How the Graduation Rate of a College Can Save You Money

January 9, 2017

Grad cap with money

We all know students who started their four-year college journey… six years ago. 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.

When Will My Student Receive a Financial Aid Package?

November 18, 2016

FAFSA logoWith changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opening date this year, universities like Cedarville are now able to award financial aid packages up to three months earlier than before.

The FAFSA opened on October 1 (instead of January 1), and families were able to use tax information from two years ago to complete it (known as prior-prior year or PPY). This allows you to complete your FAFSA much sooner, without having to wait until the current year tax information is complete.

The good news for students and their families is they will now know much sooner what the final cost of their education will be, allowing them to make their final college decision earlier in their senior year.

Cedarville University plans to send award notifications to new incoming students in January

If you have not yet completed the FAFSA, visit and complete it soon or check out our FAFSA filing instructions!

Parents of Seniors: Complete the FAFSA starting October 1

September 21, 2016

FAFSAThe Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required to access all need-based financial aid. Even families who do not anticipate qualifying for federal aid, like the Pell Grant, may receive need-based scholarships from Cedarville and be able to access subsidized student loans.

For the first time ever, the FAFSA opens on October 1 (instead of January 1 as in years past). You can complete the FAFSA electronically at using your 2015 tax data. 

It’s easier than ever, too, as most families will be able to use the automated data retrieval tool to pre-fill much of the tax-related information. Include Cedarville’s federal school code: 003025 to ensure your FAFSA results are sent directly to us. 

Our financial aid office has put together resources to assist you as you complete the FAFSA, including an archived webinar. Please note that while the webinar will provide helpful information, it will not address the new October 1 open date.
