Once you have been admitted, the Financial Aid Office will award any federal, state, and Centenary grants based on your FAFSA. You should complete your FAFSA at the same time as you apply for admission. If you have already completed your FAFSA, you can add Centenary’s school code of 002599 by making a correction online at fafsa.gov. Remember to complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA for Spring 2020 aid and to complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA for Fall 2020/Spring 2021 aid.
