One Thousand Days Transformed - The Campaign for Cedarville

Start your Cedarville experience off right!

Join fellow incoming Cedarville freshmen for WAVE, a two-week residential academic program that will prepare you to succeed in college-level academics. You’ll learn valuable skills as you get acclimated to campus and build a sense of community with your future classmates. After successfully completing the program, you will be awarded a yearly renewable $2,000 WAVE scholarship* ($8,000 over your four years as a student)!  This will be added to any other financial aid you may receive.

*All WAVE students are required to complete the WAVE program expectations and the WAVE class requirements by the due dates in order to qualify for the scholarship.  A $2,000 scholarship is awarded yearly to students who maintain a 2.5 GPA at Cedarville University. The WAVE program cost can not be applied toward this scholarship.

June 9–21, 2024 on the campus of Cedarville University

Cost: $1,000 for the two-week program.  This includes all meals, lodging, and most activities. Transportation to and from Cedarville University is not included.

WAVE is by invitation only and is intentionally limited to the first 50 students to ensure the best experience for all.

Registration is due by May 6, 2024.

NOTE: If you have received a WAVE invitation but do not have the specific password for this event please contact the Campus Experience office at or 937-766-4444.
