Student Handbook

Student Handbook

The Student Handbook website is designed to provide easy access to information that is relevant to all students of 鶹 and Moravian Theological Seminary (also referred to as "鶹" or "the University"). Although the intended audience of the Handbook is all currently enrolled students, some sections may not be applicable to all populations. When appropriate, this is noted.

The information in the Handbook is subject to change from time to time as deemed necessary by the University in order to fulfill its role and mission or to accommodate circumstances beyond its control. Any such changes may be implemented without prior notice and without obligation and, unless specified otherwise, are effective when made. Efforts will be made, however, to inform the student body of significant changes in a timely manner.

All students should review the Handbook in its entirety and are expected to be familiar with its content. This can be accomplished by navigating the menus on the left side of the screen and following links to important policies and information. The gray box at the bottom of the screen will always include important links, regardless of where you are in the Handbook website. 

Below are some highlights intended for ease of use, but should not be reviewed solely as a substitute to reviewing the entire Handbook. 

Handbook Highlights

  • All students are accountable to the Academic Code of Conduct and the Student Code of Conduct. All recognized student organizations (RSOs) are additionally accountable to the Student Organization Code of Conduct.
  • Residence Life and Housing Policies apply to residents and their visitors. This means that commuter students should be familiar with these policies to prepare themselves when visiting friends at a University residence.
  • Learning assistance is available in a variety of formats. Tutoring and writing assistance are available as well as disability accommodations.
  • Parking policies apply to all students. 
  • Logging into or otherwise connecting to the campus network implies acceptance of the institution's policies on acceptable use of computing resources.
  • Email is the official mode of communication for the University and students are expected to check their University email account daily.
  • Monitor your student account on to ensure you meet your financial obligations. Aid recipients are also expected to know and comply with the rules governing financial aid.
