March 16, 2020: Notice Concerning Online Instruction
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has issued an executive order (104) directing all institutions of higher learning to cease in-person instruction until further notice. As a result, Centenary University has made the following decisions:
- All classes will move to online instruction for the remainder of the semester.
- All public events will be cancelled until further notice and events such as Academic Symposium, Leadership Awards, Commencement, etc., will be considered on a case by case basis.
- University offices will continue to remain open.
- We urge our campus community to continue to practice social distancing, as recommended by national health experts, to slow disease transmission.
Centenary will follow the ongoing guidance issued by Governor Murphy, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the New Jersey Department of Health.

Centenary University continues to follow guidance on intercollegiate athletics from the Colonial States Athletics Conference (CSAC) and the NCAA. Effective Friday, March 13th, the CSAC has cancelled all competition through Friday, April 3rd. In addition, the NCAA has cancelled all tournament play for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year.
As a result of these decisions, Centenary University has suspended all intercollegiate practices and competitions through Friday, April 3rd. We remain in close contact with the CSAC and NCAA on this evolving situation and will reevaluate as new guidance is issued. We’re very proud of our student-athletes, and we know they will meet this challenge.
