The Benefit of a Liberal Arts Degree

February 12, 2019

GradsToo often the liberal arts get a bad rap! But, in today's post, you'll read about a report published in Inside Higher Ed, Liberal Arts Grads Win Long-Term, that explores the personal benefits and career advantages that can be found in pursuing a liberal arts degree. According to the author, employers consistently say they want to hire people who have a broad knowledge base and can work together to solve problems, debate, communicate, and think critically ... all skills that liberal arts programs aggressively, and perhaps uniquely, strive to teach.

That's exactly how Cedarville University prepares its graduates ... with one important "value add!" Not only do our students learn how to think well, they learn how to live well, prepared to serve Christ with excellence, wherever He leads them.

Consider the Early Start June Term for Freshmen

February 5, 2019

Students working on assignmentsStudents who plan to enroll as freshmen this fall can join other incoming new students for our Early Start June term from June 15-29. During this two-week residential experience, students will take one general education course while they meet new friends and get to know campus better.

They can choose from the following general education courses:

  • The Bible and the Gospel (the first Bible minor course)
  • Essentials of Economics
  • Politics and American Culture
  • U.S. History II
  • General Psychology

Students will get a taste of Cedarville academics, but in a more relaxed environment and at a significant cost savings. Getting a gen ed course out of the way now will allow them to take lighter loads later, when they need it most. For credit-dense majors like nursing and engineering, this opportunity is particularly valuable, but all students will benefit from the chance to acclimate to campus, meet faculty and staff, and make new friends before they start in the fall.

The cost for Early Start is just $999, which includes housing and meals, activities, and tuition for the 3-credit hour course (which is discounted by 80%). Space is limited to the first 75 incoming freshmen who register, so don’t delay!


If you have a high school rising junior or senior, they can participate in Summer Scholars, our two-week residential summer program for high school students June 15-29. Students will take a 3-credit course while getting a taste of college life and participating in fun campus activities.

How a College's Graduation Rate Can Save You Money

January 10, 2019

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.
