and may result in a balance due to the University. Please refer to the Financial Aid Office.

Specific procedures for adding or dropping a class must be followed as specified in academic policies and procedures.

A petition to withdraw from the University or drop classes after tuition credit deadlines does not reduce the student's financial obligation to the University.

Please note that the dates to withdraw or drop classes for tuition credit differ from those to withdraw or drop classes for academic purposes.

Whether any refund will result from the tuition credit received depends on the payments that have been made.

Failure to attend class or merely giving notice to an instructor will not be regarded as official notice of drop/add or withdrawal.

*Students choosing to remain enrolled past the last day to drop with refund are obligated to cover all tuition, fees, room and board charges incurred in accordance with the refund policy for tuition, room and board charges.
