Tuition Remission Benefits
Tuition Remission is provided to Cedarville University employees as a benefit, and eligibility is determined by University Human Resources. Questions about eligibility should be directed to University Human Resources at HR@cedarville.edu or 766-7885.
An employee wishing to receive a tuition remission benefit for his or herself, for a spouse, or for a dependent child is required to complete the following forms:
- Tuition Remission Eligibility Form. (Required of both non-degree and degree-seeking students) This form needs to be completed (one time per person) once the employee, spouse, or dependent has been accepted as a student and enrolled.
- Free Application for Federal Student Aid—FAFSA. (Required of degree-seeking students only) The FAFSA is specific to the academic year and must be completed annually for all degree-seeking students.
Tuition Remission Awarding Process
The awarding sequence for tuition remission recipients is as follows:
- Federal and state grants will be applied first (this will require families to submit a FAFSA for all degree-seeking students).
- Institutional aid will be applied next, including but not limited to academic scholarships and/or need-based grants.
- Tuition remission will then be awarded to bring the total aid package to 100% or 50% of tuition, in accordance with the appropriate staff benefit.
- Outside scholarships, Cedarville’s talent-based scholarships (athletic, music, worship, pharmacy, debate team, speech team, and theatre), Cedarville’s church matching scholarship, and donor funded scholarships will be applied after the tuition remission award.
Eligible students will continue to receive an aid package totaling 100% or 50% of tuition, per the appropriate staff benefit. Although the tuition remission benefit has not been reduced, a revision to the awarding sequence may reduce the University’s tuition remission obligation, and in some cases will reduce the total financial aid package families receive.
For the complete guidelines regarding Tuition Remission, please review section 4.4 in the University Personnel Policy Handbook.
