Cedarville University offers preferential pricing to all high school students who enroll in College Now from an associated high school or homeschool organization.
Beginning this association is easy! If you are a high school or homeschool leader, here are the details you need to know.
What is an associated high school or home school organization?
Any school or home school organization that completes the “School Opportunities” request form (at right) will automatically become associated with Cedarville’s College Now program. There are no fees or specific obligations required by this association.
Why do we offer this type of opportunity to high schools and home school organizations?
The primary purpose of this relationship is to provide a means whereby exceptional students can participate in the dual credit opportunities provided by Cedarville University College Now and enjoy access to quality, biblically based college courses while still in high school.
What benefits are available to the organization and its students?
Students from an associated organization automatically receive preferential pricing when they enroll in Cedarville’s College Now courses. Students receive a $25 per credit hour tuition reduction off of the Family Pay Option. Any courses taken following high school graduation would be priced at the rate set for degree-seeking freshmen at the time of enrolling in the class.
Students will be assigned to a College Now program advisor who will assist them in choosing courses, answering questions, and helping them to be successful in their Cedarville experience.
In addition, Cedarville University will provide customized promotional flyers to help the school promote College Now opportunities for its students. Flyers will include the school’s recommended College Now courses and promote the preferential pricing opportunity.
What expectations are placed on an associated organization?
Although this association does not create a specific obligation or partnership relationship, Cedarville University encourages high schools and home school associations to include Cedarville’s College Now program in all of its promotional materials and events related to college planning or dual credit opportunities.
Representatives from Cedarville can be invited to attend informational sessions for students and/or parents, and Cedarville will endeavor to have representation and promotional materials at those events.
Are the admissions criteria different for students from an associated organization?
Students from an associated school or home school association must apply and meet the published admissions criteria in order to enroll in Cedarville’s College Now program. View admissions information.
Any student interested in Cedarville University College Now should complete the online application and provide all required documents: Christian leader reference, high school transcript, and standardized test score.
What is the process for a College Now student to continue as a degree-seeking freshman at Cedarville?
Students wishing to attend Cedarville as degree-seeking freshmen may apply to the University using the process identified on Cedarville’s website and generally receive priority consideration. Information from the College Now application will automatically fill in the undergraduate application to make to process as easy as possible!
Will the organization receive a copy of the student's grades?
Each term, as part of the registration process, students will be asked to sign a release allowing Cedarville to report grades for the term directly to their school. Because this association is between the school and the university, failure of a student to provide that permission nullifies their eligibility to receive the reduced tuition rate for associated schools. Grade reporting generally occurs within three weeks of the end of the academic term.
What if the University's schedule is different from the school's schedule?
Schedules for academic terms at Cedarville and associated schools may not coincide. All requirements for submission of assignments and completion of activities in a Cedarville course apply to participating high school students even if these schedules conflict. Students should examine both schedules carefully to ensure they can meet all requirements for their courses at both institutions.
How long is the association in effect?
This association remains in effect until either the school or the University requests to end the association in writing.
