Your FAFSA and Cedarville Financial Aid Notifications

January 13, 2017

FAFSA logoWe are just about ready to send financial aid packages to students who have been accepted for the fall 2017 semester and have submitted their FAFSA. If you have not already done so, please complete your FAFSA this weekend to ensure that your student will be included with our first award  notifications and receive as much financial aid as possible.

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) 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.

Once we receive your FAFSA, we will begin preparing your student's personalized financial aid award. Then, next week we will start sending students and parents a financial aid prospectus, which will outline all of the scholarships, grants, work study, and loan opportunities you qualify for.

Please complete your FAFSA now so we can award your student as much aid as possible when we put together your financial aid prospectus.

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


Need help completing the FAFSA? In October, our Financial Aid office offered a webinar called "Expert Tips for Completing the FAFSA." This one-hour archived presentation will take the mystery out of this government form and assure you avoid delays caused by submitting incomplete or inaccurate information.

When Will My Student Receive a Financial Aid Package?

November 18, 2016

FAFSA logoWith changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opening date this year, universities like Cedarville are now able to award financial aid packages up to three months earlier than before.

The FAFSA opened on October 1 (instead of January 1), and families were able to use tax information from two years ago to complete it (known as prior-prior year or PPY). This allows you to complete your FAFSA much sooner, without having to wait until the current year tax information is complete.

The good news for students and their families is they will now know much sooner what the final cost of their education will be, allowing them to make their final college decision earlier in their senior year.

Cedarville University plans to send award notifications to new incoming students in January

If you have not yet completed the FAFSA, visit fafsa.gov and complete it soon or check out our FAFSA filing instructions!
