Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.37 Average Rating
Yes, there are cheaper Christian schools out there, but I think Cedarville is definitely worth the cost!
Easton, PA
The cost is prohibitively expensive for many students - some cannot come back second semester or are forced to transfer to other schools in order to save money. The school has been improving on this by offering more scholarship dollars to students in the last few years, but this is certainly an on-going struggle. If you can afford to go to Cedarville, it is worth every penny! Great students, competent faculty, and premium facilities make this institution first-class in every way.
Lewis from Goshen, OH
It is expensive, but they have pretty good scholarships available.
Angelica from Avon, IN
While it is really expensive, I think the price is worth it. Being a good Christian school that has great teaching and many opportunities is great. They also supply a desktop in every room that has many great programs on it. Overall, despite the price, which most certainly will put you in debt, the opportunities far outweigh the negative aspects.
Jeffery from Windham, NH
Cedarville may not be the cheapest school but for what you get for your money it's worth it. They offer the best, the chapel speakers are amazing. They keep it new, current and exciting by switching things up.
Kendra from Proctor, VT
Although it is a little pricey, I feel very confident that the experience will more than make up for the cost!
Elizabeth from Bridgton, ME
Although Cedarville is on the pricey side as a Christian University, the education received there is worth every penny. Cedarville is ranked first among student satisfaction reports, and from personal experience, I can say that attending this school is well worth the price.
Melody from De Pere, WI
The cost for tuition and board at Cedarville University each year is about 30,000. The price is costly but what a student gets in return is priceless. A Christ-centered atmosphere, a good education, lifelong friends, career experiences are priceless things that one cannot obtain anywhere and cannot put a price on. Sometimes I wonder myself, Hannah, why do you attend such an expensive school? If you would attend a public university you would not have to work at a part time job and you would not have to struggle to pay for school. Although I do have to work hard to pay for school, I fully believe that the education I receive and the lifelong experiences I am gaining is well worth the sacrifice of hard work. If you could experience a day on the campus of Cedarville University, you would realize that attending this university is well worth the cost.
Hannah from Colorado Springs CO
Cedarville does give quality classes that are definitely worth the money, but they are a little bit stingy when it comes to handing out scholarships.
