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.

FAFSA and Financial Aid Awards

March 6, 2015

Financial Aid 101Cedarville University's financial aid award notifications start going out this week! If you've not already done so, now is the time to complete your FAFSA in order for your student to obtain as much financial aid as possible!

Cedarville University (and most other colleges and universities) use the FAFSA to award need-based institutional awards, federal and state grants, and Stafford loans (whether subsidized or unsubsidized). Even if you do not think you will qualify for federal or state aid, many families receive institutional grants. So, your investment of 20 minutes to complete the FAFSA could pay dividends!

We want to award students the most generous aid package possible, so please complete your FAFSA and send the results to Cedarville (school code #003025) as soon as possible.

We provide a variety of online resources to help you complete the FAFSA and avoid processing delays. Visit cedarville.edu/fafsa today!

P.S. Don't miss Monday's webinar "Understanding Your Financial Aid Awards and Finalizing Your Financial Plan" that will provide practical information and strategies to pay for your Cedarville education. Register now for the 8 p.m. EDT  online presentation.
