Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
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.
Nicole from Hillsborough, NJ
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.
