 Students sitting outside - Three-Year Options

Cedarville is always looking for ways to help make our distinctly Christian education more affordable and accessible for families. One way we do that is by offering three-year completion plans for many of our popular undergraduate degrees.

What a great way for students to fast-track their college experience and save money on overall education expenses. You could reduce your college bill by $15,000 or more. And, your student would enter the workforce and begin earning a salary one year sooner, making the value of a three-year degree $50,000 or more!

Read today's post to learn more about three-year completion plans available to your student at Cedarville.

Announcing Increased Scholarships!

October 9, 2018

studentsAt Cedarville University, we are doing everything we can to make our academically rigorous, Christ-focused education affordable for families. This week, we announced increased scholarships for incoming freshmen for fall 2019, and we wanted to be sure you were among the first to hear the news.

Academic and achievement scholarships now start at $6,000 a year and go all the way up to $20,000, and these scholarships are renewable for all four years (if academic requirements are met). These generous scholarships can be combined with other Cedarville or outside scholarships, as well as need-based aid.

A Cedarville education is one of the best investments your student will ever make, and we are serious about making it affordable for your family.
