How a College's Graduation Rate Can Save You Money

January 22, 2021

grad cap on pile of moneyWe all know students who started their four-year college journey… six years ago. Whether they are struggling to pass classes, basking in the learning experience, or simply switching their major too many times, their college education can quickly acquire an even larger price tag when eight semesters turn into 12.

One of the best ways a university can save you money is to help your student graduate on time. Consider the additional costs if students take five or more years to finish. Consider the cost if they never complete their educational goals!

At Cedarville, we make it a priority to help students graduate on time, saving them money but more importantly, allowing them to begin using their career to make an impact for Christ sooner. Today's post provides helpful information about graduation rates and what to consider as you compare college options.

Summer Studies Offers Amazing Experience for Students

January 20, 2021

Summer studies

“Summer School” = “Two of the Most Amazing Weeks of My Life!”

That’s how one high school student described her experience at Cedarville University's Summer Scholars, a two-week residential program for rising high school juniors and seniors. Summer Studies offers a unique blend of rigorous academics, transformative spiritual and personal growth, and crazy fun with great new friends.

Offering a choice from among four courses that satisfy general education requirements in any Cedarville University major – The Bible and the Gospel, Essentials of Economics, General Psychology, U.S. History, and Politics and American Culture – Summer Scholars will allow your student to experience real college life, earn three hours of college credit, and make new friends that will journey alongside them for their entire undergraduate career at Cedarville.

This year’s Summer Studies takes place June 12–26, 2021, and costs $999, which includes the 3-credit course, housing and meals, and all activities. (Ohio students may qualified for free tuition through College Credit Plus. Check with your high school guidance counselor to see if you qualify.)

If your student is a rising junior or senior who is already taking College Now courses or has been accepted to the College Now program, no new application is required. Students who are not yet a part of College Now can apply today! Visit our website to view important dates and deadlines.

P.S. Please note that Summer Scholars will adhere to any necessary COVID precautions to ensure the safety of students and staff.

Cedarville Financial Aid Notifications and Your FAFSA

January 19, 2021

FAFSA logoThis week, we will begin to send financial aid packages to students who have been accepted for the fall 2021 semester and have submitted their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you have not already done so, please complete your FAFSA to ensure that your student will receive as much financial aid as possible and be among the first to receive a financial aid package.

Remember, the FAFSA is used to consider you for not only government forms of aid, but also for all need-based scholarships from Cedarville. Many students who do not receive federal or state grants DO qualify for Cedarville scholarships or subsidized government loans.

Once we receive your FAFSA, we will prepare your student's personalized financial aid award. Very shortly thereafter, we will send you a financial aid prospectus, which will outline all of the scholarships, grants, work study, and loan opportunities available to your student.

Visit our Financial Aid website for the most up-to-date information about financial aid at Cedarville.
