Student Affairs

The Division of Student Affairs serves the non-academic needs of Palo Alto University students from the time they decide to enroll to the day they graduate and beyond. Student Affairs provides support for student involvement--including student activities and student government--as well as assisting international students, veteran students, and students who request special accommodations. Student Affairs is also involved in the planning of new student orientations, commencement, and special events. Feel free to also ask us about resources in the Palo Alto/Bay Area community.
