Cedarville University is committed to affordability!

At Cedarville, we are doing everything we can to make a high-quality, Christian education affordable and accessible for families. Along with competitive costs well below the national private college average, Cedarville provides a wide range of financial aid options to assist students and families. Last year, nearly 100 percent of new freshmen received institutional scholarships, with an average of $15,000 in scholarship and grant aid from all sources (students who completed the FAFSA also had access to Federal Student Loans).

Academic scholarships range from $7,000 up to $20,000 per year and are renewable for all four years as long as the student meets the required GPA. These generous awards can be combined with need-based scholarships, academic program scholarships (music and pharmacy students, for example), athletic scholarships, and other forms of aid.
