Measuring Cedarville's ROI (Return on Investment)

April 27, 2016

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.
