Cedarville Financial Aid Notifications and Your FAFSA

January 17, 2019

FAFSA logoJust this week, we began to send financial aid packages to students who have been accepted for the fall 2019 semester and have submitted their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you have not already done so, please complete your FAFSA to ensure that your student will receive as much financial aid as possible and be among the first to receive a financial aid package.

Remember, the FAFSA is used to consider you for not only government forms of aid, but also for all need-based scholarships from Cedarville. Many students who do not receive federal or state grants DO qualify for Cedarville scholarships or subsidized government loans.

Once we receive your FAFSA, we will prepare your student's personalized financial aid award. Very shortly thereafter, we will send you a financial aid prospectus, which will outline all of the scholarships, grants, work study, and loan opportunities available to your student.

Visit our Financial Aid website for the most up-to-date information about financial aid at Cedarville.

Announcing Increased Scholarships!

October 9, 2018

studentsAt Cedarville University, we are doing everything we can to make our academically rigorous, Christ-focused education affordable for families. This week, we announced increased scholarships for incoming freshmen for fall 2019, and we wanted to be sure you were among the first to hear the news.

Academic and achievement scholarships now start at $6,000 a year and go all the way up to $20,000, and these scholarships are renewable for all four years (if academic requirements are met). These generous scholarships can be combined with other Cedarville or outside scholarships, as well as need-based aid.

A Cedarville education is one of the best investments your student will ever make, and we are serious about making it affordable for your family.
