Welcome to Western Seminary

Welcome to Western Seminary

Dear Students,

We are thrilled to have you join the Western Seminary community!

Your journey as a student at Western Seminary is designed to help you learn more about what gospel-centered transformation looks like in your own life as you seek to promote such transformation in the lives of those around you. 

As part of your student experience, we provide a variety of resources in this Student Handbook. This handbook provides necessary policy, safety, and general guidelines for your time as a student both inside and outside the classroom. By outlining clear expectations and guidelines, we believe it will set up our students, staff, and faculty for a successful experience. 

As situations arise, we want to ensure you know who the best people and departments are to connect with during your time as a student. You will find the necessary contact information regarding specific resources and processes throughout the pages within. 

Again, we are glad you are part of this community and are excited that you have joined us on this journey together.

Joyfully serving,
Your Student Services Team
