When Will My Student Receive a Financial Aid Package?

November 19, 2018

FAFSA formCedarville University plans to begin sending award notifications to new incoming students in January. Having your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completed is the best way to ensure that we are able to award your student as much financial aid as possible.

The FAFSA opened on October 1. If you have not yet completed it, we encourage you to do so soon. Remember, the FAFSA is required to access all need-based scholarships at Cedarville as well as state and federal grants and low-interest federal loans.

If you have not completed the FAFSA yet, visit fafsa.gov and complete it soon. If you need help, check out our FAFSA filing instructions.

How Important Is a University's Doctrinal Statement?

November 13, 2018

Bible text close upLike your local church, Christian colleges all have a statement of beliefs. As you research and visit different institutions with your student, how important is it to consider each college's doctrinal statement?

First, know that a doctrinal statement provides the general framework within which the university will be offering its education. It is a good idea to review the statements (most are posted online) to assure you are comfortable with the direction. If you have questions about what you read, this is a great opportunity to involve your pastor to provide insights.

Second, ask Christian universities if their faculty sign the doctrinal statement as a condition of employment. Not all do. Knowing that faculty will be teaching in line with the institution's stated beliefs provides a point of accountability to you as a parent. Are you comfortable that the faculty at the university will uphold the beliefs that are most important to your family?

Several years ago, we conducted a study related to parents' use of the Cedarville University website. We made an interesting — and candidly, unexpected —finding. Parents were more likely to search terms related to the University's doctrinal commitments and focus on spiritual growth than any other topics.

In today's post, Dr. Jason Lee, Dean of the School of Biblical and Theological Studies, provides insight about the importance of Cedarville's Doctrinal Statement and how it informs Cedarville's approach to Christ-centered higher education.
