New Student Orientation

Congratulations and welcome to Centre!

We can’t wait to see you on campus. Use this page to learn more about what you need to do over the summer to prepare to start at Centre in August. 


Incoming students are assigned a Centre email address. Please use that address to access CentreNet (the College intranet for students, faculty, and staff). You may access email, billing, and important information about orientation both before and after you arrive on campus.

This is how we will communicate with you from now on so get used to checking from time to time.
