Attending College

  • Parents Changing Roles & Responsibilities

    Post-secondary education is considered ADULT education, therefore, your child is now considered an adult and is now responsible for seeking out resources and advocating for themselves on their own.

    It is the student's responsibility to contact professors - not yours. Unless a consent form is filled out, professors cannot discuss a student's progress with anyone but that student.

    Parents can, however, be aware of the resources available and direct their children to seek assistance when and where it is needed.
