    Hackettstown — Centenary College has launched its Displaced Worker Discount Program to provide the opportunity for educational development at a reasonable cost. The program allows for individuals who enroll in one of Centenary’s adult accelerated programs to receive their second course for free. Enrollment in Centenary’s Adult and Professional Studies (CAPS) Program will allow people to earn either their undergraduate (AA or BS) degree in business or their Master of Business Administration degree. People who do not live near one of Centenary’s three campus locations can opt to take the discounted program online, as well. Individuals who are eligible for this program need to meet Centenary’s regular admission criteria and apply by April 15 in order to receive the discount. Centenary staff will counsel potential students on the availability of federal financial aid as a means for paying for the remaining costs. “Many people are suffering from a job loss and want to explore the option of going back to college,” said Dr. Barbara-Jayne Lewthwaite, Centenary’s acting president. “We put this program in place to make furthering education more affordable in these difficult economic times.” For more information, visit www.centenarycollege.edu/change? or call 866-753-2788.
