Understanding Your Educational Investment

We recognize that navigating the financial process of college can be complex. That’s why we’re here to assist you in finding ways to make our exceptional education affordable for you. We see you, and we’re dedicated to your success.

Financial Aid Programs

Financial aid at Cedar Crest is typically a combination of merit scholarships/awards and need-based financial aid from federal, state, and/or college financial aid programs that are based on family financial information. Not from PA? Out-of-state doesn’t mean out of reach. Many programs are applicable to students who reside in other states.

If you’ve put in the work to be academically successful during high school, we believe affordability shouldn’t be a barrier to an exceptional education with extraordinary experiences. If you qualify as a STAR student, we will match the in-state rate of your state’s flagship public institution.

Financial Aid Policies

Federal and state regulations, as well as Cedar Crest College’s policy, require that you maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward your degree to receive financial aid. We will evaluate your record after each academic year, to make sure you remain eligible as you work toward your degree.
