Issues for Parents
Just like you, we want your child's first experience with college to be a successful one. One of the most important factors will be your support. Toward that end, it is helpful to be aware of some of the differences between high school and college.
Attendance will not be monitored in the same way as high school. If your student doesn't attend regularly, no office will call to notify you of this.
Courses are designed for adult students, and may contain information of adult nature.
You will not have access to your child's grades or records. Please read further on FERPA policy.
Instructors are not available for parent conferences.
Your student will be welcomed at the Student Health Center where they will have access to reproductive information, contraception, and other health services.
College textbooks can be quite expensive. If you choose to purchase them any place beside the SBVC Bookstore, be sure you are purchasing the correct edition of the correct book.
While SBVC has one of the best safety records of any college in the Inland Empire, your child will be a minor in an adult environment. They should exercise caution at all times.
Your student will be responsible for all homework, papers and assignments. If they are having difficulty, they should speak with the instructor before or after class, or during the instructor's office hours.
