Welcome International Students. Thank you for your interest in Centenary University. Centenary is a four-year, career oriented liberal arts university, and is fully accredited by the Middle States Commission of Higher Education. The University has a long history of educating international students and our international students have gone on to great success in their professional and personal lives.

The University highly values the global perspectives that our international students bring to the campus, and you will find our faculty, staff and student body very welcoming to our international population, creating a very warm and comfortable environment in which to study and experience America. Centenary is large enough to provide you a high quality education and cultural experience, yet small enough to provide you with personal care and attention.

The School of International Programs is a full service office where our staff has time to get to know our international students. All of the staff members are dedicated to seeing to the success of our students, and are always available to answer any questions you may have and to assist you with all or your needs. ESL classes are offered based on individual needs, and ESL tutoring and support is provided for the entire time at Centenary.

As a freshman or transfer applicant you will find the forms needed to apply on our website. You will also find links and information about our many academic programs, campus and student organization information, and the student visa application process.

I hope that you will choose to come to Centenary, and I am confident that you will find it to be a most rewarding experience. I invite you to contact me or any member of our staff to further discuss opportunities at Centenary University.
