* If you are an Undergraduate Traditional Full-time student enrolled in the monthly college payment plan through our Nelnet Campus Commerce partner, please note that payments will appear on your account within 5-7 days after you have made your payment to them.

As a Centenary student, you will be able to view your electronic bill (e-Bill) online.  Only you, the student, will have access to the e-Bill statement.  It will be your responsibility to check/maintain your Centenary e-mail account for billing notifications on a regular basis.

For your security and to maintain compliance with FERPA regulations, bill notifications and information will be sent only to your Centenary e-mail account.  If someone else is responsible for payment of your bill, it is your responsibility to print out a copy of your billing statement and give it to the responsible party.

Please remember:

  • Always store an electronic or hard copy of your e-Bill statement and retain for your records.  The Student billing system only shows current transactions, so if something has changed since you last looked at your billing ledger, the Billing Office will not be able to determine the change unless you have a copy of your prior statement.
  • Be sure to inform the person responsible for making payments on your account of any changes or if there is a balance due.  A  late payment fee will be added if payment is not received by the posted due date.
    • For a FT Undergraduate student, information regarding due dates and late payment fees for the Fall or Spring semester can be found here.
    • For PT Undergraduate, Traditional Graduate, and all Accelerated programs, information regarding late payment fees can be found in the appropriate Tuition and Fees section.
  • If you wish, you may request a paper copy of a billing statement.  Copies will only be mailed to the billing address on file.  One paper copy will be mailed per request.  Currently there is no opt-out option available for paperless billing.
  • You will receive periodic emails to your Centenary email to remind you to log in and review the transactions on your billing ledger.
