New students to Centenary should apply for aid at the same time as they apply for admission. Your financial aid application will in no way jeopardize your chances of admission. Complete your FAFSA while you are applying for admission to make the financial aid process quicker. Also, be sure to put your Social Security number on your admission application so that we can match it to your FAFSA.
Current students should complete their FAFSA and submit any additional information each year no later than April 1st. If you complete your financial aid after April 1st, we will award you on a funds-available basis.
New Jersey Residents
New Jersey residents may be eligible for grants and scholarships from the New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA). Your FAFSA will automatically be submitted to HESAA, but HESAA may require additional information to determine if you are eligible. Log on to https://njfams.hesaa.org to check your eligibility.
You will automatically be awarded any Federal Subsidized or Unsubsidized loan for which are eligible once we receive your FAFSA. Check your financial aid online to see your federal student loans.
Parents can apply for a Parent PLUS loan online at www.studentloans.gov. Parents should log in with their FSA ID, not the student’s FSA ID.
Students can apply for alternative/private loans. Most students will need a co-signer for these credit-based loans. Check out our Private Loans webpage for more information
