We 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.

With 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!

For the first time ever, the FAFSA opened on October 1, and the change is raising some questions for parents. We found this 7 Myths About the 2017-18 FAFSA Debunked article to be a helpful resource.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required to access all need-based scholarships at Cedarville as well as state and federal grants, so we want to do all we can to make sure you are able to complete the FAFSA correctly to maximize your student's aid.
Our Financial Aid team is here to help you as well. Contact us if we can help in any way.
P.S. Encourage seniors who have not yet completed an application to Cedarville to apply by November 1, and we'll waive the $30 application fee!
