Chowan Announces Second Year of No Tuition Increase

Following a vote by the Board of Trustees, tuition rates will not increase for the 2022-2023 academic year.  Chowan University students will pay the same tuition rate as they did in the 2020-2021 academic year.  “This is the second year in a row that the Chowan University Board of Trustees has approved the recommendation of no tuition increase,” shared President Kirk Peterson.  “Our University leadership is committed to making a Christian higher education experience affordable for students and their families, and we are grateful for the Board’s support in this effort.” This decision follows Chowan’s historical pattern of having a notably low percent increase in tuition as it has maintained one of the lowest percentage increases in tuition among the North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (NCICU) institutions for a number of years. 

While the University continues to maintain its tuition rates for students, it continues to grow its program offerings for students. In the past year, Chowan has added two degrees in Mass Communications (Communications Studies and Sports Media). In addition, two new graduate degrees were added: Master of Organizational Leadership and Master of Arts in Teaching with two specializations: 1) Elementary Education and 2) Secondary Education (Social Studies, Mathematics, English, and Comprehensive Science).
