You 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. 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 24, 2016. However, deadlines for Ohio private and homeschooled students to receive state funding have passed for the upcoming school year.
Check out our website to learn more and encourage your high school student to start College Now!

As high school seniors and their parents sit down to finalize a college decision before the May 1 deadline, one topic is nearly always part of the discussion: cost.
While many universities — including Cedarville — are taking intentional steps to make a college education more affordable, parents are increasingly looking at job placement rates in order to weigh an institution’s benefits against its costs in an effort to decide whether or not a considerable investment is worthwhile.
Cedarville's placement rates continue to be impressive. In a six-month post-graduation final destination survey, 97.2% of Cedarville's class of 2015 reported being employed or in graduate school during that time period. That's well above the national averages reported by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which has reported an average of 88% over the last five years.
But don't just take our word for it. Read today's post and you'll hear what parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville, and why they think Cedarville is worth the investment.
P.S. If your student has been accepted to Cedarville for fall 2016, be sure to submit your $250 reservation deposit by May 1 to ensure a place in the incoming class.
