The Office of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services

The mission of the UTHSC Office of Student Affairs and Enrollment Services is to provide integrated and comprehensive quality services that enhance student access, progression, learning, success, leadership, and community outreach throughout the student lifecycle and beyond. We understand that learning takes place in the classroom, clinical settings, and through other education exchanges. Therefore, we endeavor to simultaneously build an enriched high quality environment with staff committed to the recruitment, enrollment, transition, retention, holistic development, and graduation of students in the healthcare professions.
