Parents sometimes wonder why they cannot obtain information about their son or daughter's academic progress directly from the university. Visit the FERPA page for a parent's guide to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
As the parent of a college student, it can be difficult to decide when to step in and offer assistance, and when to step back and trust your student to work things out on his/her own. The following are recommended readings for parents of college students:
Letting Go: A Parent's Guide to Understanding the College Years by Karen Levin Coburn & Madge Lawrence Treeger
You're On Your Own (But I'm Here If You Need Me): Mentoring Your Child During the College Years by Marjorie Savage
One common challenge for new college students is sharing a living space with a roommate. Visit our Transfer Student site to find a number of helpful hints for advising your son or daughter on handling roommate issues.
If your son or daughter is in need of assistance and is uncertain of the best resource, please encourage her/him to contact the Dean of Students Office at 651-523-2421.
