When Will My Student Receive a Financial Aid Package?

November 16, 2017

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 and complete it soon. If you need help, check out our FAFSA filing instructions.

Did You Know Cedarville Offers 3-Year Degree Completion Options?

October 5, 2017

 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. Beginning this fall, Cedarville began offering three-year completion plans for several of our popular undergraduate degrees, and we just announced the addition of another for next year, our worship major.

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!

Students can choose from 13 popular programs:

Visit our website to view the complete list of programs with a three-year completion option and consider the possibilities for your student.

P.S. Encourage seniors who have not yet completed an application to apply to Cedarville to by November 1, and we'll waive the $30 application fee!
