Dual Enrollment Admission Requirements
Admission Requirements for Dual Enrolled Students
Students are eligible for admission to Cedarville University’s Dual Enrollment program if they meet the following criteria:
- Complete Cedarville’s application for admission to Dual Enrollment, AND
- Provide a Christian Leader Reference, AND
- Provide an official high school transcript demonstrating a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 OR meet minimum test score requirements on one of the following exams: ACT, SAT, CLT, or ACCUPLACER.
Dual-enrolled and College Credit Plus (CCP) students are subject to the same standards of admission, academic integrity, social conduct, community covenant, and University policies as other Cedarville University students.
The Dual Enrollment application
Apply Now using the Cedarville undergraduate application and choose the Dual Enrollment option.
Applications for admission to Cedarville’s Dual Enrollment program are considered on a rolling basis and decisions are typically shared with students within two weeks of completing the application file. Please review Cedarville’s timeline for admission and course registration.
Church Leader Recommendation Form
As part of your Cedarville application, you will be asked to provide the name and email address of a Christian leader willing to recommend you. Your recommender should not be related to you and should have known you for at least six months. A digital form will be emailed to your recommender for completion.
Official High School Transcript
A high school transcript and GPA should include at least one semester of high school coursework in each of the following subject areas: math, English, science, and social studies. High school level courses (e.g., Algebra 1) taken prior to ninth grade may be included on the high school transcript but should include the year taken.
If a student does not meet the minimum requirement for a high school transcript, then they should provide standardized test scores to show college readiness.
Standardized Test Scores
Standardized test scores are typically not required but many students choose to provide them. Submitted test scores will be considered as part of the student’s application. Cedarville University may require ACT, SAT, CLT, or ACCUPLACER test scores for the following reasons:
- To meet College Credit Plus eligibility requirements (Ohio students only)
- To meet proficiency requirements for math or English courses
- To determine readiness for college coursework
If a student chooses to take the ACCUPLACER for admission, the student must demonstrate proficiency on both the WritePlacer and the Next-Generation Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics exams.
Students may view our recommended minimum test scores. Other standardized tests including the Ohio College Credit Plus test options used to determine CCP funding eligibility will not be used to evaluate dual enrollment eligibility at Cedarville.
Students may register online for national test dates for the ACT, SAT, CLT, or visit Test Information to schedule an online ACCUPLACER exam or on-campus residual ACT. Cedarville’s SAT code is 1151 and the ACT code is 3245.
English Proficiency: If your first language is not English, you must meet Cedarville’s English language proficiency requirement. See International Admissions.
