You’ve heard us talk a lot about the quality of a Cedarville education. We're excited to share new information that affirms the results of our efforts and the caliber of our students and alumni.
In a recent survey of our 2018 graduates, we found that an amazing 98.3% of the graduating class was either employed or in graduate school within six months of commencement. That’s well above national averages and evidence that our students are well-prepared to enter the workforce upon graduation. Employers seek out Cedarville graduates for their academic preparation, work ethic, and character.
In fact, for the past five years, our placement rates have consistently topped national averages, as shown in the graph below.
And, not only are our graduates prepared to obtain good jobs in desirable career fields, they are being equipped to serve God and share the message of the Gospel wherever He leads them. That’s what truly sets Cedarville apart.
P.S. Our Career Services office is one of the big reasons for our graduates' placement success. If your student has not already connected with Career Services, encourage him or her to do so. Career Services offers seven career fairs each year to help students connect with potential employers and build a professional network. The Spring Career Fair is scheduled for February 20.

We hope you are enjoying your extended time with your student during the long break. We're excited to welcome them back to campus next week!
We're also excited about our annual Missions Conference, January 8-10. This is a perfect way to kick off the new semester, joining together and celebrating Cedarville's heart for the Gospel. This year we're welcoming Dr. Kevin Ezell, President of the North American Mission Board (NAMB), as the special speaker. We'll also hear from Dr. Matthew Bennett, Cedarville Assistant Professor of Missions and Theology.
You can join with your students and watch sessions online. The Missions Conference services will be at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday and 10 a.m. on Thursday. Visit our chapel site to watch live, or visit later to watch an archived session.

Cedarville University, like all colleges and universities, is required to provide a 1098-T tuition form to all students by January 31. We will email the 1098-T to your student by this date.
If you, as a parent, would like to receive this form, your student must grant you parental access through CedarNet first. After you have been granted access, we will email you a copy of your student’s 1098-T form by January 31. Please verify that we have an updated email for you to prevent delays in your receiving the form.
Additionally, if your student worked on campus this year, he or she will also receive a W-2 form via email by January 31. By law, we cannot give parents access to a student’s W-2 forms.
