Tuition costs differ between programs. Students in the School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science (SETAS) tend to have higher tuition fees, due to the nature of their programs, having labs and special equipment for hands-on training. However, there are scholarships open only specifically to SETAS students to subsidize their school expenses.

The college has two types of scholarships. Students are required to complete a scholarship and bursary questionnaire in myCentennial to access and qualify for the application-based scholarships. The other type of scholarship is academic-based, which does not include an application form. Below are some of the top scholarships offered:
