Chowan University’s Adult Degree Completion Program is designed for adults who have family, work, and other responsibilities and want to complete their Bachelor’s degree in the evening and online. The program is convenient for adult students who wish to attend college in a manner other than a traditional day program.

The Adult Degree Completion Program offers you…

  • Convenience. You will attend class only two nights per week at Halifax Community College just off of I-95 at Roanoke Rapids or in Murfreesboro at our main campus location. Some courses are taught online.
  • Financial Assistance. You will apply for federal and state financial aid programs. These programs help make your degree affordable. Plus, many employers offer tuition reimbursement. An Adult Degree Completion Program representation will help walk you through the financial aid assistance process.
  • Reputable degrees. Chowan University’s meets the same accreditation standards as Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Plus, Chowan University has been involved in Christian higher education since 1848.
  • Academic assistance. Our faculty is committed to ensure your success through academic readiness workshops.

You will complete your bachelor's degree in Social Science, a degree which allows enormous flexibility when entering the job market. Current ADCP students are pursuing their degrees with plans to enter law enforcement, social services, graduate school, or simply want the marketability of a bachelor’s degree.

You will take courses in criminal justice, psychology, sociology, history, politics, and other courses found in a liberal arts curriculum. A combination of these courses combined with courses in the major will equip you with marketable skills such as written and oral communication skills, effective speaking, critical thinking, and the ability to become a lifelong learner.

Classes are normally offered 2 nights per week for a full time student (Monday through Thursday). This format typically works for the working adult who cannot take classes in the daytime, but needs the individual attention and support found in a traditional classroom setting.

If this sounds like the opportunity for you, contact the Adult Degree Completion Program at 1-888-4-CHOWAN or

You may also schedule a one-to-one meeting with an ADCP representative.

"The Adult Degree Completion Program is very challenging to say the least. Trying to manage a home, children, work and school will take its toll. The staff at Chowan University has gone above and beyond to ease some of the stress that comes with this endeavor, and I look forward to receiving a second diploma from Chowan University (even if it is 20 years after the first!)"
