We Met the Goal!

October 2, 2014

300 By ThirtyWe are excited to share that our 300 by 30 challenge was successful. We had 302 students apply to Cedarville University, allowing us to offer all 6 scholarships as well as 6 Cedarville prize packs to 12 randomly selected applicants!

The admissions office will be drawing names this week and will be contacting the winners via phone or email by Friday, October 3, 2014. 

Thanks to all who spread the word, applied for admission, and participated in the 300 by 30 challenge

P.S. Even though the 300 by 30 challenge may have come and gone, there is still plenty of time to apply for admission to Cedarville University!! We will waive the $30 fee for any student who applies by October 31.

"Waive" Goodbye to Application Fees...and be Entered to Win a Scholarship!

September 30, 2014

College application fees can add up fast! Thirty dollars here; fifty dollars there. Why pay them if you don't have to?

Most universities offer application fee waivers for students who apply by a specific deadline, typically in the fall. Here at Cedarville University we're doing that...and more! For example, Cedarville will waive its application fee for all students who apply online by October 31, 2014. However, we're not stopping there. 

300 by ThirtyLast Friday we kicked off our "300 by Thirty" Challenge. Any high school senior or transfer student who applies to Cedarville by September 30 (TODAY!) will be entered into a drawing to win one of up to six $1,000 scholarships* or an exciting Cedarville prize pack! By submitting college applications early and taking advantage of fee waivers and other incentives such as our "300 by Thirty" challenge, students can start saving now on college-related expenses.

Encourage your student to apply to Cedarville early. Just think - that $30 savings could buy a sturdy umbrella and an entire month's supply of Ramen noodles (both of which will greatly enhance your student's college experience), and that $1,000 scholarship will definitely help to offset expenses the first semester!  

Questions? Your student's admissions counselor is available to help! Our team looks forward to meeting you and answering your questions.

*The actual number of scholarships awarded is dependent upon the number of students who apply during the Challenge.

U.S. News, College Rankings, and Your Search Process

September 15, 2014

Bar ChartThis is the time of year for college rankings.

Just this week U.S. News & World Report released its annual college ratings publication, ranking Cedarville University in the Top 10 (sixth overall) in the Midwest according to its best regional colleges rankings for 2015.

Whether it's U.S.News or the Washington Monthly (where Cedarville was ranked #15 in the national Top 100 Baccalaureate Colleges list this fall), many publications are taking a look at what's happening in higher education and seeking to assign a value or ranking to educational experiences and university outcomes.

So, how should you use the rankings? What value do they have in your college search process?
