Incoming Transfer Students
What kind of orientation is available for transfer students?
Recognizing that transfer students come to Cedar Crest with significant college experience, and may have already attended an orientation program for first year students, we strive to offer programs and information just for you.
Because the summer orientation program that is planned for first year students is a comprehensive and fun introduction to Cedar Crest, a few transfer students ask to participate each year. Truth be told, we would be thrilled if all transfer students participated! Therefore, while transfer students are not required to attend the summer orientation program you are welcome and invited to join us in June. Our Fall Orientation program contains programs and activities for both first year and transfer students

Creating a Fall Course Schedule
After you enroll at Cedar Crest College as a transfer student by virtue of submitting your enrollment deposit, you will receive the name of your academic advisor in the mail. Students typically receive their advisor information within one week. As soon as you receive this information, you may contact your advisor to develop a course schedule.
