Student support services

The University of Divinity Student Support Services Policy advises students to ensure their course advisors are aware of their needs, to participate in orientation events and to avail themselves of student support services recommended by their College.

Academic support services


ALC holds an annual orientation week for all new on campus students. The orientation program covers various aspects of study and life at ALC.

The orientation booklet is published on the handbooks page and the program on the Calendars and timetables page.
