May 19, 2015

You likely know that colleges use these scores when making admissions decisions, but did you know that schools also use them when handing out scholarships?

Taking the extra time – and spending a little extra money – to take test prep courses for standardized tests may pay off for your student. Improving a test score by just a point or two could mean thousands of dollars in extra scholarships over the course of your student’s four years in college.

Measuring Cedarville's ROI

April 24, 2015

College CostsAs high school seniors and their parents sit down this spring to make final college decisions, one topic may present a daunting hurdle: the rising cost of a college education. While many universities — including Cedarville — are taking dramatic steps to curb that upward trend, 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 sixth-month postgraduation final destination survey, 96.8% of Cedarville's class of 2014 reported being employed or in graduate school. 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. In today's post, you'll read a Q&A that was published in the recent spring/summer issue of Cedarville Magazine and hear what other parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville.
