About Cedar Crest College

Since its founding in 1867, Cedar Crest College has taken a bold approach to education - creating a college and a curriculum designed for women who want to achieve at the highest levels! Recognizing the multi-dimensional nature of students, Cedar Crest College is dedicated to the education of the next generation of women leaders by preparing the whole student for life in the global community.

Cedar Crest also provides a wealth of opportunity for non-traditional and graduate students. Our co-educational School of Adult and Graduate Education(SAGE) demonstrates our commitment to education at all levels.
