The Chowan University community is committed to serving average students. By “average” we mean students with a GPA from 2.25-3.25 and “average” SAT scores (around 1300 for the three- part SAT). Students below these criteria may be admitted if they show a commitment to the Chowan University experience and academic potential. We strongly encourage all students and their families to visit campus throughout the admissions process. Many of our students are first generation college students which means their parents did not attend college or complete a college degree. Because of Chowan’s commitment to individual attention in a Christian environment, these students thrive here.
