Accessibility Services & The Learning Center

Chowan University's Accessibility Services and the Learning Center are here to provide support services for any student who has a documented disability or other health concern because we want you to know that the University has faith in your future. Chowan will maintain a mutual respect and courtesy for all our students, regardless of their disabilities or health concerns, and Chowan will always strive to educate all those who seek a better future. 

The mission of Accessibility Services and the Learning Center is to provide equal access opportunities, including the establishment and coordination of reasonable academic accommodations to qualified students with disabilities and/or health concerns in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Accessibility Services and the Learning Center exercise a good faith effort to coordinate reasonable accommodations to enable students to maximize their educational potential, develop academically and socially and ultimately become Chowan University alumni.

Accessibility Services and the Learning Center provide equal access opportunities and disability support services to students who have documented disabilities and health concerns. These include, but are not limited to, the establishment and coordination of academic accommodations, auxiliary aids, and programs to qualified students with disabilities. Our goal is to provide workable solutions so that students can learn and achieve in an inclusive and caring environment.

Chowan encourages prospective students with disabilities or other health concerns to contact Accessibility Services and the Learning Center as early in the admissions process as possible. Contact Mrs. Debbie Hinton, Accessibility Services Coordinator, with additional questions or for assistance with this service.
