summer billFace-to-face services now available by appointment

After months of online-only services to students and prospective students, Centralia College is now offering face-to-face options for advising, admissions, financial aid, testing, TRIO, Blazer Central, and disability services.

“We’re really excited to get back to seeing students in person again,” said Robert Cox, vice president of Student Services. “We’ve been able to do amazing things virtually and online, but nothing replaces the face-to-face connection. It’s great to be able to get students back even if it is somewhat limited now.”
