Year End Tax Information w/ pencil

Cedarville University is required to provide students a 1098-T tax form for tuition payments by January 31. This tax form will be provided electronically. We will notify your student when this link is available.

If you would like to receive a copy, your student must first grant you parental access. Once you have been granted access, you will be notified when the form becomes available. Please verify that we have your current email to prevent delays in receiving this notification.

Students who worked on campus this year will receive a copy of their W-2 form in early January. By law, we cannot give parents access to a student’s W-2 form. Students can elect to receive an electronic version of the form through Dayforce. They were previously emailed instructions on how to do this. For additional information, they can reference our tax information FAQ.

Friday, December 9, 2022

Boardless logo

A team of Integrated Business Core (IBC) students has created Boardless, a student-run business offering flexible, stick-on whiteboards for any surface! The IBC allows students to practice what they are learning in class by running a real business, including creating, marketing, and selling a product. As a nonprofit, for-charity business, Boardless is providing a quality product while also raising money for Back2Back Ministries.

Boardless' flexible, stick-on whiteboard is very low-profile and sticks to nearly any smooth surface, allowing you to make notes on your wall, desk, or other surface without taking up virtually any work space!  Save space and save paper ‒ just Stick, Scribble, and Repeat.

Boardless is offering a Christmas sale → 20% off orders of $50 or more. Don't wait -- the shop closes Sunday, December 11!

Check out their website to learn more and support Boardless!

Founders Hall in the SpringIt’s hard to believe, but the academic year is coming to a close in just a few weeks. We’ll be praying along with you as your student takes final exams and prepares to head home for the summer (or wherever God is taking them!). As you make plans for picking up your student, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • The last contract meal for the semester is dinner on Friday, May 6.
  • Students must be out of the residence halls by Saturday, May 7, at 5 p.m. (8 p.m. for graduating seniors).
  • Students are able to leave before Saturday if their exam schedule allows. They will receive more detailed move-out instructions from their RD.
  • Parking will be at a premium Saturday due to two commencement ceremonies (10 a.m. and 2 p.m.). If you plan to pick up your student on Saturday, you may want to come very early.

If your student will be graduating, thank you for letting us invest in his or her 1,000 days at Cedarville. It has been our pleasure to serve your family!
