March 22, 2019As high school seniors and their parents sit down to finalize a college decision before the May 1 deadline, one topic is nearly always part of the discussion: cost.
While many universities — including Cedarville — are taking intentional steps to make a college education more affordable, 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 six-month postgraduation final destination survey, 98.4% of Cedarville's class of 2018 reported being employed or in graduate school during that time period. This is not a one-year anomaly: Cedarville's five-year average is 97.3%.
These placement results are 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. Read the Q-and-A in today's post, originally published in an issue of Cedarville Magazine, and see what parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville.
P.S. If your student has been accepted to Cedarville for fall 2019, be sure to pay your reservation deposit soon to ensure his or her place in the incoming class!Read More »

As you are considering Cedarville University for your student, we thought you might like to see a powerful video showing how a group of Cedarville students showed the love of Jesus to local children in a very practical way.
Last fall, students from our School of Nursing partnered with a local ministry called Shoes for the Shoeless, an organization that provides shoes to kids who are in need. Our nursing students worked with the Springfield, Ohio, public schools to identify children who would benefit from this ministry and then visited those schools to fit needy children with a new pair of shoes. This partnership has been a powerful reminder of how the Gospel compels Cedarville students to meet physical needs while sharing the hope they have found in Jesus.
Watch the video and be encouraged for the opportunities Cedarville University will give your student to be the hands and feet of Jesus in whatever major they choose.
