Orientation and Student Handbook


The Orientation session is mandatory for new students and occurs the day before Fall and Spring quarters begin.  During COVID-19, the session is held via Zoom and is usually held from 4:00-5:30pm.  The Orientation session is an opportunity to ask faculty questions about the program and meet other new students.  Before the session, new students should review the Student HandbookEssential Functions and Campus Support Services and Resource Guide (links below).

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 for the Orientation session, some advising about registration, as well as information about parking (once we are meeting face to face again).   

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.
