  • Transfer Student!
  • Apr-17-2014 I am a past student here

    Now that I am transferring, it is extremely impossible - I have lost nearly two years of schooling thanks to the way the school's classes are accredited. Also, the registrar's office can't get it together to get my transcripts and other forms out to other schools. Many college counselors that I have spoken to are telling me part of the reason I am having a hard time transferring is because of the school's poor reputation.

    Expensive college. Depending on your major, where your living and what not.

    The school is pretty pricey but the majority of students receive some financial aid. It is worth the price though because you learn so much in the classes, and there are always tons of free events on campus to keep you entertained.

    Centenary College is expensive, with tuition upwards of $35,000+ a year. If you're not on financial aid, it can be rough. However, Centenary has superb financial aid; many students say that their financial aid package from Centenary was by far the best of their offers. If you're looking for an intellectual, social, and laid-back, small community, I believe that Centenary is one of the best college's out there. I find the price is very worth it.
