Once they subscribe, we'll send an email whenever new posts are added.

Although parents usually do not make the final college choice for their student, they definitely contribute to the process. Read today's post to discover our Top 4 Recommendations for parents as you guide your student through the college search process.

Any Final Questions?

April 30, 2014

Along with our admissions and financial aid team, we have enjoyed communicating with our Parent Prep subscribers this year as you have prayerfully considered Cedarville University.

As you finalize this decision as a family, we thought it may be helpful to share the top reasons your student's future classmates tell us they have chosen Cedarville:

  • Academic excellence: We have the in-demand majors students want, and our grads are excelling at places like Harvard, NASA, and Procter & Gamble (just to name a few). Cedarville doesn't just "talk" about quality. It is validated by national surveys, college rankings, job and graduate school placement data, competition results, and test scores.
  • Gospel purpose: It's not just a buzz-word here. Preparing students to live out their faith is a part of every aspect of classes, residence life, activities, and ministries.
  • Outstanding value: The rigorous academic experience is life-changing, costs and scholarships are competitive, and Cedarville is worth the investment.

If you have any last-minute questions or concerns that need to be addressed, we want to help! You are welcome to e-mail us, or call your student's admissions counselor at 1-800-CEDARVILLE (233-2784).


Reminder: To reserve your student's place at Cedarville University this fall, submit the $250 deposit by Thursday, May 1!

Today's Parent Prep post includes cost increase data from a recent MSNBC article and shares how Cedarville University fits into the conversation.
