Consider the Early Start June Term for Freshmen

February 6, 2020

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 13-27. 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 13-27. Students will take a 3-credit course while getting a taste of college life and participating in fun campus activities.

Cedarville Financial Aid Notifications and Your FAFSA

January 16, 2020

FAFSA logoThis week, we began to send financial aid packages to students who have been accepted for the fall 2020 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.
