Congratulations on taking the first step to becoming a healthcare provider and WELCOME TO MBKU! We are so thrilled to have you.

This page is designed to serve as a hub of information for all new first-year students. Learn about University departments and services, connect with your Peer Advisor, prepare for New Student Orientation, learn about student life, and get all your questions answered. New students are each assigned a Peer Advisor for support, advice, and guidance about life and learning at MBKU. Your Peer Advisor should reach out to you sometime prior to orientation. Check out our Peer Advice blog posts!

If you're having trouble finding what you're looking for, please email Enrollment and Student Services ( or reach out to your Program Admissions Officer. For information related to your Program Orientation, visit the SCCO, SPAS, and COP pages.
