All New Students
Mandatory Health Forms
Have you submitted your health forms yet? At Cedar Crest College we focus on the health and wellness of our students. All new students must complete the mandatory health forms prior to starting classes in the fall.
New student health forms are due by June 15th. If you enrolled at Cedar Crest after this date your forms are due two weeks after your acceptance. The forms are located within MyCedarCrest. Once you log on, click on the "New Students" link on the "Student Affairs" tab. Please note that some information can be completed right online. Some forms need to be completed and sent back to the College. Please make a copy of your health forms for your personal records.
On Campus Housing and Meal Plan Application
Planning to live on campus? Then complete your on campus housing and meal plan application. When you sent in your enrollment deposit, you submitted $200 if you planned to live on campus, and $100 if you planned to commute. The additional $100 was your housing deposit. You must now complete your housing and meal plan application so that we can begin the assignment process. If you did not originally include your housing deposit with your enrollment deposit, but want to live on campus, that’s okay too! Complete the application and we’ll take care of the rest. To complete the housing application, log onto MyCedarCrest and click on the "New Student" link within the "Student Affairs" tab. For more information about living on campus, and our Residence Life Office, click here.
Fall Residence Hall Move In
New student move in for the fall semester is Thursday, August 23, 2012. More information coming as we get closer to the date.
Commuter Life (and meal plans)
Commuters are important and active members of the Cedar Crest College community. Even though you will not be living on campus, it can still be your "home away from home." In the Tompkins College Center there is a lounge just for commuters, complete with a kitchen. Our Commuter Activities Board plans great events, often in conjunction with other organizations. There is a lot available to make sure that you are as connected as possible during your time at Cedar Crest. To learn more about commuter life and what’s available, visit our Commuter Life website.
Cedar Crest offers great meal plan options for commuter students. Enjoy "all you care to eat" at the dining hall or ala carte at our Falcon’s Nest. Meal plan benefits include enjoying additional "Falcon Dollars," not to mention not having to worry about pulling out cash or a credit card when you are on campus and want a bite. The meal plan makes it easier to get together with friends on campus or have dinner with a study group. For more information about the meal plans that are available, click here.
To request a meal plan, log onto MyCedarCrest, and click on the "New Students" link within "Student Affairs."
Financial Aid (Student Aid, Scholarships, Term Bill, etc.)
Do you have questions about your financial aid award, scholarship, term bill, etc? Looking for a financial aid form that you need to fill out? Many of the answers to your questions can be found on MyCedarCrest. You don't even have to log in to access it! Look for the Student Financial Services link on the left.

Parking on Campus
At Cedar Crest College there is no fee for students to park on campus! Vehicles must, however, be registered and park in designated spaces on campus. For more information about how to register your car and where to park, click here.
At Cedar Crest, we believe the success of each student is due to a partnership with the student, College and family. That is why it is important for you to know about FERPA. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal privacy law that gives parents certain protections with regard to their children's education records, such as report cards, transcripts, disciplinary records, contact and family information, and class schedules. Both students and parents should become familiar with FERPA. For more information, log onto MyCedarCrest and click on the "New Student" link within Student Affairs. In the FERPA section you will see additional information about what FERPA is, and how it pertains to both students and guardians. In addition, it allows students to complete a form which dictates what specific information you would like to have shared and to whom you would like to share. You can change this at any time.
