2024-2025 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.  Centenary students receive a variety of scholarships and financial aid that often greatly reduces their total direct costs. 


Tuition - $41,200 per year

Hours taken above or below the 12-22* credit hour range during a fall or spring term will be charged $1717/hr.

UG Cost of Attendance (COA)

The cost of attendance (COA) is the cornerstone of establishing a student’s
financial need, as it sets a limit on the total aid that a student may receive for purposes of the TEACH Grant, Campus-Based Programs, and Direct/Direct PLUS Loans, and is one of the basic components of the Pell Grant calculation.  The cost of attendance for a student is an estimate of that student’s educational expenses for the period of enrollment.  It includes direct as well as indirect costs that a student will incur during an academic year.
