College application fees can add up fast – $30 here, $50 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, and Cedarville University is no different. Cedarville will waive its application fee for all students who apply online by November 1, 2015.
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!).
Questions? Your student's admissions counselor is available to help! Our team looks forward to meeting you and answering your questions.

If you are the parent of a high school junior, you and your student have probably already started thinking about ACT and SAT standardized tests. You likely know that colleges use these scores when making admissions decisions, but did you know that schools also use them when handing out scholarships?
Taking the extra time – and spending a little extra money – to take test prep courses for standardized tests may pay off for your student. Improving a test score by just a point or two could mean thousands of dollars in extra scholarships over the course of your student’s four years in college.
Today's post provide a variety of test prep resources. Please share this email with friends who have a rising senior and encourage them to subscribe to Parent Prep.

As high school seniors and their parents sit down this spring to make final college decisions, one topic may present a daunting hurdle: the rising cost of a college education. While many universities — including Cedarville — are taking dramatic steps to curb that upward trend, parents are increasingly looking at job placement rates in order to weigh an institution’s benefits against its costs in an effort to decide whether or not a considerable investment is worthwhile.
Cedarville's placement rates continue to be impressive. In a sixth-month postgraduation final destination survey, 96.8% of Cedarville's class of 2014 reported being employed or in graduate school. That's well above the national averages reported by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which has reported an average of 88% over the last five years.
But don't just take our word for it. In today's post, you'll read a Q&A that was published in the recent spring/summer issue of Cedarville Magazine and hear what other parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville.
P.S. Ready to finalize the decision to attend Cedarville? Submit the $250 reservation deposit online today! As a reminder, the reservation deposit is due by May 1.
