I am delighted you have chosen Graceland University. You may wish to mark My Graceland as your home page as you will return here often during your student days. Everything you need to know is included – an enrollment checklist to make sure you have taken care of all the details, how to select (or change) a meal plan, when to arrive, what to bring and many, many other topics.
 
Please check this checklist regularly for updates!

Once you have paid your deposit, logging into My Graceland will allow you to see your grades and your student account. This site is to give you access to personalized and general information. Much of the information you will need can be found under the Resources Tab.
 
It is my desire to help you fulfill your dreams. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or if there are any other ways I can assist you as you transition to the university. Hopefully soon this will feel like your home away from home.
 
Welcome to Graceland!

Belonging to something significant and worthwhile is a key component to satisfaction in college.  Your house council leaders will keep you informed of various ways that you can choose to become involved.  In addition, check out  Student Activities , Campus Ministries and a wide range of clubs and organizations !

Clubs and Organizations are primarily student initiated and student driven. It is very possible that if you have a special interest, there is already a club or organization devoted to that area.

YOU can start a group! Simply find a sponsor and contact the Student Activities Office to complete a charter form. The Council on Student Life meets weekly to approve charters.

Anyone interested in joining a club or organization can contact the sponsor or president of that group. Please call the Student Activities Office at 5230 click here  to obtain advisor information.
