Student support services

The University of Divinity Student Support Services Policy requires students to ensure their course advisors are aware of their support needs and avail themselves of support services recommended by the college. Students must also participate in orientation activities as required.


Orientation to the various aspects of study and life at ALC occurs via an introductory webinar and ALC and/or UD online orientation module(s). New students are asked to work through the orientation modules and complete the quiz prior to commencing their first unit of study.
