Summer Academic Camps Explore Career Interests (and Other Great Opportunities)

March 24, 2015

Summer Camps

Make this summer one your students will never forget by sending them to a Cedarville academic or sports camp ... or have them get a head start on college by taking a college course on campus or online from home!

Cedarville Academic Camps give students the opportunity to spend a week at Cedarville exploring the world of art and design, business, criminal justice, engineering, geology, journalism, medicine, music, psychology, theatre, worship ministry, or writing! Your students will accomplish much more than career exploration. Camp faculty will challenge them to make their career their calling. They will be challenged to consider how their gifts, skills, and interests can make a difference in this world for Christ. We've packed the schedule with fun activities, too, so students return home with new friends and great memories! 

College Now Summer Studies is Cedarville's residential college study option for rising high school juniors and seniors. Students experience campus life and earn three hours of college credit. Choosing from a class in Spiritual Formation or Politics and American Culture, your student will study with a top Cedarville University professor in a small-class setting while enjoying campus life for two weeks (June 13–27).

Online course options and sports camps are other great summer possibilities at Cedarville! Learn more about all of these options at

Deadlines for the summer programs are coming quickly! Find out more about how your student can apply and register to become a part of the Cedarville University summer experience today!

Understanding Your Financial Aid Award

March 16, 2015

financial aidCedarville University began sending financial aid awards through our electronic notification system (eAwards) at the beginning of March. Here are answers to questions you may have as you are waiting for this important piece of information ... or anticipating this process next year!

How will I be notified when my 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 log-in 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 I am receiving this email, will my student definitely be receiving an eAward from Cedarville?

We are pleased to provide these Parent Prep 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

What if I still have questions?

Don't hesitate to contact Cedarville's Financial Aid office at 1-877-233-2784. Your student's admissions counselor will also be calling soon to review the eAward and address any remaining concerns or questions.

Why Choose a Christian College?

March 11, 2015

Photo of Cedarville's campusWe think a Christ-centered education is vital to equipping your student for a life that honors God both personally and professionally.

But why is choosing a Christian university so important? 

The No. 1 measurable outcome of a university degree in the United States is a decline in a student’s faith. Higher education is not value neutral, and students are walking away from their faith in disturbing numbers. 

But don’t just take our word for it. Christianity Today put together a great resource for parents and their high school students who are working through the decision of whether a Christian college is the right choice for them. 

Read today's post to discover if a Christian university is right for your student.
