Here to Serve
At the heart of Kentucky Christian University is the desire to serve the needs of our students with great care and consideration, modeling the example of Christ and placing others above ourselves. The KCU Student Services department is here to ensure that each student’s needs are being met in a consistent and timely manner, so you can focus on the things that matter most. By serving our students effectively, we are able to intentionally create a learning environment that allows them to focus on their relationship with Christ, develop character, and prepare for a successful career.

Who We Are
If you have been a part of the KCU family for very long, you have likely become acquainted with our three C’s; Christ, Character, and Career. At the heart of KCU is the desire to emulate the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and lead our students in doing the same. Therefore, the Student Services department is committed to providing services that help equip and encourage students in their faith as they come to know Christ more fully, grow in the character of Christ, and prepare for their career. Whether it’s through various counseling services offered within our student support services or dorm devotionals designed to be an integral part of student housing, Christ is the standard by which we serve our student population.
In the same way that Jesus serves as our standard for serving the KCU student body, He is also the standard by which we define our expectations for students. As a Christian University, we are committed to being a community of Christians who display the character of Christ and maintain a lifestyle consistent with His teachings within the word of God. Within our Student Handbook, we have defined these expectations in detail and require that each of our students agrees to abide by these guidelines during their time as a student at KCU.
Rather than viewing these expectations as merely an obligation, we pray that each student would come to embrace these standards as a practice in developing one’s personal character and being shapes into the likeness of Christ. That being said, it is important that each student understand that the University requires adherence to these expectations, and therefore must also carry out corrective action in the case that a student’s behavior or lifestyle choices are inconsistent with the KCU Student Handbook. In this way, we are able to promote a living and learning environment on campus that is both beneficial for our students and God-honoring.
