Financial Planning

We help develop a personalized financial plan for every student at Centura. Investing in the right education now pays higher dividends when you start your new career. To assist you in making the cost of attending Centura affordable, we offer assistance as you plan to begin your academic career. All prospective students talk with one of our Financial Aid Advisors to develop a financial plan, discuss qualifications and obtain any necessary applications.

Centura is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a proprietary institution of higher education for the purpose of student participation in federal grant and loan programs.
