Student Services

The Office of Student Services serves the non-academic needs of Palo Alto University students from the time they decide to attend PAU to the day they graduate and beyond. This includes assisting international students, students who request special accommodations, as well as planning new student orientation, commencement, and special events for current students and alumni.  Feel free to also ask us about resources in the Palo Alto/bay area community.
