Hello and welcome to Alphacrucis College. My name is Andrew Mellor and I am the Director of Student Services at AC.
At AC we have a distinguished history of successful graduates that are changing the world. Whether they be serving in pastoral ministry, business, creative arts or teaching, we are proud of our graduates and believe that as you study here at AC, you will join our alumni in changing the world.
It is the aim of our College to provide student services to all our students in such a way that we exceed their expectations and these services enhance their experience and ensure that they are well positioned to achieve success in their studies.
Student Services are provided according to Campus and Program. These Campuses of AC are:
- Baulkham Hills
- Global Online
- Perth Campus
All the services are provided consistently across all campuses and programs, unless noted.
As you navigate through the various pages you will discover services that are offered by Program Directors, Academic and Administrative personal and services that are offered by Campus Directors. If by any chance, you have questions that you cannot locate the appropriate person, please email me.
Monthly we send AC Connect, an eNewsletter, to students and this is one of the primary tools used to communicate events of the college and important dates to add to your calendar. If you are not receiving this publication please contact us.
For your interest I have included the list of AC Graduate Attributes below, these are our benchmark for gauging student’s success in study at AC.
My hope is that AC can equip you for success in your calling.Regards,
Director of Student Services
