Student Services


Cumberland University has established an Office of Student Affairs to facilitate the success experiences of all individuals enrolled in the institution.  Persons taking classes in an alternative delivery location are both invited and encouraged to avail themselves of the programs and professional staff located in Lebanon, and because classes in the M.S.P. degree program are taught in near-by Davidson County, the distance from the main campus is not prohibitive for enrollees to use, on a regular basis, the campus services.

 

When appropriate, certain student affairs/services functions can be delivered to the alternative delivery locations.  Since the advisor to this program has both educational training and employment experience in this area of university management, he can represent the institution in responding to the questions and needs of the students enrolled in this program.

 

On-site student services include academic advisement and registration.  For many classes, the advisor or professor will bring the textbooks and other required classroom materials, for student purchase, to the location of the class.

 

The Program Advisor is available by telephone or e-mail to facilitate any needed inter-actions between the student and personnel located on the campus.  Faculty teaching in the program supply each student with both home and office telephone numbers and encourage the enrollee to contact them with questions and concerns or if special assistance is needed in their particular course.

 

Campus based student services include admissions, the book and supply store, counseling services (both career and personal), enrollment verification, financial aid and scholarship information, the library (including reference assistance), orientation (including the making of an I.D. card), placement services, transcript and grade report requests, plus veterans certification.

 

Previous and current students enrolled in this program have come to campus regularly for sporting, musical, and theatrical events.  Admission to many of these functions is free with a validated I.D. card.  Graduate students are encouraged to participate in the athletic and cultural life of the University.

 

For assistance in student services or other areas of the degree program, the advisor serves as the contact individual.  Regular dialog with the advisor is encouraged.
