Understanding Your Financial Aid Award
March 9, 2016
Cedarville University began sending financial aid awards through our electronic notification system (eAwards) at the beginning of March. Here is additional information for those of you who are awaiting this important piece of information ... or anticipating this process next year!
How will you be notified when your student's Financial Aid eAward is available?
Students will receive an email letting them know that their Financial Aid eAward has been updated and is ready to review. Your student will need to provide you with the login information so you can view the eAward online. After May 1, your student can grant you access to review financial information, and you'll have your own account to use from that point forward.
If you receive this email, will your student definitely be receiving an eAward from Cedarville?
We are pleased to provide these ParentPrep resources to all subscribing parents, regardless of whether or not your student plans to attend Cedarville. However, note that only students who have already applied and been accepted to Cedarville University will receive the eAward notification. For students still in the application process, eAwards will be sent as soon as the admissions process is complete.
What information is provided in the eAward?
When accessing your student's eAward, you can:
- VIEW the current financial aid package, which details the grants, scholarships, and loans that have been awarded
- ACCEPT or REJECT student loan options
- INFORM us about outside grants or scholarships not listed
- SHARE comments or ASK questions
Don't hesitate to contact Cedarville's financial aid office at 1-800-444-2433. Your student's admissions counselor will also be calling soon to review the eAward and address any remaining concerns or questions.
P.S. If you haven’t yet completed your FAFSA, be sure to do it soon! This is the best way we can award you the most financial aid possible. Need help completing it? We’ve compiled helpful information to assist you in getting started.
