Welcome first year students and transfer students entering Cedar Crest College for the fall of 2016! Soon it will be time to join your new classmates during your first official activity as an incoming student at Cedar Crest College, Student Orientation and Registration (S.O.A.R.).
It's an exciting time to be at the Crest! Everyone here at the College has a vested interest in you making a successful academic, educational, and social transition to our wonderful, close-knit community.
This page provides helpful information about our mandatory S.O.A.R. program, deadlines and various services that are available to you.
To register for S.O.A.R., log onto MyCedarCrest, click on the Student Affairs tab at the top and then the New Student Information link on the left. Registration is necessary to prepare academic documents and advisor meeting times. Deadline to register is May 22, 2015.
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, click on the Student Affairs tab at the top and then the New Student Information link on the left. 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 s/he would like to have shared and to whom s/he would like to share. Students can change this at any time.
