Before admissions FAQs

Crown College is a space for students to pursue their passion while growing in their faith in Jesus. We focus on three core values at Crown:

  • Jesus only
  • Be known
  • Fully Equipped

Students have the opportunity to focus on their relationship with Jesus during their entire college experience. Whether they are in chapel, grabbing lunch, in the classroom, or during one of our events, we integrate our love for Jesus into everything we do.

During their time at College, students will be known not only by their friends and classmates but by our intentional faculty and staff. All students have the opportunity to be mentored by a mature Christ-follower.

We want our graduates to find success in the world. That’s why we offer 40+ degrees that allow the student to grow in their area of passion. We go beyond theory to provide practical application that students can take into the workforce right after graudation.

We are associated with the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Though our students come from a wide variety of denominational backgrounds.
