April 3, 2018As 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 postgraduation final destination survey, 97.5% of Cedarville's class of 2017 reported being employed or in graduate school during that time period. This is not a one-year anomoly: Cedarville's three-year average is also 97%
These placement results are 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 the Q-and-A in today's post, originally published in an issue of Cedarville Magazine, and see what parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville.Read More »

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. Today's post provides helpful information about graduation rates and what to consider as you compare college options.Read More »

There is still time to register and join us for tonight’s FREE webinar — “Keys for Career Exploration" — and learn how to help your student choose a major that is the right fit for their unique gifts and abilities.
Cedarville University's Director of Career Services and Certified Professional Career Coach Jeff Reep will discuss how students can engage in career exploration early and often. Without it, college freshmen choose majors based on vague ideas of future lifestyle, but without true knowledge of their options or of the ways God has equipped them to serve His purposes. A college education is a significant investment, and selecting a major is an important choice. This practical webinar will help you ask the right questions and provide wise counsel to your student.
Register now, and plan to join the conversation tonight, November 7, at 8 p.m. EST.
