Apply for Financial Aid

Chowan helps parents and students with financial planning. Understanding what the costs are, including tuition and fees, room expenses, and books can be confusing. We are here to help you.

Chowan can provide individual access and assistance for all students to afford the education they deserve.

Scholarships, grants, loans, payment plans, and part-time employment in our work-study programs make it affordable. (You can receive up to 6-years of financial assistance!)

Live outside of NC? No problem. Out-of-state residents do not pay out-of-state tuition!
