|Application deadline coming up
RELEASED: Dec. 9, 2004
DANVILLE, KYThe deadline is fast approaching. Prospective students who want to become members of the Centre College class of 2009 must have their applications completed and postmarked by Feb. 1.
Seniors can complete the two-part paper application and submit by mail, or can apply online (with no fee) by visiting http://www.centre.edu/web/admission/howtoapply.html.
Financial aid applications are due Feb. 15. See http://www.centre.edu/web/admission/financial/ for more information. More than 80 percent of Centre students receive financial assistance: nearly 60 percent receive need-based financial aid, and more than half receive merit-based scholarships.
Timely applicants will receive notification of their acceptance to the College by March 15.
This year Centre expects to receive nearly 2,000 applications for a freshman class of approximately 310 students. High school juniors interested in attending the College should mark Feb. 26 and April 30 on their calendars. Centre holds Junior Day Open Houses on those dates. Prospective students and their parents can tour the campus and attend informative sessions about choosing a college, the application process, financing a Centre education, and a day in the life of a college student. "We hope that hosting two Junior Days will provide many students with a good start to their college search, says Susan Johnston, Associate Director of Admission. The sessions are not merely Centre-specific, but address broader issues of choosing and applying to colleges.
Diversity Days will be held February 10-12. The College welcomes all prospective students who have identified themselves as minorities to campus for an enhanced visit. Centre also invites students who have a general interest in diversity issues to participate.
For more information on Junior Day, call (800) 423-6236 or e-mail email@example.com. Students can register online at http://www.centre.edu/web/admission/openhouse.html.
