Keeping You Updated – March 27, 2020
Friday, March 27, 2020
As we continue in this time of remote (online) instruction with most of our faculty and staff also working from home, we have been sending daily emails to the campus community to keep us connected and informed. To ensure parents are also receiving relevant information, we will send you a weekly update with highlights from the our daily communications. If you would like to receive the daily updates personally, please subscribe to our COVID-19 blog.
March 23-27 Highlights
Move Out FAQs
We’ve added FAQs to address common questions about the move-out process. You’ll find the link under “Questions” at cedarville.edu/MoveOut.
COVID-19 Town Halls
Cedarville will host weekly Town Hall sessions featuring our faculty experts to provide helpful information as we navigate this unprecedented time. Join us on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. on Facebook or at cedarville.edu/COVID-19Forum. All town halls will also be archived.
Seniors who had their photos taken can still order prints by mailing in their order form. Those without order forms can submit a request to the photographer at mjmphoto.com. On the photographer's site, click the Contact Us tab and complete the form to request photos.
Paying Your Student's Bill
The Cashiers Office is closed, but the staff is still available to assist with payments:
- Students who are still on campus, can place their check in the secure drop slot located in the hallway outside the Cashiers Office, SSC 130. Please include your name and seven-digit ID# on your check or on the envelope provided by the drop slot. A cashier will process the payment within a few days.
- Students who are off campus, should log in to self service and navigate to the “Make a Payment” page to use our free, secure, eCheck, electronic ACH/EFT payment option.
- You can also choose to make a credit/debit card payment.
- Checks may be mailed to Cedarville University, ATTN: Cashiers, 251 North Main Street, Cedarville, 45314. Checks should include student name & ID#.
Please email email@example.com, if you have any questions or concerns about your student account or payment plan. A cashier will respond within one business day.
U.S. Census Reporting
Who would have guessed that the 2020 Census would be impacted by COVID-19, but like everything else, it has! Where should students be counted — at Cedarville or at their home? Here is the official word: The 2020 Census requires that students list the address where they spend the majority of their time, which for full-time students means the University address (if on-campus) or local Cedarville address (if off-campus). The online census form asks for a student's address as of April 1. Even with the current situation, full-time students should still list their school address on the Census. Visit the Census website for more information.
Taking Courses for Credit/No Credit
Students should carefully review the information from Dr. Mach, Vice President for Academics, before making a decision to take a class for credit/no credit this term. We also recommend contacting the student's academic advisor with any questions.
As we are finalizing room and board refunds this week, here is an update on how this will affect current meal plans. All meal plan refunds were calculated as of March 12, even for students who were on campus and ate meals beyond that date. Going forward: All meal plans are being turned off as of March 26, except for those students who are still living on campus.
Students who remain on campus will be able to continue to obtain their meals from the dining hall.
Students who return to campus to move out of their residence halls will be required to purchase meals if they want to obtain a take-out meal from the dining hall.
As shared in previous communications, room and board refunds will be calculated and credited to student accounts by March 27. Once the credit has been applied to any outstanding balance, students may request a cash reimbursement.
Theology II Now Available Online
As part of our online Bible Minor Project, we have just released all Theology II lectures online, which are available for free to anyone. It's a great way to follow along with your student's Bible minor. Using Scripture and classic and contemporary theological literature, Dr. Jeremy Kimble will introduce you to the doctrines of Christ, salvation, the Holy Spirit, and last things. You'll discover how these doctrines relate to your life today and learn to defend what you believe. Visit our Theology II page today and start exploring! You can also find videos for the previously released Old Testament Literature. We pray you are blessed by the teaching of God's Word.
We invite you to join us for chapel each weekday at 10 a.m. via Facebook Live University website. We have scheduled live chapels on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with Tuesdays and Thursdays featuring favorite messages from our chapel archive. Dr. White is scheduled to speak this coming Monday, March 30.
