Schedule Your Visit

The Admissions Office will remain open during normal business hours.  

We are here to support you in any way we can. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at 252-398-6230 or Our office is working to develop opportunities for prospective students and their families to connect with the Chowan community, and we will share more details as they become available. We appreciate your flexibility as we prioritize the health of our campus community. For more information and ongoing updates about the University’s response to COVID-19, please visit

During these challenging times, we want to ensure that all qualified applicants have the opportunity to be considered for admission. In response to prior cancellation of SAT and ACT testing dates and the uncertainty of future dates, Chowan University will waive test requirements indefinitely. This means students are encouraged to submit test scores if they have them, but applications without test scores will be considered for admission. This is effective immediately and available to domestic and international students. Students must remember NCAA has its own guidelines for student-athletes to which they must adhere.
