Welcome to Student Services

Mission Statement

The Student Services Office strives to develop, implement, and maintain an appropriate array of strategies and professional services that support and encourage student success in achieving academic, career and personal goals.

Values Statement

The Student Services Office values the provision of support services in an atmosphere that acknowledges and respects the uniqueness of each person. A spirit of collegial responsibility and common purpose enhances this professional atmosphere. Through continuous assessment and adaptation to the changing needs of the students we serve and the institution itself, the Student Services Office seeks to foster success and ensure the quality of each student's experience.


Student Services is responsible for student-related administrative tasks and provides and coordinates a variety of academic and non-academic services. Our goal is to provide services that will enhance the academic and personal well-being of our students. We also serve as a liaison between students and faculty/administration.

The Student Services Office provides administrative assistance from pre-admissions through graduation. This includes such services as recruitment, admissions, registration, financial aid and scholarship information, career counseling (pre & post veterinary education), event coordination (White Coat ceremony, Oath and Hooding ceremony), assistance with campus services (student health, counseling center, legal services) and other programs that address the needs of our students.

We hope that your association with our office and the college will be pleasant and resourceful.
