Financial Aid Terms and Conditions

A student must be enrolled full-time (at least 12 or more credits for undergraduate students) to receive institutional financial aid. Institutional aid is not prorated for part-time students.  

Scholarships are awarded fall and spring terms only.  

Renewable scholarships – assuming renewal criteria are met – are available for up to eight (8) semesters of attendance, or through the completion of the first professional year of the Pharm.D. program (whichever comes first). 

Students enrolled in a Master’s level program are ineligible to receive undergraduate institutional aid.  

Cedarville University seeks be a careful steward of institutional resources and ensure that scholarship funds are maximized for all students. Therefore, if a student receives total scholarships and grants (institutional or outside) that exceed his/her direct University charges, Cedarville will reduce that student’s institutional gift-based aid such that the total gift-based aid does not exceed the student’s University charges. 

Some institutional aid may be partially funded by generous donors to the University. Students will be notified if a donor contributed to any portion of their awards, and an appropriate expression of appreciation will be required.  

Academic Scholarships: 

  • Academic scholarships for students starting in the Fall semester are awarded based on GPA and test scores received in the Admissions Office by April 15. 
  • Academic scholarships for students starting in the Spring semester are awarded based on GPA and test scores received in the Admissions Office by October 15.
