Academic and Student Affairs

Welcome to The Office of Academic and Student Affairs

The Office of Academic and Student Affairs is privileged to work with students at every stage of their degree program. In the beginning, we advise students on certificate and degree program options and guide them through the application process. Once enrolled, we help students register for classes and gain practical experience in the field. Over the course of their degree, students are introduced to career development programming, as well as resources to prepare them for the college’s comprehensive exam and to be Certified in Public Health (CPH). We realize there may be some bumps along the way and are here to help students navigate academic and personal concerns, too. Our greatest accomplishment is verifying students for graduation and a job well done!

Academic Affairs serves prospective and current students in the College of Public Health. Services include:
  • Pre-admission Counseling and Advising
  • Course Registration

  • Admission and Application
  • Comprehensive Exams
  • Graduation
