How does Chaminade support your student's development?

We understand the commitment your family makes when choosing a college for your student. At Chaminade, we are just as committed to your student's success. A quality private education at Chaminade means a four-year graduation guarantee, smaller class sizes, and an accessible faculty. In addition, it means that your student will be able to broaden her college experience through career preparation, community service, and study abroad opportunities. Whatever your student's academic and career goals, we are committed to helping her achieve them.

Affording a Private Education


Cost of Attendance vs. Actual Cost of Attendance

The actual cost of attendance will depend on your student's goals and needs while at Chaminade. It will also depend on your student's financial aid package and scholarships. Use our cost of attendance budgets to estimate your student's actual cost of attendance. These budgets are only estimates and are prepared prior to financial aid being taken into account.

Four-year Graduation Guarantee

The purpose of the four-year graduation guarantee is to facilitate a student's goal to graduate in four years (or less) with a Bachelor's degree through an agreement with Chaminade University. Proper planning and academic guidance will save your student time and money. Learn more.

Financial Aid

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Submit your student's FAFSA by the end of February to qualify for federal aid the following year. Aid packages are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so it's important to submit your application early. Detailed information on the FAFSA, the application process, and its deadline can be found on the FAFSA website.

Once the FAFSA has been submitted, your student may be eligible for a number of grant, scholarship, and work-study opportunities. Get a better idea of the different types of available federal aid here.
