2019-2020 Undergraduate Costs

Centenary's tuition and mandatory fees are combined into one transparent price. This flat rate includes innovative hybrid semesters which incorporate August and May immersion terms (including the Centenary in Paris experience for all incoming freshmen), and an opportunity to earn up to 40 hours of coursework per year at no additional cost. This enables students to spend more time on opportunities like global study, original research, or co-curricular involvement and still graduate in four years.

 All Centenary students are required to live on campus and purchase a meal plan.

Tuition - $37,310 per year

Hours taken above or below the 12-22* credit hour range during a fall or spring term will be charged $1554/hr.
