Parents

Welcome to the Family

As your son or daughter begins a new chapter in his or her educational endeavors, you, as a parent, enter into a new chapter as well. As a parent, you have likely been active in the educational endeavors of your children. In college, the ability to be involved with their educational plan changes significantly. For example, parents’ ability to access information about their son or daughter’s educational records is significantly different between high school and college.

This change can leave parents feeling detached from their son's or daughter's college education and unsure how to be helpful and supportive. Use this page as a resource for valuable information about the differences between high school and college, legal constraints and options, security, and a checklist that can guide you through the admissions and enrollment process.
