Student Services

Our beautiful Fullerton campus provides the perfect backdrop for indoor and outdoor activities. Favorite spaces to gather and relax on campus include the lawn of the Patricia Hopping Commons, the Essilor Student Center and the centrally-located outdoor amphitheater. Members of the MBKU Student Association and the staff of the Office of Student Affairs host a variety of social events that bring our optometry, PA and pharmacy students together.

The mission of the Office of Student Affairs is to advance the University’s mission by providing programs and services in a caring and supportive environment for all students that foster student success, create engagement in a diverse interprofessional experience, and develop a life-long relationship with Ketchum University.

The Office of Student Affairs is every student’s one-stop shop for all student services including academic support, financial aid, pre-orientation requirements, student activities, student counseling services and disability services.

“Being part of the MBKU’s Pharmacy School Inaugural class I became active in Student Leadership, which allowed me to become closer to the Faculty and Students.  They became my ‘Phamily.’”
