Investing in Your Future is Affordable

Everyone’s financial situation is different. That’s why we work with you to evaluate your options for your individualized financial aid package. We offer both need-based and merit-based assistance to help you manage and finance your investment in your education.

In addition to leveraging federal, state, and institutionally funded financial aid, the price of college becomes a lot easier to manage when you receive grant and scholarship assistance. Our team of financial aid administrators can connect you with a wide range of non-loan assistance possibilities.

STAR – State Tuition Access Rate

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 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.

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.
