First Year Students

You’re an important part of the first-year transition – hear from the Dean of Students and access important resources related to safety, health services, student accounts, and more.

University Police

The University Police Department (U.P) is a multi-functional service agency dedicated to the protection of the University community. In addition to crime prevention and security, U.P. issues student IDs, provides jump start and vehicle entry services (in case you lock your keys in the car), and offers on-campus vehicle escorts upon request.

Health Services

The Student Health Clinic provides comprehensive high quality healthcare for our students. Learn more about the services offered below:

Counseling Center

The Gardner-Webb University Counseling Center maintains a student-centered focus by providing academic, emotional, social, and vocational support as well as mental health consultation to students.

Student Accounts

The Student Accounts office prepares an online bill that details the following expense information:

  • Tuition
  • Housing
  • Meal plan
  • Additional fees
  • Anticipated Financial Aid

Students can access their bills through WebbConnect, but a paper bill is available upon request. For a complete list of billing services and information, visit the Student Accounts page.

FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) allows your student to grant Gardner-Webb permission to share grades, billing information, and financial aid records with you if they so choose by listing you on their FERPA release form.

If you have questions or comments and need to reach First-Year Programs, you are welcome to connect with Tammy Bass by email or phone at 704-406-2297.
