Student Life and Student Resources
Student Life is here to care about the whole of your life both inside and outside the classroom. We collaboratively facilitate a culture of belonging and value for each student, where your learning finds spaces for integration and this Seminary experience becomes a valuable part of your formation.
We set the table of hospitality for new students through New Student Orientation and offer opportunities to gather as a community in worship, fellowship, and dialogue. We walk with you when unexpected circumstances arise, and we will support you to think through your options, getting the help you need to flourish and succeed.
We exist to:
- Care holistically for students
- Cultivate transformative community
- Connect students with support avenues for thriving
There can be occasions when the stress during seminary becomes great and it becomes necessary to seek help from a qualified professional counselor. The Student Life office has made arrangements with several local Christian counselors to provide a limited number of counseling sessions for seminary students at a very low cost. Please contact the Student Life department for additional information.
We are here to support our students and help them succeed. Students who have an ADA recognized disability and require special arrangements in order to participate in Seminary classes and programs, utilize Denver Seminary equipment and learning resources, and/or have access to Denver Seminary facilities, should send a request in writing to the dean of students.
The request should include: 1) a description of the specific need; 2) problem or barrier that the student has encountered or expects to encounter; 3) a description of the student’s circumstances, including a discussion of any relevant disability; 4) medical documentation verifying the disability; 5) a description of the special arrangements the student believes will assist the student in overcoming the need, problem or barrier, and; 6) any other information the student feels will assist the dean of students in evaluating the request. Students should submit such requests to the dean of students as early as possible, in order to provide the dean with an opportunity to evaluate the need, problem or barrier, the student’s circumstances, and the requested arrangements.
The reality is that higher education, in general, is expensive and we want to make sure that our students have what they need. For information and resources on food assistance, please visit the Student Life website.
Denver Seminary recognizes that students and families have unique factors driving their decisions about health insurance. Student Life provides assistance to students as they navigate the insurance marketplace. Additional information can be found on the Student Insurance page of the Student Life tab on MyDenSem.
Health insurance is required for all international students and dependents for the duration of their studies at Denver Seminary.
