Cedarville's Getting Started program assists new students and their parents in their adjustments to campus life and acquaints them with the academic responsibilities and opportunities for involvement. Students and staff will greet you, direct you to where you need to go, and respond to any questions you may have. New students are expected to attend the Getting Started session. A detailed schedule of orientation sessions for parents and new students will be mailed to all new students in mid-November.

We provide transportation to and from Dayton International Airport. To schedule your transportation, you must contact the Admissions Guest Relations Office at 1-800-CEDARVILLE (233-2784) after Monday, November 30 and before Friday, December 18, to give them time to make the necessary arrangements. When you call, please have your arrival date, arrival time, and flight number available. The following fee applies:

Single Student: $50 per student
2 or more students: $35 per student

Full payment is due to Guest Relations upon arrival at campus. No refunds are given after the shuttle schedule has been confirmed. The Guest Relations Office cannot guarantee transportation and may have to make schedule adjustments due to driver availability and/or weather conditions.

This year more than 500 students will commute to campus. This includes married students, non-traditional students, students who live close enough to campus to commute from home, and approximately 200 students who have permission to move off campus. We provide a variety of services to help off-campus students take full advantage of the Cedarville experience. If you are a commuter student, please plan to attend the new student orientation meeting.
