Chowan University does not charge out-of-state tuition.

Price vs. Cost

So how much does it "cost" to attend Chowan University?

The "price" for Chowan University for one year including tuition, room, board, and fees is approximately $32,080 (based on standard room, double occupancy, and a 19 meals-per-week plan). That makes the "price" approximately $16,040 per semester for tuition, room, board, and fees. The actual "cost" differs per student. The cost of books is not included in tuition, room, board, and fees.

Chowan University's Financial Aid department awards over $30 million in aid a year. Through the support of private gifts from alumni, businesses and friends, as well as endowment earnings, Chowan is able to charge tuition that is less than the actual cost of instruction.

Many students find that because of Chowan's financial assistance programs, we are as affordable as many state universities, while providing 1-on-1 academic and support services by caring faculty and staff in a Christian environment that makes student success a priority.

All costs are estimated and subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees.
