Invest in Your Future

Student Finance

At Chamberlain, we recognize that your education is a significant investment. More than 80 percent of Chamberlain students receive some form of financial aid. Financial aid is available in the form of federal and private loans, scholarships, grants and work-study to those who qualify. At Chamberlain, we actively work to keep costs down while maintaining the highest educational standards. We will do everything we can to help you earn your degree, including helping you identify all your financing options and helping you apply for financial assistance.

Student Payment Options

If you need financing options, Chamberlain has payment plans available. Students whose financial aid fully covers their costs, or who pay their entire non-covered balance on the first due date of the session, do not need to enroll in a plan.

Once you have enrolled in a plan, that enrollment will be carried forward into all consecutive future sessions that a plan is needed. Notify your student finance advisor if you wish to disenroll from a payment plan.

Standard Plan

  • Make two installment payments
  • For students who are not using financial aid or outside funding and want to make monthly payments, or are using outside aid but want to make monthly payments to resolve any non-covered balance

Deferred, Direct & Extended Payment Plans

  • Available to students providing proof of reimbursement or who have exceptional circumstances
