Chowan University is a school of approximately 1200 undergraduates of diverse backgrounds from across the US and around the world. Chowan is affordable, has small class sizes, abundant resources and individualized attention. Our caring faculty teach their own classes and treat you as a name, not a number. Earn a Bachelor’s degree as a traditional student in a supportive atmosphere with faculty who provide a liberal arts education that challenges the whole student.

Chowan University is known for having “faith in your future.” Much more than a tagline, our mission is to provide an education that transforms ordinary students into extraordinary graduates. We do this in good faith, trusting God in the person of Jesus Christ, with optimism for each student’s success. Our faculty come to Chowan to teach, advise, and engage students in the classroom, on the fields and courts of competition, and throughout extra-curricular activities. Faith in action underscores all that we do. It is not enough to teach students how or what to think; we teach students how to live with honor and conscience using their head, heart, and hands.

In an effort to admit students who fit Chowan University, every application is reviewed on an individual basis with emphasis on the applicant’s high school grade point average, high school class rank, course curriculum, SAT 1, CLT, and/or ACT score(s), and extracurricular activities, including community service and church involvement. Recommendations and essays are not required but are welcomed.

Many of our students are first-generation college students, which means their parents did not attend college or complete a college degree. Because of Chowan’s commitment to individual attention in a Christian environment, these, and all students thrive at Chowan University. Students will have a personal admissions counselor to assist in navigating each step of the admissions process, including scholarships, financial aid, housing, and class registration.

When you choose Chowan, you choose to live on our beautiful, diverse, supportive campus. You choose a place where you can thrive, confident that you are surrounded by faculty and staff that recognize your potential and genuinely care about your success. You choose opportunity. You choose family. You choose faith. You choose a vibrant future.
