Admissions Timeline and Deadlines

Cedarville University follows a rolling admissions process. An application is reviewed by the admissions committee as soon as the application and all supplemental items are received. While there is no specific deadline for admission under this model, applicants are encouraged to apply early for the term desired due to other deadlines (e.g. financial aid, housing, etc.). International applicants do have a final deadline of May 1 for Fall Semester and November 1 for Spring Semester.
