Are you concerned about your student?
Parents and family members are often the first people a student calls when they are having difficulties in college. There are situations that arise throughout the academic year, when parents or families need to get involved or seek help for their student. Due to FERPA regulations, it can be difficult to get answers or assistance on behalf of your student.
Student Care Services may work closely with parents and families to determine how best to support students and discuss available campus and community resources. As a parent or family member, you offer a valuable perspective often providing historical information that helps Student Care Services better conceptualize the student’s behaviors, struggles, and how to successfully approach him or her with reasonable options.
