High School Students Can Take College Courses and Save Money

May 22, 2019

College Now LogoYou may be getting ready to send one child off to college, but do you still have other children at home? Cedarville University has an opportunity for them as well! Our College Now program allows students to enroll in college-level courses while they’re still in high school, potentially saving thousands on their total college costs.

As part of Cedarville’s College Now program, high school students can:

  • Study with top Cedarville professors who will challenge them to think deeply and apply biblical principles to what they are learning 
  • Get a head start on college, potentially saving both time and money in completing their degree 
  • Gain confidence that they’ll excel at college-level academics
  • Save (a lot!) on tuition

And, if you’re an Ohio resident, your student may be able to take courses for FREE through Ohio’s College Credit Plus program. Those outside of Ohio can take advantage of greatly reduced costs though our Family Pay Option.

There's still time to enroll for fall classes, which begin August 21, 2019. However, deadlines for Ohio private and homeschooled students to apply for state funding for this year have passed.

Check out our website to learn more and encourage your high school student to start College Now!

Summer Studies Offers Amazing Experience for Students

February 1, 2018

Summer studies

“Summer School” = “Two of the Most Amazing Weeks of My Life!”

That’s how one high school student described her experience at Cedarville University's Summer Studies, a two-week residential program for rising high school juniors and seniors. Summer Studies offers a unique blend of rigorous academics, transformative spiritual and personal growth, and crazy fun with great new friends.

Offering a choice between four courses that satisfy general education requirements in any Cedarville University major – The Bible and the Gospel, Essentials of Economics, General Psychology, and Politics and American Culture – Summer Studies will allow your student to experience real college life, earn three hours of college credit, and make new friends that will journey alongside them for their entire undergraduate career at Cedarville.

This year’s Summer Studies takes place June 9–23 and costs $999, which includes the 3-credit course, housing and meals, and all activities. (Ohio students may qualified for free tuition through College Credit Plus. Check with your high school guidance counselor to see if you qualify.)

If your student is a rising junior or senior who is already taking College Now courses or has been accepted to the College Now program, no new application is required. Students who are not yet a part of College Now can apply today! Visit our website to view important dates and deadlines.
