We all know students who started their four-year college journey … six years ago. Whether they are struggling to pass classes, basking in the learning experience, or simply switching their major too many times, their college education can quickly acquire an even larger price tag when eight semesters turns into twelve.
One of the best ways a university can save you money is to help your student graduate on time. Consider the additional costs if students take five or more years to finish. Consider the cost if they never complete their educational goals!
Today's post discusses this critical issue and offers advice for checking graduation rates and comparing total costs.
P.S. There is still time to register for tonight's FAFSA webinar. The online presentation begins at 8 p.m. EST. Register now.

The Net Price Calculator
(NPC) is a fairly new feature added to financial aid office
websites in 2011. Mandated by the federal government, this new online tool is available on every university website in the country, including Cedarville University's
Net price is defined as the price you actually pay after subtracting financial aid from a school's sticker price:
Net Price = Sticker Price – Financial Aid
The NPC is a tool of the financial aid office with the intended goal to make it easier for students and their parents to estimate their net price of attending a college. Who wouldn't like that? While the NPC offers some great benefits and is a helpful step in the right direction, it may not be the complete answer that parents are looking for.
Read today's full post to learn more about the NPC and why financial aid offices encourage parents to use it with caution.
P.S. October is nearing an end...and so is our early application fee waiver. Please encourage students to submit their application by Friday, October 31, and Cedarville will waive the application fee.

While looking for a full-time career may seem several years away for high school juniors and seniors, Cedarville University understands that the career search should begin much sooner than one’s senior year in college and involves more than just filling out applications. Therefore, each year Cedarville’s Career Services office hosts Career Fairs which are open to all students (freshmen through seniors) as well as alumni and the general public.
Read today's full post to find out who was represented at this year's Fall Career Fair (you'll be amazed!) and learn how Career Services can help your student land a first job!
P.S. Why Cedarville? Watch this inspiring video that our faculty, staff, and students made for you. It answers that question! If your family is looking for a university that is bold about the Gospel, bold about equipping outstanding professionals, and bold about affordability, Cedarville is the place! Also, please encourage students to apply to Cedarville University this weekend, and we'll waive the application fee.
