High School Students Taking College Courses

December 4, 2014

Does your student want to get a head start on earning college credit? Are you looking for ways to save money on the cost of college? Would your student benefit from getting a taste of what college life is like now? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, encourage your student to consider taking online or on-campus courses from Cedarville University

The evidence is mounting that high school students who take a college course are more likely to attend college, and at Cedarville, we've also seen high school students outperform their college student peers. They study with top professors, earn college credit, and get a taste of university academics ... before they ever step foot on campus as a freshmen student! 

As part of Cedarville's high school course options, students will:

  • Get a head start on college, potentially saving both time and money in completing their degree. 
  • Satisfy high school academic requirements at the same time (ask your student’s high school guidance counselor for details). 
  • Study with top Cedarville professors who will challenge them to think deeply and apply biblical principles to what they are learning. 
  • Gain confidence that they’ll excel at college-level academics. 
Online courses are forming for spring semester, which begins in January. Courses are also offered in the summer (including our campus-based, two-week Summer Studies program) and the fall semester. Your student can choose from our most popular general education courses

and experience innovative technologies that are shaping the future of education. Local students may also choose to attend courses on campus.

As an added bonus for Ohio students, Cedarville is now participating in College Credit Plus (formerly known as PSEO). Through this program, Ohio high school students are able to enroll in Cedarville courses for FREE — including books!

How Do Colleges Make Admissions Decisions?

November 18, 2014

photo of admissions acceptance"Begin with the end in mind." That’s good counsel for just about anything in life. Having a vision and a purpose allows us to stay focused on the end goal.

When colleges make admissions decisions, they are seeking to admit students "with the end in mind." Specifically, will they be successful in their college experience and able to achieve their educational goals at the institution?

Admissions criteria, then, are used as guidelines to help admissions officers determine if students have the "raw materials" to meet a university’s stated outcomes for graduates. At Cedarville, we seek not just to review the past, but also to consider the potential for the future.

Today's post highlights how colleges and universities set their admissions criteria "with the end in mind."

P.S. It's not too late to apply for fall 2015! If your student is considering Cedarville University, encourage him or her to apply online as soon as possible. We would be happy to discuss our admissions criteria with you in greater detail, if you have questions.
