Reasons adult students love SAGE
The Cedar Crest College School of Adult and Graduate Education (SAGE) is at the forefront of providing educational programming designed specifically with the adult student in mind. SAGE offers more online courses than any other educational institution in the Lehigh Valley, and we offer the most generous credit-transfer policy in the surrounding area. Cedar Crest College also offers the following valuable benefits for adult learners:
An Esteemed Education
Cedar Crest College holds a reputation, both locally and nationally, for graduating qualified, accomplished individuals with a strong base of knowledge and practical experience. Employers not only hire Cedar Crest College graduates, they actively seek them.
Rewarding Faculty Relationships
Many of our classes are taught by full-time faculty with years of expertise in their fields. These same faculty members will be your personal academic advisors and career-planning counselors as you work toward finishing your degree.
Generous Transfer Credit Policies
We respect and value your academic achievements. If you have completed an associate’s degree from a community college or 90 credits at a regionally accredited four-year college, you will not be required to take any additional general education courses. You also can transfer up to 68 credits from your community college.
Our admissions counselors specialize in assisting adult students and will guide you through every step of the admissions process. Experienced financial aid advisors will explain all of your financial options, including veteran’s benefits and tuition reimbursement plans.
Degree Completion Maps
We have a wide variety of scheduling options including online, hybrid and accelerated courses. If you want to study at a more traditional pace, we also have plenty of semester-length courses and programs to choose from. Our degree completion maps will help you understand all of your options and find the approach and pacing that works best for you.
Academic and Technical Support
We provide year-round academic services tailored to your needs and interests. We offer online and on-campus tutorial support in writing, math and science. We provide technical support for your online courses and can even help you with software such as Word, Powerpoint and Excel.
A Welcoming Campus Environment
Cedar Crest College is a registered national arboretum with beautiful places to walk, study, relax or bring your family. We also offer an extremely safe and secure campus staffed by a full-time professional security force who will even walk you to your car after class.
Lifelong Career Counseling
As a graduate of the SAGE program at Cedar Crest, you will be entitled to ongoing career counseling after graduation. An investment in a Cedar Crest education is an investment in your future—and the benefits last long after you receive your degree.
