Greetings from Crown College!

College is an exciting time in your life and Crown is an exciting place to be! We are quickly growing into one of the most innovative Christ-centered private colleges in the nation. Year after year, we are rated as one of the best colleges in the Midwest. Why should you consider Crown in your journey? Four mission-driven reasons tell the story:

Focus on Christ: Each of our students has the opportunity to earn a second degree in Christian Studies, empowering them to minister to people wherever God leads — from a corporate CEO to a mission nurse in Africa to a teacher in suburban Minneapolis.

Excellence in Education: Our professors are experts in their fields and nearly all hold doctorate degrees. Yet they do so much more than teach — they are intentional about serving as a mentor, coach and model. This is one reason why Crown College is ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the Best Midwest Regional Colleges in the nation.

Opportunities Abound: Attending Crown offers unparalleled ways to get involved. You can excel in the classroom while singing in the choir, participating in NCAA Division III athletics, being a student leader, attending small group bible studies, embarking on mission trips — all at the same time. The possibilities are unlimited!

Affordability: Crown is one of the ten most affordable private Christian colleges in the Midwest and we recognize the critical role finances often play in discerning God’s path for your college education. But we also believe it's not simply all about the money — it’s about what you receive for your investment. Therefore, we strive to provide a place of academic rigor at a tremendous value. With 98% of our students receiving financial aid, we commit to work with you and your unique situation.

Take a moment to apply today. Even better, I invite you to visit our campus to get a deeper perspective of what it’s like to be a student at Crown and to see for yourself what sets Crown apart from other Christian colleges.

As you search for a college that is right for you, I encourage you to prayerfully consider making Crown your home. Our desire is to make leaders for God’s kingdom. Crown students are called to serve and prepared to lead. I’m confident that God will impact your life at Crown College. Enjoy the journey!
