When you enroll in RVCC – Centenary Path to Transfer program, you’re considered a Centenary University student from your first year at community college. You’ll have access to the same academic and career services as Centenary students. In addition, a Centenary advisor will work with you to ensure that the RVCC courses that you’re completing will apply toward your Centenary University degree as well.

After your RVCC graduation, you’ll continue your studies at Centenary University to earn your bachelor’s degree. It’s a seamless transfer process with lots of benefits, including an additional scholarship.


Financial Benefits

You will receive a Path to Transfer scholarship that will reduce your tuition to $15,000 annually once your associate’s degree is conferred. In addition, you may also be eligible for the Recognition Scholarship for graduating with your associate degree at RVCC. You may receive federal or state grants based of FAFSA qualifications.

Students who attend only 1 semester in an academic year will be eligible for ½ of the annual amount.
