Staying connected is an important part of being a Cedarville student. A lot of information is communicated to students about academics, residence life, job and internship opportunities, and more.
With this Checkpoint, we’re pleased to connect you with your own Cedarville email account. We use the Google platform for email, calendars, and apps. So if you’re familiar with Google as a search engine or have a personal Gmail account, we think you’ll like what Cedarville’s Google Apps has to offer.
We also want to introduce you to additional online resources for students. Take some time and see what’s available before you arrive this August. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
- Google Apps
Your Cedarville student email account became active on June 15. You can visit cedarville.edu/google and log in using the same username/password you have been using across Cedarville's website.
Note: Beginning June 1, all e-communication from Cedarville will be sent to your Cedarville email address rather than your home or personal address. Please check this account regularly and make your parents aware of important information that arrives before you arrive in August.
- CU Classifieds
Think Cedarville's version of Cragislist. This online classified listing is a great resource for the Cedarville campus community.
CedarInfo is a powerful web-based resource that provides access to information and allows you to conduct business at Cedarville. Access CedarInfo through the student homepage or visit cedarville.edu/cedarinfo. Type in your username and password and log in. Before using CedarInfo network resources, please read the Acceptable Use Policy for CedarNet. Use of CedarInfo's network of computing resources implies your agreement to these policies.
- Parent Access to CedarInfo
Due to federal regulations (FERPA), you must grant parental access permission before parents can access your records through CedarInfo. This only gives parents access to financial and academic records. Parents cannot access your email. Parents also need their own username and password and are not to use your login information.
Campus Network (CedarNet) Resources
Cedarville University is known nationally as a leader in campus computer networking and instructional technology, providing networked computers all across campus. CedarNet is managed by Information Technology (IT).
- Self-Provided Computers
Many students bring their own laptop, desktop computer, personal printer, or tablet device to campus. These self-provided computers (SPC) can access email, network drives, and the Internet, but cannot run other University-licensed software (e.g. Autocad, Photoshop, Microsoft Office, etc.). We support both Mac and PC systems. Read more information about how to prepare your SPC.
- Computer Request for Residence Hall
For students not bringing a SPC, you have the option to request a University-provided computer for your residence hall room. We also provide University-owned computers and black-and-white laser printers in the computer lab. In order to guarantee receipt of a computer by the beginning of fall term, requests must be submitted before July 22, 2013.
- Help Pages
IT provides help pages about University computers and licensed software, student provided computers, the campus network, troubleshooting, and more. These pages are updated regularly with new content, provide helpful hints, and allow you to provide feedback.
- Wi-Fi and Network Access
Cedarville University has an enterprise-level connection to the Internet currently running at 190 megabits per second. All students benefit from 24-hour access to the network on campus. Each residence hall room has two 100Mbps network connections for use with an SPC or the optional University-provided computer. Wi-Fi access (802.11n) is also is available inside and outside all across campus.
- Wireless Printing
Cedarville’s wireless printing service, called CedarPrint, will allow you to print from a laptop or residence hall computer to a printer via on-campus print stations.
