Message from the Centenary Admission Team
Tuesday, March 17, 2020
Campus looks and feels different today than it normally would on a day in mid-March. The College has suspended classes this week in preparation for resuming remote instruction on Monday, March 23. Many students chose to return to their homes, but the residence halls remain open and campus services such as the dining hall, library, and computer labs are open and available to students who chose to stay on campus. The College has hired additional cleaning staff and offered enhanced training for current staff to ensure that the campus is clean and safe for our entire community. Our dedicated faculty and staff are working extra hours to ensure that our students can continue their college journey in an unprecedented and wholly unexpected way.
You can keep up with Centenary’s response to COVID-19 at centenary.edu/covid19.
Here are some quick answers to questions that we know you probably have as you deal with the uncertainty of college searching in the age of COVID-19:
- Centenary is still accepting applications and there is merit and need-based aid available for new applicants, so send us your app!
- Our preferred deposit deadline will be extended from May 1 to June 1.
- We will accept additional ACT scores through the June ACT.
- If you would like to set up a Skype or FaceTime appointment with a faculty member or Student Ambassador, please contact your admission counselor.
- We will offer the $2,500 campus visit scholarship for virtual visits, whether or not you have already applied to Centenary. Talk to your admission counselor for details!
- The College is still assessing the Centenary in Paris program and will make a decision based on our students’ safety at a later date. We will communicate updates to all of our prospective students as they are available.
We know that you are likely wondering about many other things, so please reach out to our admission team with any and all questions as we navigate this “new normal” together. We are very #CentenaryProud of the way our entire campus community has responded to this situation and hope to include you as a part of it next year.
