Cost of Attendance vs. Tuition

Each year, our office will determine the estimated Cost of Attendance (COA) for all students attending Centenary College in compliance with federal regulations.

The COA for attending Centenary will include direct costs that students will be billed for such as tuition, fees, and room and board if the student is living on campus. The COA will also include “out-of-pocket” expenses including books, supplies, travel, off-campus living expenses, and miscellaneous.

The COA is not what you will be required to pay at Centenary College; rather it is the maximum amount of financial aid that a student can receive.

As you can see, depending on where a student is living and how many credits a student is taking, the COA can change. Full-time students living on campus can expect a COA of $45,716 of which $41,362 would be directly billed by Centenary. Full-time students living with their parent could expect a COA of $37,774 of which $30,942 would be directly billed by Centenary.

*Only applies to students who are at least half time.
