Welcome to Student Success and Engagement

Our goal is to help maintain and promote a community of scholars where each individual has the opportunity to develop their potential and explore their talents and interests in and out of the classroom. Cedar Crest College stresses the importance of holistic wellness of the student in a way that prepares them for success in all facets of life.

Student Success and Engagement consists of the following offices:

By providing emergency resources to students in need, they are more likely to succeed academically and persist to graduation. While the college cannot provide everything these students may need, we can support their learning by eliminating barriers to their success.

Going to an event sanctioned by Cedar Crest that will cause you to miss class? Use the attached form to notify instructors about planned absences due to College sanctioned events. This form is designed to assist students in talking with faculty regarding an absence for any college sponsored event.

Students should understand that at the time of absence they should be making sufficient academic progress within the class.

Submit this form to request that an absence notification be sent to your faculty members. If you have a doctor’s note or other documentation explaining the reason for missing a class, you may attach that documentation when submitting this form. 

Once you submit this form, we will send a notice to the faculty you indicate on the form. This notice will include general information (for example: "was absent for medical reasons", or "was absent due to transportation issues") but no specific information about the reason for your absence. You have the option to share more specific information with your professors if you would like. 

Submission of this form does not excuse your absence. Your professor(s) will determine if it is an excused or unexcused absence, or if you are permitted to make up any missed classwork or other assignments.
