The Center for Lifelong Learning Overview

The Center for Lifelong Learning provides information on admission to all adult students. The Center is located in Blaney Hall, Room 105 and may be reached by phone at 610-740-3770 , by email at lifelong@cedarcrest.edu; or by fax at 610-740-3786.

High school transcripts, GED records, and previous college, university and other post-secondary institution transcripts are required for applicants seeking a degree. An interview is requested. Students who have completed academic work at other accredited institutions are encouraged to apply for transfer credit.

Women and men who graduated from high school more than four years ago and who have earned their GED should contact the Center for Lifelong Learning. Adult women may pursue any of the College's majors or programs through evening, weekend or daytime study. Men may pursue any bachelor's degree, certification and/or certificate program offered through evening and/or weekend study and are welcome to study nursing and nuclear medicine by day.

Lifelong Learning students are advised by an admissions representative in the Center for Lifelong Learning until they formally declare an academic major. At the time a student declares an academic major, the Chair of the department in which the student plans to major assigns a faculty advisor.

Non-Matriculated and Visiting Students

A non-matriculated student takes courses at Cedar Crest without the intention of pursuing a degree. In the event that a course section reaches its enrollment maximum, matriculated students are given preference over non-matriculated students. For information, contact the Center for Lifelong Learning.
Traditional age male visiting students may take no more than 15 evening/weekend credits total as visiting students during any one or more fall and/or spring semesters for the total time they are traditional age. Because of a reciprocal agreement with LVAIC colleges, this limit does not apply to cross-registering students. There is no credit limit for traditional age male visiting students during summer, winter, and May sessions. Students who have been dismissed from the College for any reason may not return as visiting students. They must be re-admitted before taking any further credits.
