Parent Prep

It's Time for the Hand-Off!

June 3, 2019

 Getting Started Logo 

Some of our Parent Prep subscribers are about to be parents of a new Cedarville University student! We have enjoyed sharing information and resources with you throughout this year. It will be exciting to meet you and your new student (along with more than 1,000 others!) when you arrive on campus for Getting Started in August.

Now for the hand-off ...

The University communicates regularly with parents of current students through its Parent Connect eNews. These weekly updates provide helpful information about upcoming events, parent resources, and Cedarville news. You will receive your first Parent Connect email in mid-July.

If your student is attending another college or if you simply wish to unsubscribe from Parent Prep or Parent Connect emails, you may do so at any time. Just visit the email subscription management site, enter your email address, and update your communication preferences.

On behalf of all of us on the Enrollment Management team, welcome to the Cedarville University family!

P.S. If you are the parent of a younger student, your Parent Prep communication will continue later this summer. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.

High School Students Can Take College Courses and Save Money

May 22, 2019

College Now LogoYou may be getting ready to send one child off to college, but do you still have other children at home? Cedarville University has an opportunity for them as well! Our College Now program allows students to enroll in college-level courses while they’re still in high school, potentially saving thousands on their total college costs.

As part of Cedarville’s College Now program, high school students can:

  • Study with top Cedarville professors who will challenge them to think deeply and apply biblical principles to what they are learning 
  • Get a head start on college, potentially saving both time and money in completing their degree 
  • Gain confidence that they’ll excel at college-level academics
  • Save (a lot!) on tuition

And, if you’re an Ohio resident, your student may be able to take courses for FREE through Ohio’s College Credit Plus program. Those outside of Ohio can take advantage of greatly reduced costs though our Family Pay Option.

There's still time to enroll for fall classes, which begin August 21, 2019. However, deadlines for Ohio private and homeschooled students to apply for state funding for this year have passed.

Check out our website to learn more and encourage your high school student to start College Now!
