Prerequisites and Proficiency Requirements

Some courses have a prerequisite which means that courses must be taken in a sequence or the completion of a particular course is required before a student can register for the course. Other courses require that students demonstrate that they are proficient in the course subject matter before enrolling.

While Cedarville University allows test optional admissions through spring 2023, students are still required to meet proficiency requirements before enrolling in English and math courses. College Now students can meet this requirement with standardized test scores (ACT, SAT or CLT). Students may take the residual ACT on campus.

Minimum test scores to demonstrate proficiency for these courses include:

 

ENG-1400 Composition

Transferability of Credits

Understanding how credits transfer can be particularly important for dual-enrolled students who may not yet know where they plan to attend college after high school.

How dual credits transfer to Cedarville

If you have taken or plan to take courses at another college or university, please see our information for transfer students or contact transfer@cedarville.edu for a credit evaluation.

How Cedarville credits transfer to another institution

Cedarville University offers excellent undergraduate, graduate, and online degree programs. However, should you decide to pursue undergraduate studies at another institution, you can feel confident that college credits earned at Cedarville are eligible to transfer to any other accredited institution of higher learning in the United States. Cedarville is fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Please note that it is up to the college that will grant your degree to determine how your credits will count. Transfer policies differ from one institution to another.

Students should work closely with their College Now advisor when planning to transfer credits.
