Financial Aid for All

How it Works

The financial aid process begins by filling out the FAFSA after you have applied to Chowan.

FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Filling out the FAFSA determines how much aid you are eligible to receive.

You can find the FAFSA online at You will fill out the FAFSA each year you plan to enroll in school. You can begin filling out your FAFSA in December. Remember to include Chowan’s FAFSA code so that we receive a copy of your application.

Chowan’s FAFSA Code: 002916
