CHRIST-CENTERED – A CURRICULUM AND COMMUNITY THAT IS FOCUSED ON CHRIST

The level of commitment to a Christ-centered education sets Crown College apart from other Christian colleges today.

Crown has a legacy, since 1916, of preparing students to serve and influence the world. Our students, faculty, staff and administration are passionate about their faith – it is woven into the fabric of every course, activity and event at Crown. The campus is alive with prayer, service, student ministries and supportive friendships that build up the body of believers at Crown and prepare students for a life-long journey with God.

As part of this commitment, nearly every student of Crown’s School of Arts and Sciences will graduate with a dual major and has the opportunity to take a Bible-related course every semester – so that every student is prepared to serve and influence the world in all facets of their personal and professional lives after graduation.

Crown College is a member of the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU). This group of less than 120 accredited institutions, in the U.S. and Canada, holds a strong commitment to Christian higher education, hires full-time Christian faculty and administration and has sound finances.

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE – PREPARING STUDENTS FOR A WIDE RANGE OF PROFESSIONAL CAREERS

Crown College is consistently ranked among the “Best Midwest Regional Colleges,” according to U.S. News & World Report. In addition, Crown’s School of Online Studies & Graduate School rank among the nation’s “Top Online Programs,” according to U.S. News & World Report.

With more than 40 accredited degree programs, international missions and honors programs, Crown offer students rich learning opportunities that will equip students with knowledge, skills and relevant real-world experiences to be effective in career, ministry and life.

Every opportunity for academic excellence is engaged at Crown – small class sizes, low student-to-faculty ratios, rich learning environments and passionate faculty. Crown’s dedicated professors – comprised of PhDs, pastors, business executives, theologians, counselors and professionals – represent some of the finest educators anywhere and students are challenged at every level.

Crown College is accredited by the North Central Association of The Higher Learning Commission, and Crown’s nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and is approved by the Minnesota Board of Nursing. The first-time success rate of NCLEX-RN candidates graduating from Crown’s Nursing Department, in the last two years, is better than 94 percent.
