Many families discover that a Centenary education is affordable because of financial aid. A college education is one of the largest investments a student will make – and the investment now will bring the greatest rewards in terms of professional opportunity, income potential and personal satisfaction.

It is important to apply for admission and financial aid early, as Centenary offers a limited amount of funding each year on a first-come, first-serve basis.  We request that you submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after January 1, 2015. Our priority deadline is February 15, 2015.  Financial aid will be processed on a rolling basis after that.  We understand that you may not have your 2014 Federal Income Tax returns in early 2015.  If this is the case, please estimate our information on the FAFSA using your prior year’s tax returns.  Once your taxes are completed, you can update your FAFSA.

Complete your FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov. Be sure to include Centenary’s federal school code: 002599.
