Parents & Caregivers
Encourage your post-secondary bound student to start researching early and visit as many colleges as possible.
Remember that going to college is the first major step in making adult decisions. Teach your post-secondary bound student about finances and make sure it's clear where to access extra support.
Know that your Role will Change
Students are treated as adults when they begin college and that means they will need to make decisions and mistakes on their own. Understand that due to confidentiality, you won't be able to check in with the college to see how your college student is doing.
Stay in touch with your college student and get a sense for how they're doing.
