At this time, we have a lot going on virtually so make sure you check our Instagram page for all the up to date events happening this term “@audstudentlife“.
Our services include counseling services, student activities, academic advising and support, Alumni services, Career services, as well as athletic programs and residential life.

I would also like to encourage you to familiarize yourself with the student handbook that is available online at https://www.aud.edu/aud-publications. The handbook outlines your rights and your responsibilities as an AUD student. It has all the information you will need to be able to access all the resources that AUD has to offer.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, AUD has implemented an online orientation program for both students and parents. Our online program is a complete orientation experience! The orientation will be taking place on two separate steps.
