Billing Notifications:

Failure to make on time payment may result in a late fee of $150 (for each deadline missed, maximum late fee charge $300), a hold on grades, transcripts and diploma, and a registration hold which will prevent any schedule changes and changes to residence hall room selection.  These consequences will also affect students who receive financial aid, but who fail to submit missing documentation requested by the Financial Aid Office by August 1, 2017.  Notification of a hold(s) will appear on the student’s my.Centenary account. Exceptions can only be granted by the Bursar’s Office prior to the payment deadline.

New students, will receive an initial paper bill for their first semester.  Subsequent bills will be available electronically (e-Bill) through the student’s my.Centenary account and clicking on the “Student Finance” box.

Returning students, who have registered by June 15, 2017 can view their e-Bill on June 16, 2017.  Returning students who register after June 15 will be able to view their e-Bills immediately after completing their registrations. To view a bill, the student must log into their my.Centenary account and click on the “Student Finance” box.

Students who will be residing on campus and have been assigned a room will see their Room & Meal Plan costs on the Account Activity screen.  Students who have indicated they will be residing on campus and do not see housing as part of their bill, should contact the Residence Life Office.

Email notifications will be sent to the student’s Centenary University email, prior to the due date, if there is still a balance due.  Monthly reminders will also be sent to the student’s email account until the balance has been paid.  Students should review their account activity periodically to confirm that a change or adjustment has not been made creating a balance due.

For instructions on how to access an e-Bill, please visit our E-Billing page.

Students using financial aid to pay all or a portion of their bill should review their awards online by signing into their my.Centenary account and clicking on the “Financial Aid” box.

If you have questions about how to meet your payment obligations, please speak with our Financial Aid staff at finaid@centenaryuniversity.edu

Important Note:
Returning students who will not be attending the fall semester must submit a Withdrawal/Leave of Absence form to the Student Life Office no later than August 29, 2017. New students who will not be attending the fall semester must submit a cancelation notification to the Admissions Office no later than August 29, 2017. Returning and new students who do not complete the proper forms by the deadline will be responsible for the costs of the semester, regardless of whether or not they attend any classes.  The following actions do not constitute appropriate notification of withdrawal or cancellation: non-payment of tuition & other charges, non-attendance in classes or notification to an instructor. A student who fails to withdraw or cancel officially waives the right for consideration of any refunds.
