Cedarville University is committed to affordability!

Along with competitive costs well below the national average for private colleges, Cedarville provides a wide range of financial aid options to assist students and families. Last year, 98 percent of new freshmen received financial aid. The average package was $17,526, which included scholarships, grants, student loans, and federal work study.

Academic scholarships now range from $4,000 all the way up to $12,000 per year for four years. These generous awards can be combined with need-based grants, academic program scholarships (for music and pharmacy students, for example), athletic scholarships, and other forms of aid.
