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!

"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.
