May 1, 2015

question buttonImportant Reminder: Today, May 1, is the deadline to guarantee your student's place at Cedarville University for the fall. Submit the $250 deposit online now!


Along with our admissions and financial aid teams, we have enjoyed communicating with our Parent Prep subscribers this year as you have prayerfully considered Cedarville University.

As you finalize this decision as a family, we thought it may be helpful to share the top reasons your student's future classmates tell us they have chosen Cedarville:

  • Academic excellence: We have the in-demand majors students want, and our grads are excelling at places like Harvard, NASA, and Procter & Gamble (just to name a few). Cedarville doesn't just "talk" about quality. It is validated by national surveys, college rankings, job and graduate school placement data, competition results, and test scores.
  • Gospel purpose: It's not just a buzzword here. Preparing students to live out their faith is a part of every aspect of classes, residence life, activities, and ministries.
  • Outstanding value: The rigorous academic experience is life-changing, costs and scholarships are competitive, and Cedarville is worth the investment.

If you have any last-minute questions or concerns that need to be addressed, we want to help! You are welcome to email us, or call your student's admissions counselor at 1-800-CEDARVILLE (233-2784).

Reservation Deposit Due This Week!

April 29, 2015

Deposit reminderIt is hard to believe, but May 1 is quickly approaching! The reservation deposit is due on Friday.

If your student has been admitted to Cedarville but has not yet submitted the reservation deposit, now is the time to take that next step by faith, affirm your college choice, and start what will be an amazing academic journey!

Plan to submit the deposit this week to ensure your student's place at Cedarville in the fall. Note that deposits may be paid after May 1, but if the class is full, a place cannot be guaranteed.

We hope Cedarville University is your choice, but wherever God leads, we wish your family HIS very best!

Measuring Cedarville's ROI

April 24, 2015

College CostsAs high school seniors and their parents sit down this spring to make final college decisions, one topic may present a daunting hurdle: the rising cost of a college education. While many universities — including Cedarville — are taking dramatic steps to curb that upward trend, parents are increasingly looking at job placement rates in order to weigh an institution’s benefits against its costs in an effort to decide whether or not a considerable investment is worthwhile.

Cedarville's placement rates continue to be impressive. In a sixth-month postgraduation final destination survey, 96.8% of Cedarville's class of 2014 reported being employed or in graduate school. That's well above the national averages reported by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which has reported an average of 88% over the last five years.

But don't just take our word for it. In today's post, you'll read a Q&A that was published in the recent spring/summer issue of Cedarville Magazine and hear what other parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville.


P.S. Ready to finalize the decision to attend Cedarville? Submit the $250 reservation deposit online today! As a reminder, the reservation deposit is due by May 1.
