Locate Your Student ID Number

Locate your Student ID number by viewing your class schedule or Library ID via myCU.

Apply for Financial Aid (as necessary)

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), if you plan to apply for federal loans or University need-based aid. Even if you have applied for aid in the past, you need to file a FAFSA for each academic year that you plan to enroll. The FAFSA must list Cedarville's school code (003025). Financial aid is offered and processed after students register for classes.

For specific costs and financial aid information related to your program, select your program from Cedarville's graduate programs.


  • A student in a master's degree program must be enrolled at least half time (3* hours) per semester to be eligible for federal financial aid.
  • Only degree-seeking students are eligible to receive financial aid. Nondegree students, such as those enrolled in certificate programs, are not eligible for financial aid.
  • Summer School Aid Application: All graduate students who register for classes and plan to apply for financial aid during the summer term should complete and submit this form.
  • Graduate Financial Aid Eligibility: Master of Education (M.Ed.) students who apply for the Christian School Association Scholarship should complete and submit this form, in addition to the FAFSA.

Published by Student Life and Christian Ministries, the graduate student handbook includes many of the guidelines and principles that will shape your time at Cedarville. The handbook is based on a set of core values and the Cedarville Covenant, which shape each student's experience at Cedarville University.
