To 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.
