Tuition Remission for dependents of Employees of Other Christian Universities

Each year Cedarville University accepts a number of quality students into the tuition exchange program from participating schools in the Council for Christian Colleges & University's Tuition Waiver Exchange Program (CCCU TWEP) and/or from Baptist Bible College or Word of Life Bible Institute. Cedarville University accepts two students per academic year.

The tuition exchange program is competitive so early application is encouraged! Eligibility and selection criteria include:

  • Classification: Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior, or Transfer
  • GPA (college or high school)
  • ACT or SAT scores
  • Recommendation from pastor: spiritual reputation, Christian testimony, and involvement
  • Activities, accomplishments, and awards: church, school, sports, summer programs, etc.
  • Potential for leadership and contribution to campus life at Cedarville
  • Major field of study
  • Parent employed full-time and eligible for full tuition remission
  • Financial need (determined by FAFSA)

Application Process

  1. Complete Cedarville University's regular admission process and be accepted.
  2. Have the contact person from your school complete and submit the CCCU TWEP & Exchange Request Application to Cedarville University by January 15th. If you have any questions, contact Vicky Herby in the Cedarville University Financial Aid Office (937-766-7866).

Please note: Tuition Remission covers the cost of tuition only. Non-tuition charges are the responsibility of the student.

Tuition Remission Awarding Process (effective July 1, 2010)

The awarding sequence for tuition remission recipients is as follows:

  • Federal and state grants will be applied first (this will require families to submit a FAFSA for all degree-seeking students).
  • Institutional aid will be applied next, including but not limited to academic scholarships and/or need-based grants.
  • Tuition remission will then be awarded to bring the total aid package to 100% or 50% of tuition, in accordance with the appropriate staff benefit.
  • Outside scholarships, Cedarville's talent-based scholarships (athletic, forensics, debate and theatre), and Cedarville's church matching grant will be applied after the tuition remission award.

Eligible students will continue to receive an aid package totaling 100% or 50% of tuition, per the appropriate staff benefit. Although the tuition remission benefit has not been reduced, a revision to the awarding sequence may reduce the University's tuition remission obligation, and in some cases will reduce the total financial aid package families receive.
