Centenary University Alert

Centenary University Alert: Centenary University will move to online instruction for the remainder of the semester, per executive order by NJ Gov. Murphy.

Advising Days for incoming Freshmen for Fall 2019 will be held May 14-18, 20-23, 28-29; June 19 and July 24

Advising Days give first year students the opportunity to come to campus for an individual appointment to meet with faculty and staff that they will be working with in the future, discuss their academic goals, and create a class schedule for their first semester.


  1. Your Centenary user name and password! Please be sure that your new Centenary account is active and that you have enrolled in the password reset tool and set up your permanent password prior to May 14th. A step-by-step instruction cheat sheet can be accessed here. If you have trouble completing these steps, the Help Desk is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at ext. 2000 to assist you!
  2. Schedule a math placement exam, if you are a Science, Education Biology, Equine Science or Animal Health major.  Math placement exams will be given at 10AM on May 16, 21, 23, and 28. It is recommended that you schedule your advising appointment at 1PM the same day. Appointments are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. You must contact Jill Gerlach on 908-852-1400, ext. 2168 to schedule both appointments.
  3. Submit a riding video prior to April 15, 2019 if you are an Equine major, or a non-major wanting to take a riding class. Our staff cannot meet with you if a video has not been submitted and a riding placement issued by the Equine Department — no exceptions!

Students are expected to complete all health requirements electronically on the student health portal (https://centenary.studenthealthportal.com) prior to their scheduled advising appointment.

Sign in to the portal using your assigned Centenary username and password. Click on “Pending Forms” in the upper left corner to complete forms.

Please note that all students are automatically enrolled in the University Health Insurance Plan, and are assessed a fee for the policy on their term bill (annual fee is $2,284).  Students who are covered under private insurance, may opt to decline this insurance coverage and waive this fee by completing the Insurance Waiver Form by the designated deadline.

At your advising appointment, health services staff will meet with you to confirm that all your health requirements have been met.

Please bring a copy of your health insurance card and official vaccination record to your advising appointment.

Schedule an Appointment

The Advising Day visit to campus provides new students with an opportunity to have an individual appointment for advising and visit any other office on campus where you may need personal answers to matters related to housing, health, financial aid or billing, or the Disability Services Office. Please note that all University offices, except for the Academic Success and Advising Center, will be closed on Saturday, May 18th and limited resources will be available. Please arrive on campus and check in 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.


You may schedule your appointment with any of the available advisors -- they work across all disciplines and can assist with scheduling, no matter what your major. Please be sure to provide your first and last name when scheduling your appointment.
