Student Success

The Office of Student Success serves the non-academic needs of Palo Alto University students from the time of enrollment at PAU through graduation.  Student Success provides opportunities for student involvement, including student activities and student government as well as assisting international students, veteran students, and students who request special accommodations. Student Success team members look forward to welcoming new students at orientation.
