The following policy outlines the steps for students applying for need-based financial aid:

Students seeking need-based financial assistance at Centre must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA serves as an application and need-analysis document for federal and state financial aid funds (grants, loans, and student employment) as well as Centre’s own generous grant program.

In addition to filing the FAFSA, each applicant must submit the Centre Aid Form to our Financial Aid Office by March 1 for need-based institutional aid consideration. Also, a copy of the parents’ and student’s previous year’s federal income tax transcript may be requested as well as a verification worksheet.

Consideration for financial aid and scholarships is made after the student has officially been offered admission to the College. The College does not discriminate in either admission or financial assistance based upon race, sex, national or ethnic origin, age, creed or disability.

All aid applicants receive consideration for federal and state programs before the College provides additional aid from its own funds. Because each need-based award reflects the financial circumstances of the student’s family, strict confidentiality is maintained concerning financial awards.

Subject to the applicant’s annual eligibility status, it is our intent to continue aid to a student for the four-year undergraduate program at Centre. However, the grant, loan, and work dollar amounts of an individual’s aid package may vary from year to year depending on FAFSA data, the availability of funds, and Centre’s financial aid policies.

Prospective students interested in receiving an estimate of their financial aid award may utilize the Net Price Calculator located on the Centre website.
