Dole settles civil suits related to listeria outbreak

Cedarville University sets another enrollment record


Enrollment at Cedarville University, at a record high for the fifth consecutive year, is being led by growth in its professional programs, the university said Monday.

Enrollment is 3,459 undergraduate, graduate and online students, 73 more than fall 2012, the university said.

Roscoe Smith, associate vice president for university admissions, said most of the increase was in graduate students. The university's doctor of pharmacy program now has two classes of graduate students, 101 in all. The master of business administration program, with 15, has its first students.

Smith said Cedarville also continues to attract many undergraduates.

"The freshmen classes over the last four years have been the largest we've ever had," he said. Smith attributes the trend to financial aid changes the university made four years ago to make Cedarville more affordable. The university offers $21.7 million in scholarships, and 98 percent of new freshmen received financial aid last year.

This fall, Cedarville also announced there will be no tuition increase next year.

Cedarville's graduate programs, including the master of science in nursing and master of education, will continue to grow as online and hybrid classes allow students to enroll off campus, he said.

Many high school students also dual enroll in online courses, according to the university.

Cedarville, a Baptist university located east of Dayton, has students in more than 100 areas of study.
