Orientation and Student Handbook


The Orientation sessions are mandatory for new students and occur in two sessions; the day before Fall and Spring quarters begin and the first day of the quarter in the late afternoon.  The Orientation session one is an opportunity to ask faculty questions about the program and meet other new students and is usually held face to face.  The Advising/Degree Works session two instructs students about creating their Plan of Study and is held on Zoom.  Before the sessions, new students should review the AHE Student Handbook (with Essential Functions) and watch the Plans for Degree Works video.

As the start date of the quarter approaches, new students will receive an Orientation/Advising email from AHE faculty and staff confirming the day/time and location/Zoom link for the Orientation and Advising/Degree Works sessions, some advising about registration, as well as information about parking (for the face to face session).   

Student Handbook and Essential Functions

The Student Handbook is a great resource for all students as they progress through the program. Be sure to review the link below. 

All students must comply with the Department's Essential Functions. See link below and ensure you read it as part of participating in the program and as a student within the Department of Health and Community Studies.
