Cedarville Financial Aid Notifications and Your FAFSA

January 17, 2018

FAFSA logoJust this week, we began to send financial aid packages to students who have been accepted for the fall 2018 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 you qualify for.

Visit our Financial Aid website for the most up-to-date information about financial aid at Cedarville. 


Need help completing the FAFSA? In October, our Financial Aid office offered a webinar called "Expert Tips for Completing the FAFSA." This one-hour archived presentation will take the mystery out of this government form and assure you avoid delays caused by submitting incomplete or inaccurate information.

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.
