Student services

The International Student Services Office has been created to address the needs of international students by providing hospitality, care and support. The Manager of International Services is the first contact for our international students in working on all visa-related matters. This office continues to be international students’ main point of contact throughout their time at Asbury Seminary in all visa-related issues.

Housing services

New Student Orientation (NSO) is a special time designed to orient incoming students and their families to Asbury Theological Seminary’s campus and surrounding community and ready hearts and minds for the formational experience of seminary. This is also a unique opportunity to connect with students, staff, and faculty as we seek to celebrate the work God has done in the lives of new students, foster community, and provide key tools and necessary information.

ICT services

Technology resources include video production services and an information commons. The Information Commons is housed in the B.L. Fisher Library and contains Windows-based computers and Macintosh computers for students. There is also a student video editing bay.
