Cost of Attendance

A Centre education is more affordable than you think—most students do not pay the full “sticker price.”

Cost of Attendance 2024-2025 Annual

Student Fee$300







At Centre though, more than 90% of the students don’t pay this much. Centre will award over $47 million in scholarships and grants this year. Your out-of-pocket expenses are what we call the “cost after aid” — this cost will vary based on the amount of financial aid you are offered. Included in tuition, housing, and food is access to physical and mental health care at Centre’s Student Health & Counseling center. In addition, we estimate the average domestic student will spend about $4,090 for related expenses, such as books, transportation, and personal expenses, whereas international students can expect $5,740 in similar expenses including international student health insurance. The Student Fee helps to cover the rich co-curricular programs, services, performance, recreational activities and other events throughout the term which benefit students and complement our faculty-led instruction.
