Submit Your Final Transcripts
First-time freshmen transferring dual enrollment credits must submit an official college transcript by July 15th.
Final official college transcripts for transfer students are due September 15th.
Complete Your Health Information
Health Requirements — Students are expected to complete all health requirements electronically on the student health portal at least 2 weeks prior to their scheduled advising appointment.
Note: All students are automatically enrolled in the University Health Insurance Plan and are assessed a fee for the policy on their term bill (the coverage is for a one-year period). 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. Requests for insurance waiver must be received by the term due date. (08-08-2023) This is also the date the student’s bill is due. Missed deadlines will result in mandatory participation in the University’s Student Health Insurance Plan and may also be subject to late payment fees.
Review Your Bill & Submit Payment
Students should check their bills and financial aid online regularly. Fall bills will be emailed to your Centenary email when they are available for viewing.
