The Learning Center

Chowan University's Learning Center is here to provide support services for any student that has a documented disability 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, disabilities or not, and Chowan will always strive to educate all those who seek a better future. 

The mission of The Learning Center is to provide equal access opportunities, including the establishment and coordination of reasonable academic accommodations to qualified students with disabilities in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The Learning Center exercises a good faith effort to coordinate reasonable accommodations to enable students with disabilities to maximize their educational potential.

The Learning Center provides equal access opportunities and disability support services to students who have documented disabilities. These include, but are not limited to, the establishment and coordination of academic accommodations, auxiliary aids, and programs to qualified students with disabilities. 

Chowan encourages prospective students with disabilities to contact The Learning Center as early in the admissions process as possible. Contact Samantha Pulliam, Disability Services Coordinator, with additional questions or for assistance with this service.
