This agreement between Cedarville University and our high school/homeschool partners and the collaborative program it defines is based on a common interest in Christ-centered education. We share a mission and commitment to prepare students to become leaders who are equipped to influence critical elements of our society for Christ. It is recognized that the two institutions have unique strengths that, when combined, will extend the effectiveness and reach of both institutions.
This memorandum of understanding (MOU) replaces and nullifies any previous agreements related to instruction and articulation between the two institutions. The primary purpose of this memorandum is to provide a means whereby exceptional students can participate in the Dual Enrollment opportunities provided by Cedarville and enjoy access to quality, biblically based college courses while still in high school. This MOU provides a tuition scholarship and application fee waiver to qualified students from YOUR SCHOOL NAME who meet Cedarville’s admission standards.
Marketing and Communication to Students and Parents
Our partnering schools/ homeschool organizations encourage their students to participate in college-level course work while still enrolled in the high school program. It is agreed that they will include Cedarville’s Dual Enrollment program in promotional materials and events publicizing their dual enrollment opportunities. It is also agreed that partnering schools will promote opportunities for Cedarville’s Dual Enrollment courses in a manner at least consistent with those offered by other higher education institutions. Representatives from Cedarville will be invited to attend informational sessions for students and/or parents as they are conducted by YOUR SCHOOL NAME, and Cedarville will endeavor to have representation and promotional materials at those events.
Application and Admission
Admissions criteria and application instructions for Cedarville’s Dual Enrollment program are published at cedarville.edu/dualenrollment. Students with unweighted GPAs of 3.5 or higher should be encouraged to take the standardized tests required for admission well in advance of application deadlines for application.
Any student interested in Cedarville’s Dual Enrollment program should complete the online Dual Enrollment application and provide all required documents: church leader recommendation, high school transcript, and standardized test score.
The $30 application fee will be waived for all YOUR SCHOOL NAME students.
Scholarship and Fee Reductions
Students enrolled in Cedarville’s Dual Enrollment program are eligible for a $25 per credit hour tuition reduction for the program. This reduced tuition rate applies to accepted students beginning in the summer following their sophomore year in high school (the first term of eligibility for the program) and continuing through their high school graduation. Any courses taken following graduation would be priced at the rate set for degree-seeking freshmen at the time of enrolling in the class.
Admission to the University
Students wishing to attend Cedarville as degree-seeking freshmen may apply to the University using the abbreviated process identified on Cedarville’s website and generally receive priority consideration.
Eligibility and Continuation
All conditions for eligibility and admission are defined by the University and apply to Duel Enrollment students. A students’ ability to continue in the program is dependent on his or her continuing in good standing in the program as defined by Cedarville.
Each term as part of the registration process, students will be asked to sign a release allowing Cedarville to report grades for the term directly to their school. Because this memorandum is between institutions, failure of a student to provide that permission nullifies their eligibility for any scholarship provided. Such students may still be eligible to participate in Cedarville’s Dual Enrollment program. Grade reporting generally occurs within three weeks of the end of the academic term.
Schedules for academic terms at Cedarville and partnering schools may not coincide. All requirements for submission of assignments and completion of activities in a Cedarville course apply to participating YOUR SCHOOL NAME students even if these schedules conflict. Students should examine both schedules carefully to ensure they can meet all requirements for their courses at both institutions.
Termination of Agreement
The term of this MOU will be from the date of signature through July 31, 2014.This MOU may be renewed by mutual, written agreement of both parties. Either party may terminate the existing MOU in writing, giving 30 days’ advance notice of the proposed termination date. Any student already enrolled, maintaining eligibility, and receiving tuition reduction for the term in progress as of the termination date will be continued under the terms of this MOU for the remainder of that term.
