New Student FAQs
Perhaps you’ve been wondering ...
How do I register for classes?
The Office of the Registrar at Cedarville will schedule you for your classes for the fall semester of your freshman year. Taking into consideration your major(s) selection, they will be placing you into the appropriate classes. You should be receiving your tentative class schedule for the fall semester during the week of July 10 through CedarInfo.
When will I know how my other college credits/CLEP will transfer?
If you have sent in your official transcripts and/or CLEP test results, you will be receiving a full credit evaluation in your Registration Packet upon your arrival in August.
If you have not already sent your official transcripts or CLEP test results in, please request them to be sent directly from the institution you attended to the Office of the Registrar at Cedarville. In requesting CLEP scores to be sent to Cedarville, please visit the College Board website
Please direct any questions or concerns regarding transfer credits or CLEP results to the Office of the Registrar.
When will I know how my AP credits will transfer?
